Senior Scribbles Unearthed
You are sure to discover something in these tales – about yourself, your friends and relatives – perhaps even a favorite pet. They are all “tall and true” – as Chuck Thurston describes them. Originally published as newspaper columns in a number of small dailies, Thurston has “unearthed” this collection for first time book publication. A senior himself, he understands and empathizes with his cohort as we all march into maturity carrying our memories and recollections ; sometimes with dignity -- often laced with a little silliness -- that helps us get through our golden years. There is plenty of humor here, and a little nostalgia; perhaps even a bit of wisdom that the author claims he probably doesn’t deserve, but “will gratefully accept.”
It's rare to find a writer whose warmth, insight and sense of humor show through so clearly in his work. Chuck has a unique gift for melding fond memories and everyday occurrences into provocative, heart warming and always entertaining stories. Be warned: once you are drawn into his work -- a unique blend of homespun wisdom and astute observations -- you won't want to leave."
