It's no secret that our society is ageist. The elderly barely get a second glance, much less a moment of our time or thoughts. This thoughtful series reminds us of the vitality and spunk in the elderly folks that we're so quick to write off.
The delightful series is amusing, vibrant and, best of all, it shows us that there is life after retirement -- and it doesn't have to be filled with crochet and cats.
