Review: So Who’s Counting?: The Little Quote Book About Growing Older and Still Kicking Ass

So Who's Counting?: The Little Quote Book About Growing Older and Still Kicking Ass

So Who’s Counting?: The Little Quote Book About Growing Older and Still Kicking Ass by Erin McHugh

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this diminutive book of quotes. I’ve heard a few of these quotes before but many of them were new to me. I liked Groucho Marx’s line, “I intend to live forever or die trying.” It’s a fun little book for the coffee table.

Book Description: So long nostalgia, and goodbye resignation! This book of quotes reminds us that growing old isn’t about slowing down and taking it easy—it’s a chance to ask, “What’s next?”

“Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you should have been.” —David Bowie

Sixty is the new fifty, seventy’s the new sixty, and older is getting younger every day. With fun, forward-looking, and inspiring quotes, So Who’s Counting is the ideal gift for baby boomers or anyone reaching a major age milestone. Instead of cloying sentimentality or the standard sagging-body-part jokes, it strikes the perfect balance of humor, guidance, reflection, bon mots. Quotes are divided into eight sections, such as “As Old as You Feel,” “Laughter: The Best Prescription,” and “Aged to Perfection.” So Who’s Counting is all about aging with gusto and celebrating what lies ahead.

For the most part I enjoyed using Farberware’s waffle maker. On the downside, you get the odd tail on the waffle from the pour spout.

That being said, you can easily break away the excess with a fork.

All in all, it works as advertised and I give it a thumbs up …

RIP Raven Grimassi

I have just learned that Raven Grimassi, has passed away. His wife, Stephanie Ann Zarrabi (pen-name Stephanie Taylor), announced that Grimassi died on March 10, 2019, following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

“The soul is drawn into a lineage that anchors it in a specific current within the Material Plane. There are many lessons to be gained and many challenges to temper the soul. There is also a flowing river of consciousness from the past that empowers us with knowledge and wisdom.”

Some partial nudity is okay

A few years ago, a dear friend of mine had to change the cover of her book on Amazon due to a “slight” ( and I do mean a slight ) amount of an anal cleft. That being said, I was sent a list of ebooks on today and what did my little eye spy?
