Didn't My Skin Used to Fit by Martha Bolton is a comical little book about getting older. Bolton takes all the signs of aging {sagging skin, forgetfulness, impatience} and mixes them with her own experiences and advice to get through it. at the end of each chapter there is a quote, sometime funny sometimes meaningful. One quote is "The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it." One of the funnier ones was, "You know you're old when getting in the groove m ...more
Funny. She wrote for Phyllis Diller and Bob Hope & her quips are naturally in that style. Seemed very familiar.

You might as well find the humor in aging, it doesn't do any good to fight it.

I had to read this book in small doses, the one-liners got old for me when I read too much at once. Good one to read in doctor's offices though.
[b] Didn't My Skin Used to Fit?: Living, Laughing, Loving Life after Forty!Martha Bolton

This was funny and I enjoyed reading it. I'm not quite at the life point of this book but it's nice to know what to expect. And some of it sounds like fun, sort of.

There are some nice bits of wisdom in there too, friends and priorities it's not just a crazy old lady moaning about wrinkles and losing the marbles.

I'm not sure being 100 years old would let you pay off three consecutive mortgages. They don't gi
This is a way to help us see the humor and embrace getting older. It's a fun read with many laugh out loud moments.
Great book about growing old. Even takes a few pot shots at men. Martha Bolton is a modern day Erma Bombeck.
I loved the hummer in this book.
Whether you are past 40 or not yet there you will find this book most entertaining. Martha Bolton takes growing older with a slab of humor. From hearing lost to becoming my own grandpa this book will leave you laughing not only at yourself but with others that are suffering from the effects of living a long live.
It was a book that I didn't want to put down and didn't want it to end. I will be looking into her other books and hoping for as much levity as possible.
Absolutely hilariousness!! i loved it!!! It is so funny that i would meet with my sisters and reread parts of it so they will laugh too. People buy it and you wont regret it.

Soild book of little essays about getting older. Some essays were funny and I felt myself nodding in agreement, however there were just as many that fell flat.
Thought this was real cute. An easy read to pass the time while waiting for my husband to have tests run in the hospital. Helped to lift my spirits.

This was a cute and funny look at life as we age……brought a smile to my face and few chuckles as well.
I was so excited to read this. Didn't get past chapter 3. It just wasn't funny. Boo...
