A friend sent me this book about a year ago and I just now go to reading it. Mostly because it was lost behind my entertainment center! :( Her mother had found it after searching a while, because she had read it a long time ago and it reminded her of my family. And was she right! I ended up reading it in one night. I laughed out loud so many times, and Gary would ask me what it said, and when I would read it to him, he laughed, too. It was like our life had been lived by someone else 40 years ago.
Apparently there was a Reader's Digest article and Life Magazine photoshoot done of the family. I'm going to look for them. It would be very neat to see the family and read how things turned out.
