Quoting Betty Jane Kimpton, 84 years of age, "There is so much to live for and to be thankful for without looking on the dark side of life and the many ailments that come in our senior years." She is a person who enjoys making humor out of most situations and finds any subject to be a topic on which to pen a poem. Any word or subject is bait for one so apt to write poetry. It is with this thought in mind that this book has been written with the hope that others may enjoy fictional situations that can occur in any residence such as a retirement home or elsewhere. Her past vocations have been that of a grade school student writing poetry, a high school student writing drama that was acted out there, composing both poetry and music as the situations came up, a nurse, a wife and mother of three sons, a secretary, a "you name it" as she calls it. When asked what her vocation is now, she replies, " I am a Household Executive!"

"OH, BY THE WAY . . . . . . . . . " is a whimsical anecdote of life in a retirement community called a "home". Narration has been made of various incidents taking place there, both humorous and serious. This has been interspersed with poetry written by the author and Christian quips that enhance the rendition of life as it has been, is and that which is to come.
