Seasoned bartender Charlie Simms passes on the abundance of wisdom he has 'grown' during the course of his seventy-one years. With eleven adult children, sixteen grandchildren, and a personal history that has included four wives, he knows all about facing challenges head on and learning to survive. Most of all, he has learned to keep going, despite the inevitable setbacks that arise. He hasn't always been so certain about what's important, though. By staying open to new experiences, he not only found his way, but he also learned to act from the heart. As the wise elder he has become, he shares his philosophy with young people today.
