We all know that the kids go back to school in September, but who knew that September is Healthy Aging Month among many other month long celebrations?  I had no clue, but I have to admit that I'm aging.  We have a number of books that may help us live longer and healthier if we follow the advice.  Most are found in the 612 & 613 areas, but here are a few I think are particularly helpful.

First, let's start with comedy because we all could use a good laugh!
