If you are looking for one of those quirky little books that is just fun to read, The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade by Virginia Smith will fit the bill. It is light hearted and yet touching on the subject of “quitting” life when you retire.
Al is 3 years and 63 days away from retirement and can wait. He plans on doing nothing. Rising late, relaxing on the porch while drinking his morning coffee and putting his feet up. The problem is his wife has other plans. Plans that may take just a little bit of finesse to make sure he is willing to go along.
Millie wants to buy the local run down manson and redo it into a B&B. She has dreamed of owning this house since as a little girl she and attended a birthday party there. But she knows that Al will not be on board until he thinks it is his idea.
Of course anyone that is married recognizes the things we do to get our spouses to see our side of an idea. Which of course then makes us laugh out loud when we find those little schemes on the pages of a book.
With a whole community of people that will tickle your funny bone, Goose Creek is a wonderful little read for those summer evenings when the crickets are singing and it is time to go in, but you are just not ready yet.
