The book spans childhood memories of the quiet fifties, the societal changes of the sixties, the humor of everyday events, and the peaks and valleys of growing older. I have attempted to chronicle the impact place and family have on each of us, especially those who have chosen to make our hometown our permanent place of residence. Hopefully each reader wil find something of value, a few laughs, and a new perspective on life in small town America.
