New Book of Humorous Nursery Rhymes Laughs at Aging
Methuen, MA (MMD Newswire) February 5, 2013 -- In 45 witty poems GRANDMOTHER GOOSE: RHYMES FOR A SECOND CHILDHOOD (Mindstir Media, 2013) helps seniors find humor in growing older. It's difficult to pick a favorite from the group, but one example that illustrates the spirit of the book is:
    Broken Romance
    Jane and Bill walked up the hill leaning on their canes.
    They huffed, they puffed, they struggled, but moved on, despite their pains.
    But Jane did trip and broke her hip; and because Bill failed to block her,
    she loves him no more, showed him the door, and now she dates her doctor.

Other clever rhymes throw a humorous light on a range of topics that challenge seniors--including coping with computers, discrimination against elderly drivers, financial concerns, physical changes ("Where did this belly come from? When did my boobs go south? What happened to the pearly whites that used to fill my mouth?...) and more.

GRANDMOTHER GOOSE is written by Rose Madeline Mula, a frequent contributor to The Saturday Evening Post and dozens of other magazines and newspapers, author of two collections of humorous essays (If These Are Laugh Lines, I'm Having Way Too Much Fun and The Beautiful People and Other Aggravations, both published by Pelican Publishing), and a monthly humor columnist for

The book's whimsical illustrations are by Don Trawin, also a frequent contributor to The Saturday Evening Post, as well as Fortune, Changing Times, and many other publications.
