Description

Old Folk? Old folk, wearing tartan slippers, trammelled into the backwater of a comfy armchair in front of the tele? "Sit down GrandMa, I'll get you a nice cup of cocoa". Oh yes, this is the lot of many geriatrics these days. When these out-of-sight `oldies' do grope for a cane to stand up on shaky legs and open their mouths, they are perceived as cantankerous, rude, gossipy and out-of-date: "Have another biscuit GrandPa." Born in times of war and adversity, these humble oldies remain canny, experienced and brave - they reminisce and remember! They are especially `up for it' when confronted with challenges, problems or oppression that could seriously affect their ways of life, bring about financial difficulties, interfere with a colleagues' welfare, even to destroy hard-earned reputations. Geriatricks 1 has a cast of doughty, eccentric and humourous oldie characters who will just not `stay out of sight and sit quietly'. Geriatricks 1 unfolds as a series of novellas and poetry that will transport you into a world where `old `uns' address or answer their call to duty! Will their devilish plots, ploys and whirlwind fightbacks confound, bemuse to eventually lead to the defeat of their adversaries, and bring about victory - or not?
