In her breezy, optimistic voice, Rosalind Starrels Greenwald selects vivid memories from her century of life, such as when her Philadelphia home was wired for electricity, how the new Frigidaire replaced the icebox, and how she and her family and friends gathered around the RCA radio and the Victrola. Greenwald celebrates the memory of her husband of fifty-three years, Louis Greenwald, a dental surgeon and Army officer who served overseas in World War II, In search of new surroundings during those lonely, unfamiliar years, Greenwald brought her infant daughter to idyllic Miami Beach, where she discovered her love of South Florida, and what became her lifelong joy of living near the sea. Today. at her home in an upscale retirement community in sunny Pompano Beach, Florida, Greenwald enjoys the company of dear friends, a new family that shares similar memories of long lives well-lived. Greenwald's Victrola and RCA radio are now distant memories, but today she embraces twenty-first century communications, including face-to-face computer chats wit her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Greenwald recounts her love of travel, from camping with her husband and their son and daughter in coastal Maine and Massachusetts, to jet travel where she toured Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. You will be delighted by Greenwald's joy and pride and enthusiasm for meeting new people, discovering new foods, and seeing the beauty the world offers near and far. This treasure of a book will inspire and charm readers of all ages-children, teens, middle-aged folks, and young-minded "senior citizens" in their sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties, and yes, even those into their one-hundreds. Rosalind Starrels Greenwald acknowledges that longevity involves difficult losses, but life is for the living, and each day can be filled with wonder, adventure, learnign, creativity, discovery, family, friendship and love.

About the Author:

Rosalind Starrels Greenwald was born in Philadelphia in 1914, the youngest of six brothers and three sisters. She described life with so many siblings this way: "I had a lot of bosses" Her oldest brother was twenty-five when Rosalind was born. Rosalind, who preferred to be called "Roz" studied early childhood education at the Illman School, which was associated with the University of Pennsylvania. She taught kindergarten for fifteen years, and was involved in the development of the national Head Start Program. Roz married Dr. Louis Greenwald, a dentist, and they had two children, Marjorie and Michael. Roz had three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Roz lived in Florida for thirty-seven years, until she passed away peacefully in Fort Lauderdale on May 12, 2014. For over twenty-five years, Roz taught knitting and crocheting as a volunteer at the Douglas Gardens Home and Hospital for the Aged in Miami. Throughout her life, Roz traveled extensively. She went around the world a couple of times, landing on every continent except Antarctica. Roz possessed a love for music and art, and was an avid reader. She played Scrabble, trivia games, bridge, and gin rummy, and, by her own admission, was an excellent swimmer. Roz's chronological age did not match her youthful appearance and zest for life!
