There’s a dearth of information on the everyday lives of the active and so-called “nearly elderly”—those sixty years of age and older. As is the case in any stage of life, it is infinitely easier to face the prospect of growing older if one has some inkling about what to expect. For all those older as well as younger people who are curious about the perceptions and experiences of aging folks, Old and Cold offers light-hearted yet realistic insight. Readers will enjoy the author’s tongue-in-cheek, droll approach and will find within these pages sprinkles of wisdom as well as humorous episodes. Herein lies a thoroughly candid look at life in the years after vigorous youth but before decrepitude.
