Growing Old is Not for the Faint of Heart.
We are the Taffy Generation, pulled into two different directions. As we live longer and have children later, we find our parents becoming frail and helpless, just as our children are becoming independent and leaving the nest (or not, but that's a whole 'nuther conversation).

I begin reading Geezer Stories while drinking my morning coffee, continued reading while drinking my afternoon water and finished reading it with my evening beer. It was a day well spent in great company. The author deals with the good and the bad of aging parents. I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself into her world and walked away with a better understanding of my world.
