    Excellent Read!

    I'VE NEVER BEEN AN OLD MAN is a must read for baby boomers and seniors. New author, Don Larsen, has written a non-fictional account of his personal triumphs and setbacks as he enters a new phase of his life; an elderly man caring for his ailing wife. This is much more than a man relaying his experiences as a caregiver. Mr. Larsen has created a humorous, honest approach to handling what life is throwing his way. Readers will be treated to an attitude that we should all try to emulate. Mr. Larsen has a zest for life that leaves me in awe, as well as exhausted. With his personal philosophy being, 'I believe an active mind and body retards the aging process', it is obvious that being in his late 70's is not a reason to give up and sit in a rocker. Under the humor and the day-to-day obstacles in his life, there is a moving love story that emerges quietly. After being married for well over 50 years, his beloved wife Jacquie has numerous health problems as well as impending dementia. They take showers together so he can hold her, protect her from falling, and be by her side. Those are certainly not the reasons they might have showered together many years before. This might not be the love carried out as a physical act, but it is love at its most pure. It was a poignant and moving scene that brought tears to my eyes. I highly recommend this book for anyone that needs a reality check on aging. If you are a senior that can't get motivated or if you are a boomer with parents that can't get involved in life; this book is for you! This book might just be the inspiration to get up, get out, and live life to the fullest. I found it to be an enjoyable read from cover to cover. Don't wait until your 'golden years' to enjoy the fruits of your labor....enjoy them NOW. If you are in your golden years, take a page from Mr. Larsen's book and find ways to stay active. 'Get in; buckle your seat belt, and enjoy some of his golden years, his cats, health misfortunes, and anything else crossing the highway of his life.' You will be glad you did.
