Dear Old Friends will remind you that you don't stop playing because you got old--you got old because you stopped playing. Besides a Happy Memoir from an author who wrote this book at age 44 and 85--yes, that's correct--it's full of loving advice for aging magnificently. You'll want to read it and want all your Dear Old Friends--not just your parents, to read and laugh and learn and think about how satisfying it is to be someone's Dear Old Friend.   XO, Jim
