|"Upson Downes" By Dottie Maley|
Retiree Dottie Maley takes readers behind the scenes of fictitious Horace Binkbottom's sidesplitting and heartwarming journey through retirement at the overwhelmingly exciting retirement community in her new book, "Upson Downes. The community of Upson Downes is full of quirky and lovable characters that break down negative stereotypes of retirement communities and highlight the perks of having friendships, love and adventures during this new stage of life. With rollicking mishaps and wonderful friends, "Upson Downes" shows life can be unexpected at any age.
Upon receipt of the book I couldn't wait to sit down and read it and I wasn't disappointed.
This book, though small, contained many humorous references and incidents that only folks of the "older" generation can dearly appreciate.
Now that I have slid into retirement, I can better understand how others in the same age groups continue living in the retirement communities that they have chosen. Life must go on after all.
I recommend the book as a great and quick read!
