Martha Bolton's writings have always brought a chuckle from deep within my being. When fighting the duldrums, I've picked up a couple of stories that were posted on Focus on the Family by Martha Bolton and my spirits are lifted in no time. Bolton's willingness to get the reader laughing by poking fun at her own experiences is masterful.
This book is a wonderful gift to give to that friend who is about to "roll over the hill." You can help them "roll over the hill" by getting them to roll over in laughter. It doesn't matter what decade one is passing into, 40, 50, 60, the stories are timeless and ageless. We will all read ourselves into the situation that she is writing about. The descriptions she uses are hillarious. Chapter 7, "Changing With the Times," deals with the change of life-menopause--and anyone who has or is experiencing the change of life will thoroughly enjoy this one. You may even be able to laugh yourself right through that hot flash!
Bolton's chapter, "Yo Quiero No Discount," is a story about the time she was given a senior discount at a fast food restaurant at a young age of just over 40. She imagines revenge by paper-cutting the server "to a pulp with my birth certificate!" That is just one example of the humor you will encounter in this book.
If you don't have a friend to give the book to, at least get it for yourself whether you are 30, 40, 50 or older! The humor will be appreciated by anyone at any age.
