Tony and Yvonne were 75 years old and had been married for fifty years and RVing for the last twenty. Though they were far from rich, they managed to get by because they carefully watched their pennies while they stayed at their home park and took occasional trips to visit family across the country.

Though not young, they were both in very good health, largely due to Yvonne's insistence on healthy foods and walking the RV parks' nature trails for the last decade.

One day, their good health didn't help when they went on an airline trip to see their son's family and their plane crashed, sending them off to Heaven.

They reached the pearly gates, and St. Peter escorted them inside. He took them to a brand new 45'mobile home, five large slide outs, furnished in their favorite colors and fabrics, with a fully stocked kitchen and a jacuzzi in the bath. Their favorite clothes were all hanging in the closet.  They gasped in astonishment when he said, 'Welcome to Heaven. This will be your home now.' 
Tony asked Peter how much all this was going to cost. 'Why, nothing,' Peter replied, 'remember, this is your reward in Heaven.'
Tony looked out the window and right there he saw a championship golf course, finer and more beautiful than any ever built on Earth..
'What are the greens fees?,' grumbled Tony..
'This is heaven,' St. Peter replied. 'You can play for free, every day.'

Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch, all you can eat.
'Don't even ask,' said St. Peter to Tony. This is Heaven, it is all free for you to enjoy.'

Tony looked around and nervously asked Yvonne  'Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol foods, the bran flakes and the decaffeinated tea?'

'That's the best part,' St. Peter replied. 'You can eat and drink as much as you like and you will never get fat or sick.   This is Heaven!'

'No gym to work out at?' said Tony
'Not unless you want to,' was the answer.
'No testing my sugar or blood pressure or...'
'Never again'

Tony glared at Yvonne and said, 'You and your Bran Flakes. We could have been here ten years ago!'
