Dave Barry is a boomer as I am. It is only now that I realize this that I understand why his writing has resonated for me. We are having similar experiences at roughly the same time. So when he turned 70, he sat down to try to figure out why his aging family dog was living a happy life and he was not. So with characteristic Barry humor, he tells us the lessons he has learned like live in the present, keep having fun, make new friends and keep the old. Although this was published in 2019, for me, the lessons also apply for all of us during covid.
The last chapter is the first time I have read Barry with tears that were not from laughter. In it he tells the story of his teen-aged daughter’s serious illness. He takes a last lesson of gratitude for what he has.
