This book is primarily because of my granddaughters’ insistence that I write what they found to be amusing and interesting stories of my life. Family and friends who proofread for me reported back that it was a ‘good read.’
It is all true and covers the broad range of experiences of my life since early childhood. As I worked on it, other family members asked that I include stories about them or others.
I have this idea that, someday far into the future, an anthropologist will come across this tome and muse “Hmmm! This is some interesting information about life in the United States during the later twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.”
