More About This Book

Overview

If you want to enjoy getting older and becoming a "senior"citizen, this book is for you. If you are over age 50, this book is for you or, if you hope to reach age 50, this book is also for you. Age changes one's perspective about everything. Ideas you once thought were set in stone, people who would never change, values etched in steel and assumptions that things would always work out like they have in the past, will all change. This is what makes life interesting. You can never be certain where life's road will lead you. Being able to laugh at yourself as you travel along this road is an indispensable tool for maintaining your sanity in an ever-changing world. Looking at life from this perspective can be a great blessing. It is much easier to see the world around you from the top of the mountain than it is from only half-way to the top. "Been there, done that" becomes increasingly true as you advance in years. As a newspaper columnist and story-teller, Thomas writes about every-day occurrences, but with an off-center sense of humor. You will find yourself laughing with him and at yourself as he opens the door to your memories. If you want to enjoy getting older, this book is just what the doctor ordered. Or, if you know of someone who is getting older, do them a favor . . . recommend it to them so they can laugh with you. Seniors, especially, will enjoy this book. All of the stories in this book can be shared with children and grandchildren, as well as others. They will laugh at them as well as at you as you open the to door to your memories, creating an opportunity for you to share your life with them. You may both be inspired to talk more often, as well as to talk about what is really important in life and to share the things you love with the people you love.
