My Elderly Space

A look at the remarkable lives of the elderly

 

Assisted Loving

Let's face it. There's a certain side to your parents that you'd rather not know about--their love life. This holds true whether you are 5 years old or 50 years old. So when author Bob Morris is pulled into his father's dating scene after the passing of his mother, you know there will be plenty of awkward, hilarious, and oftentimes touching moments.

Bob's father Joe is a swinging 80-year-old, with more dates than he can handle. Apparently it's easy when you simply outlive your competition. An able-and-fit 80-year-old with a ride is hot commodity whether you're in a New Jersey or Florida. With plenty of fish in sea, he seeks Bob's help, and more importantly, his opinion on the right type of gal. Bob grudgingly accepts at first but soon finds himself wanting more. Who's he seeing tonight? Where does she live? What was she wearing? It's a fun, light read with an interesting twist on your typical father and son story.

I found myself laughing out loud more than once. Not only because it's funny but because I've experienced some of these things myself. There may be a few stereotypes about the elderly here or there, but the rest of the book just blows them right out of the water. I hope everyone can read this and realize that you can still have a life at 80. Maybe that'll cure those with a persistent fear of aging!

Hop on over to pick up the book or to read more reviews.
