It’s not about looking at life through rose-colored glasses. It’s about a guy who is happy looking at life through bifocals that still get steamed up and sometimes a little ‘teared’ up watching the summer sunshine of his life turn to autumn gold
Indianapolis (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
Author and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame radio personality Dick Summer, shows readers how he avoids letting all the candles on his birthday cake set off the every day sprinkler systems that can put out the fire in anyone’s life.
In his new book, “Staying Happy, Healthy and Hot: We’re the Brand-New Louie Louie Generation” (published by iUniverse), Summer admits his “New Louie Louie Generation folks don’t look like the people in the beer commercials anymore, with their fancy abs and their perky breasts.” But he says, “We have some surprises in store for the ‘Pimple People’ and the ‘Dreary Drones’ who think we have any intention of letting ourselves turn into a bunch of lukewarm slabs of meat.”
“Staying Happy, Healthy and Hot” is a collection of true short stories about Summer’s life that show how staying happy helps keep you healthy. And when you’re healthy, says Summer, you’re hot. He calls that the “gratitude/attitude connection.”
“Staying Happy, Healthy and Hot” is full of laughs, tears, hopes and fears. “It’s real,” says Summer. “It’s not about looking at life through rose-colored glasses. It’s about a guy who is happy looking at life through bifocals that still get steamed up and sometimes a little ‘teared’ up watching the summer sunshine of his life turn to autumn gold.”
