CHANNILLO
Grandmas Gone Wild
By Aline Pusecker Taylor

Series Description:

When first hired as the property manager of Sunny Harbor Retirement Village*, I mistakenly assumed I'd work with sweet little grannies who crocheted blankets and played shuffleboard for excitement. That stereotype vanished the second Florence walked into my office complaining about her former boyfriend’s new girlfriend’s “collection.” This place was Grace and Frankie meets Melrose Place meets Animal House and forever changed my perception of aging.
