FUTURE A LA CARTE

A personal ""we did it"" story tells how Mrs. Morse and her husband Warren, 49 and 52 respectively, threw over the traces and started life anew in middle age. Their ""Operation Future"", which included running a small restaurant-hotel on Martha's Vineyard and then spending their winters in Florida, began against the odds that the Morses were already a well settled, well adjusted and well off family. They had a comfortable yearly income, a summer house on the Vineyard, winter quarters in New York, and an attractive set of children and grandchildren. But they also had a rut into which they felt they were getting deeper every day, so they gave it all up, moved permanently to the Vineyard and began to work their fingers to the bone in their new small hotel business.. As it turned out their work was a pleasure to them. Within three years their business had doubled and they returned to Sarasota, and to the Vineyard, each time with more to look forward to. And as Mrs. Morse describes it all, with a veil of humor over their mistakes and hearty cheers for natural success, she does so in a way that should appeal to all with a yen for the same kind of adventures. Useful hotel menus and budgets included.
