Humorist, Verna Gillis, lets us know that SEVENTY IS THE NEW SEVENTY .. She is a one-liner kind of person who thinks in bumper stickers. You will laugh, identify and think of people you might not want to remember, as well as those you love. Laughing , as we know, is a good thing. Laughing at ourselves is essential . To the point – sometimes sharp; never flat.
