9781518804410: They Call Me Papa

For many in the baby boomer generation, the retirement years have arrived. For some it’s frightening, but for others, it’s a fantastic time of exploration, revival, and rejuvenation. Best of all, it’s the time when you can finally pursue your dreams, not the dreams others have imposed on you.

In They Call Me Papa, author Ron Turner presents an extraordinary collection of thoughts, musings, and reflections about this unique period of his life and the distinct perspective he has gained about what it means to be alive. With sections titled “Time,” “Love,” “Men,” “God,” and “Joy,” Turner offers thoughtful and often humorous reflections of a young boomer on the joys and challenges of retirement, aging, grandchildren, mortality, and much more with readable, honest language that penetrates straight into the heart, soul, and mind.

Works such as “Baby Steps,” “Baggage,” “Fathers and Sons,” “My Stomach Hurts,” and “Victoria’s Secret” are a candid and deeply personal glimpse into a life full of rich memories and keen insight. Turner is a man comfortable in his own skin and unafraid to share his philosophical—and even physical—struggles.

Insightful, poignant, and entertaining, this collection is a must-read for anyone entering into a new phase of life, regardless of age.
