Short Description

At the age of sixty I decided that instead of bringing a cake to the office on my birthday I would publish an annual summary of experiences I had during the year. The intention was to share with friends younger than me experiences that can only come true at an older age. At the age of seventy, I decided that since I really enjoyed my stories, more people might enjoy them - and the book is in front of you.
