Shelves: humor
Mohr gives a day by day account of life in Minnesota, from incidents in the life of "Harold Mire" and family, to sightings of Minnesota Big Foot, who is usually bemused by the activities of the humans around him. Three-hundred sixty six entries, ranging from a few sentences to a page or more, full of gentle humor--a delightful read.

It's been a very long time since I first read this book, but I still giggle every time I think of how Big Foot kept popping up. And, I truly believe every town needs a Bigger Hammer Hardware. Just really delightful "everytown" humor.
