Introduction

With wry humor and take-no-prisoners storytelling, Marci Slade Crestani explores the far-reaching transformations that occur once you’re past the age of fifty. In this collection of thirty essays, she brings a fresh perspective to some of the changes we expect – and also mines new territory with canny observations and an occasional sense of the ridiculous. Her broad range of topics includes underwear, birthdays, funerals, divorce, Botox, acupuncture, longevity, houseguests…. and goes on from there. In reading her thoughts and stories, you may recognize yourself or someone you know.

This was such an insightful & humorous look at aging ... I could really relate to her observations. A new Erma Bombeck has emerged! Excellent book!

Marci Slade Crestani has a great sense of humor.
She knows how to put a spin on growing up, raising kids, adult children, marriage, and all stages a "half-way to deader" goes through.
