Being "old" isn't what it used to be. Elders today are active, fun, and ready for something new. Stay young at heart with the wit, wisdom, and inspiration you'll find in this book by Ed Fischer.
It's time to be the new you.
Live it up.
Laugh often.
Love life like never before.

This gave me several chuckles during my holiday week. This is a collection of jokes and quotes on old(er) age from authors (including Agathe Christie and P. D. Whitte), actors (like Bill Cosby and Ingrid Bergman) and other entertainers (i.e. Jim Dale and George Burns). There are also fun cartoons, although some of these were a bit harder to read on my Kindle.

I think my favorites were right at the beginning but there were fun jokes all the way through. It is a quick read that can cheer someone who is maturing gracefully or maybe someone who isn’t and who might benefit from a lighter perspective. After all, as the quote from one of my favorite T-shirts states: “Never take life too seriously. No one gets out alive.”

I recommend this to anyone who wants a pick-me-up look at growing old or wants to share with an “old(er)” friend. And remember: ‘You might be old, but you’re not obsolete’ (quote from Terminator  Genisys).

This is from my TBR shelf 2012 and is my "Y" title for 2015 Alphabet Soup Challenge.
