Dizzy's joie de vivre
Dizzy is an exuberant and fearless lady, an eighty-year-old “free spirit” who likes to help people and share her love of life with them. While looking for her missing cat, she meets a homeless man half her age, and they strike up a friendship. They go on a trip together in her newly acquired car—despite her children's warnings—and have some adventures (good and bad). Then Dizzy goes to France as a caretaker for a young American boy and has other exploits, sometimes comical.
All along, she is wondering who took care of her runaway cat in her absence. The mystery is finally solved and Dizzy's life takes a sharp turn for new adventures.
