This little book is all about fun, good times, parties and great places to be. Sprinkled in amongst the anecdotes are some true statistics and some reference to popular music as it related to the times when these events took place. Most of what you'll read took place in the late 1970s and early 1980s, though it does follow through straight to the present day. So sit back and relax, and have a good laugh, or maybe a good shake of the head. Take a ride with me "down the shore" while I share some truly fun experiences with you.
Heartbroken by the events of Hurricane Sandy, Trent has pledged to donate 50% of the profit from this book to the ongoing cleanup and rebuilding effort along the Jersey Shore.

This book brings me back to my childhood. I used to take trips to Asbury Park with my parents. I can't have been more than 5 years old. I loved that place! We stayed in a hotel called the Golden Sands. I always had to make sure I rode "Bulgy the whale" in the kiddie ride section. I remember the Mr. Peanut store in the casino and how good it smelled. I remember people walking around with those dog leashes that floated in the air without any dogs on the end. I thought that was hysterical!(Sometimes it's really easy to keep a kid happy) The was a Howard Johnsons on the boardwalk we always went to, every single time. As I got a little older and got a younger brother and sister, we all took trips to a variey of different beaches and shore towns. I could go on forever about the memories I have. One thing I will never forget is how good my Mom was at that "frog pond" game, where you took a big hammer(I'm not sure what else to call it) and tried to get the rubber frog to land on a llily pad. She was so good she used to attract an audience, people would be gathered in a group watching her. She must have been great for business!!
