Life's Little Stories and The Colored Glasses
by Tommy Papantonio

Prepare yourself to have fun! Yes, fun. Life's Little Stories and The Colored Glasses is a whimsical combination of people wearing Tommy Papantonio's collection of colored glasses from the dollare store and short stories he wrote from experiences he had in life from childhood to the present. The pictures are of smiling faces of people from all walks of life...real estate brokers, a waiter, graphic artists, and accountant, a make up artist, bartenders, a used car salesperson, a name it. All these people have one thing in common. They all wanted to wear Tommy's colored glasses.

The stories were born after Tommy retired and started writing. Each story ends with a life lesson learned.

While the stories and the pictures have nothing in common, they work together to create this delightful little book. So, prepare yourself to have fun looking at the pictures and reading the little stories.

Tommy Papantonio worked in the fashion industry for over 30 years. He retired at the age of 56 and moved to Hawaii with his partner for six months. With lots of time on his hands, he started to write. He also became a "snowbird" living in Wilton Manors, Florida during the winter and on Fire Island, New York in the summer. He's always looking for a project. He renovated a mid century house, visited Puerto Rico, Tokyo, Cambodia, Paris, Madrid and Singapore, went on several cruises, sang karaoke, and wrote a book! His sense of humor shines through the pages of Life's Little Stories and The Colored Glasses.
