Wrinkly Bits

Bits of Time  Now Available!

In the style of Erma Bombeck and Paul Harvey, Gail Cushman reveals her take on life as a senior citizen, growing old with dignity, frustration, and enthusiasm. She unfolds the life journeys of the forty million Americans with graying hair and wrinkly skin who live and love among us.

Cushman says they are stories of nothing, yet it is the nothingness that makes these stories glow.

What Readers Are Saying

Meet Gail

Gail Cushman’s husband often teased that she had two useless degrees, a B.S. and M.A., both in Sociology, but he was wrong. Those degrees made Cushman a master of people-watching and now, with over twenty cruises behind her, she has observed more senior hijinks than she could possibly remember. A former Marine Corps officer and composition teacher, she now shares that mischief with her readers by writing a bi-weekly blog “Wrinkly Bits” here on gailcushman.com.  Cushman’s dream is to remind all of us that age is only a number and wrinkles equate wisdom. She is a native Idahoan with two grown children and four teenaged grandchildren, two in Idaho and two in Alaska.
