An exciting trip down memory lane and a look into the future.

Little Billy asked his grandmother how long she planned to stay 39, because on each birthday when asked how old she was, she would reply, "I'm still 39 and holding." To which Billy replied, "Granny do you think you can stay 39 forever?"

Far too many of us take growing old and old age too

Overview

An exciting trip down memory lane and a look into the future.

Little Billy asked his grandmother how long she planned to stay 39, because on each birthday when asked how old she was, she would reply, "I'm still 39 and holding." To which Billy replied, "Granny do you think you can stay 39 forever?"

Far too many of us take growing old and old age too seriously. We need to lighten up...go with the flow. A sage is reported to have said, "You grow up the day you can laugh at yourself."

This volume of poems presents a humerous, and at times a serious, view of growing older. It is a follow up to the author's book, "Have You Hugged Your Parents Lately?" A book in which a deep and serious look is taken at aging, it's problems and challenges.

There is a second part in this book in which the author takes a nostalgic trip back into his childhood in rural Georgia, which he refers to as, "We didn't know the depression was over until the middle 50s."

This poetic trip and the poems on aging will delight and encourage the hearts of all who read this book.

It is an ideal gift for young and old.
