  1. I’m glad you invited me to share some memories, Ruthi. That’s just what I did, here, and I chose them to characterize the times we Boomers grew up in. I’ve had people from around the country tell me that it puts them in mind of their own growing up, even if it was in far different circumstances, so I think I got it right. Thanks so much for your appreciation.

    • I do believe your readers are correct. While reading your collection of childhood stories I certainly trekked back in time in my mind to my own youth. Although our growing up years may have been somewhat different, we share that same ideal of memorializing our memories.

      It is always a pleasure to have the author of a book I read to make an appearance on my published review. Thank you for taking the time to comment, Chris.

  2. What a wonderful review. You are right on it when you said change is inevitable. I wish more people would understand this. That with change we grow as a whole.

    • Yes, Sandy, when we embrace change we do grow better as a whole. Although sometimes, some things might have been better before the changes.

  3. A wonderful review Ruth, I’ll have to add this to my list, it sounds like a great read. I’m always thinking back to those good old days, I think all generations take the time to think back. Thanks

    • Thank you, Sam. I think the older I get the more I look back. But of course, when we’re young all we do is look forward!

  4. I wonder what draws us to look back to the past so often. Doesn’t every generation do it? This book sounds so good too. It would be an interesting contrast to how things are today for kids. On to my list it goes. Thanks!

    • Yes, Merry, we all revisit our past. I think as we hustle and bustle our way through life we yearn for a simpler time, such as that of our youth. Advancement in age, as well as technology, have us wanting to skip a rope to the wondrous rhythm of birdsong… something we adults generally no longer do as we rush through our everyday living.

  5. Excellent work Ruth. Good and interesting story, makes me want the book. But I’ll hold off for a little while, as I’m bookmarking this to return when I’m ready to buy.

    • Nancy, there is not a doubt in my mind that you would enjoy Chris’ storytelling talent. He is a talented writer.
