However-this one is on me for not checking..this is a small book, about the size of my hand, with 34 pages...it is an illustrated poem...From the title, I thought is was something totally different. Should have read the description. If this is what you are buying, then of course this is it...some very poignant-but also stereotypical-comments about those of us getting up that age-hill; maybe ordering this by accident was not really that accidental and this is God trying to tell me something. However, I am intensely averse to the color purple and hope my color vision shall be preserved for a long time-so as not to become that old woman who wears purple..other than that, my girl-friends and I will get a good laugh out of this...
My mom said this often to explain away the quirks of old age. She's gone now and I have taken over the use of this Epithet for weird or just peculiar behavior.
