Great read. Some amusing tales punctuated with both heart warming and heart wrenching. I really appreciated that the short stories were brief enough that I could sneak reading them in between child drama. It gave me a chance to live a little vicariously through someone else's life. This is what I read for. To escape my own personal problems for just a little while. Reading this book definitely succeeded in allowing me to do that.

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I absolutely enjoyed this book! A memoir about lessons both learned and not necessarily learned, but most importantly about the wonderful journey life is when one takes the time to live in the moment and also reflect on what has passed. A wonderful read. ( )

I found the author's personal essays to be incredibly funny. The author has definitely lived a full life, and has a lot of stories to share. ( )

This is a unique but enjoyable memoir of a life well lived. Whether about the grind of daily life, life’s small (and big) events and pitfalls, raising children or whatever else comes your way, the author has provided meaningful vignettes that describe them well, tough the humorous side of every reader, and keep the reader moving along in anticipation of more. The book moves long at a wonderful pace, keeping the reader enthralled and waiting for what waits around the next “corner”. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this wonderful compilation about the author’s life. It grabbed me from the get-go and kept my interest until the very end. This is the book you will want to read if friends, family and love are important to you, if you ever wonder whether your life with all its bumps and smooth expanses is unlike or like others’. I was and still am amazed at just how the author has managed to weave these tales and stories around events that, for the most part, are really just ordinary day events and occurrences. This is a great book to read while resting or relaxing after a long day or while enjoying a leisurely time off from the everyday things that consume our lives and time. I received this from Library Thing to read and review. ( )
