Dear Friends and Readers,
I just wanted to let you know that my new book, Adventures In The Old Folks Home, is now available through Amazon. It’s a collection of anecdotes about the characters and situations I’ve encountered while residing in two different assisted living facilities. They are often funny, sometimes sad, and always about real people. I will make an electronic version available soon and list the paperback with other retailers, but I wanted to make it available in time for the holidays.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have ordered my other book and have been regular visitors to my blog.
Wishing you happy holidays and a healthy and prosperous new year,
