You've seen ads for online dating on television, in newspapers, and (naturally) on computer popups. The models are cute, handsome, young, or at least looking good for their age. But what REALLY happens when a computer semi-illiterate 60ish widow is prodded into this very 21st century form of dating---when the last time she dated was when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon? Getting back into dating makes her feel young. Actual dating makes her realize she is NOT sixteen anymore. What started out as entries on her Facebook page have expanded into detailed accounts of dating foibles and feats. Anyone who has embraced the concept of online dating, no matter at what age, will find her adventures laugh-out-loud funny and charming.

Fate had other plans when she and her daughters suffered the sudden and unexpected death of her husband. But life has a way of evening things out, and with the help of two special angels in heaven and her family here on Earth, Becky began a short but very interesting journey the summer one of her daughters put her on an electronic dating site. The result was a book about old people dating. And a new husband! Becky now lives west of Des Moines with her husband, Dave, and like every other grandparent, they try not to brag about their grandchildren. . .but fail!
