GrandPa, Were you Young Once? by William C. Cloud

Nostalgia at its best.  Gould's book Grandpa were you Young Once?  definitely takes the reader down memory lane.  The book is designed in such a way as to share your memories right in the book with your grandchildren.  It would be a wonderful book to give to Grandpa this Christmas and have him work all year and gift it back to his grand child next Christmas.  It is written with the thought of helping to bridge the generation gap.  Such a nice book that everyone can relate to.  The author uses his own memories to ignite the reader's memories of their own "good old days."  Questions are asked about When you were young what was your favorite...
  • TV shows
  • Toys
  • Books
  • Movies
  • Clothes
  • Food
  • Hobbies
  • Vacations
or  When you were growing up, did you....
  • have a favorite (or least) subject in school
  • play sports
  • favorite music
  • friends
  • have a job
  • favorite sayings
And Now that you are older....
  • favorite car(s)
  • favorite Job(s)
  • adventures you had
  • homes
  • military 
  • meeting G'ma
  • retirement
  • favorite place in the world

So take a trip down memory lane and invest in Mr. Gould's book I'm sure you won't be sorry.   Visit the book's web site for  a bit of good ol' day stuff; poke around never know what you might find in the attic or the basement of this site. 

William (Old Bill) Gould has given many seminars on senior memories over the past five years. That experience was the basis for this, his third book, but the first one he has written on this topic. He has lived on both coasts and in the heartland as well as overseas, so he has a broad, curmudgeonly outlook. He began his "memories" work when he discovered how many interesting stories of his friends were simply being lost as they passed away. This work was his way of "giving back". A portion of the book's proceeds goes to The First Tee of Greater Sacramento, another of Old Bill's retirement passions.
