Eighty-one year old Nat Moyer is a compulsive and fanciful talker, a feisty philosopher, and a troublemaker given to assuming personalities. His daily companion on a bench in New York's Central Park is Midge Carter, a half-blind apartment house superintendent. Midge's approach to life is realistic and down-to-earth, making him the perfect foil for Nat. With vaudevillian flair, these appealing oldsters outrageously take on the world and its multiple threats--drug dealers and muggers, enlightened children, forced retirement, and the spector of the old folks' home
