This sparkling collection of golden age wit and wisdom is proof-positive that the stereotypes of knitting grannies and doddering granddads just aren't true anymore - if, indeed, they ever were. Senior citizens are not going gentle into that good night. They're still out there, living life to the full, taking selfies, 'silver' surfing the net and showing the rest of us how to grow up and grow old disgracefully. Because as Maurice Chevalier said, "Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative."
