BOOMERS !

Tip #  414  The only consequence to  to more candles on the cake - is a hotter party!

Read the book - join the movement!

Vintage Blenko -  Yes!  Older can be Better! 
BOOMERS   was written by James T.  He and his wife Karen have owned  GOOD LIVING ( a series of retirement homes) since 1982.

Karen and James were in their late 20s  early 30s when they opened GOOD LIVING.   Karen a MSW- focused on Elderly  (social worker) and James ( a multi talented community organizer )  became involved in aging as young people.  Now both nearing or in the age ( 60) we  ( those of us under 30) consider to be OLD!   Karen and James are the final word on aging in West Virginia. 

I'm going to suggest if you are a Senior who collects glass,  you know a senior,  or like me - your parents are in the 60s  - purchase this book.

It is filled with practical ideas and good humor.

My guess is the average age of your blog reader is over 60.
Except for a few dozen yuppies
in the medical field this group is old by your standards.

Why do you think of 60 as old?
