Boomers Retire The Boomer Sisters Hang Up their Spurs

Their rocking chairs still in the shed, they seek ways to be creative, make money, be fulfilled and well, survive until they hit 100. They invite banter on everything, from traveling safely to investing wisely and sandwiching the generations. But you'll find quirky stuff too, like how to handle Scrabble addiction, travel with dogs, and how-to-not murder your mate with your newly freed time.
