This book is strictly for laughs. It is about three generations of women sharing the same home. Grandma, a recent widow, and a free spirit who likes to try new things, her strait-laced daughter who worries about what the neighbors will say, and a thirty-year-old who returns home after a short, disastrous marriage. Grandma's social life consists of going to funerals or going to the doctor's office an hour before her appointment to learn why other patients in the waiting room are there. She decides to branch out into senior trips, volunteerism, career choices, and annoying her daughter and granddaughter. Every multi-generational home should have a copy of this book to put things into perspective. We're all going to die some day. Every other day we aren't so we might as well live it to the fullest.
