Living It Up On The Way Out gathers together poems, essays, scriptures, stories, jokes, and prayers about growing older and enjoying it. Most were given to Bloom from senior citizens, or what he likes to call "Keenagers". Included are essays by Erma Bombeck, Jenny Joseph, and Forrest Nees. With people living longer, why not learn to laugh and continue living to the best? For most of us, "the best is yet to come".
