This book is a collection of humor/human interest columns written for a suburban newspaper over a ten-year period in the Fort Worth TX area. Ten years of a column each week makes --- uh - a lot of columns. This is the only job I ever had where I was paid, essentially, to have fun.

She is an omnivorous reader "reading almost anything," she says, and watching the Discovery and History Channels.
