Jenny Stanton hosts Sandy Lingo, teacher, writer, traveler and humorist, as she navigates the landscape of aging, foreign countries and a move into the city.
Sandy uses humor with a wink to share her lists of things we need to get rid of: navy, fungus and ovaries. She finds aging, at this stage, as shocking and as thrilling as adolescence, surprised constantly at what the body can or can no longer do.
Her status as retired teacher, "the best kind," allows for travel with family to exotic locales such as China, South America and Europe. In contrast to the typical guidebook, her writing offers suggestions on toilets - the cleanest and the most challenging.
Finally, as Sandy shares stories of she and her husband's move to downtown Cincinnati, she relishes not only in the new found humor and love, but freedom too.
Listeners will want to age along with Sandy, in the hopes they too will find the laughter amidst the altered body parts!
