Old People is a series of related stories about old people, their children and their contemporaries. It is based upon the author’s observations of old people throughout his life and the residents of the retirement home where he lives. The stories follow the lives and some deaths of some residents of Colorado. With few exceptions most of the old people came from other places because of work transfers, to relocate their businesses, or to retire. As the people in the story age, they move to retirement homes. The fictional one in these stories is The Rest Place. Many of the stories are about the people living there and their interactions with each other.
