Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A blend of touching stories, fascinating facts, and rollicking humor is presented in this entertaining look at the jaunt towards senior citizenship. Guaranteed to stir souls, stimulate minds, and tickle funny bones, the chapters include Why Its Great to Be Chronologically Endowed, Grandkids Say the Darnedest Things, The Lighter Side of Aging, and Jest for the Health of It. Advice on enjoying ones golden years is featured, from how to accumulate happiness and social wisdom to the delights of retirement. With puns, jokes, riddles, and puzzles illuminating important aspects on the aging process, this uproarious guide also lists outstanding achievements by “chronologically gifted” leaders, artists, writers, and athletes.
