About the Book
This is a fresh collection of Heather's memoirs, a potpourri of 55 true tales that keep you chuckling as she relates her own personal experiences as well as that of family members and acquaintances. Except for the "Travel Tales", the story settings are all in Ontario. You can open the book anywhere and read as many of these short stories as time allows, a type of book that busy people especially like. You will read about such things as unexpected happenings while travelling, encounters with the departed, fouled wedding plans, water-skiing gone awry, etc., as well as reliving a bit of Expo'67 and the Havelock Bank Robbery of 1962. You will even become acquainted with morels and spoonerisms! In addition, Heather has included in this book, a chapter of insightful, reflective stories, all based on her life of sixty-plus years. As in her other books, a few pictures here and there, adds to the interest. The colourful, autumn scene on the cover is taken at Whiteduck Lake, Combermere, Ontario.
