it was amazing
bookshelves: memoir-celebrity, uplit

The book is perfect for anyone who requests something to read that is good-hearted and funny as heck. Peggy Rowe (Mike Rowe's of Dirty Jobs 82-year-old mother) has written a wonderful collection of essays about her life, marriage, raising kids, and getting older that is both humorous and poignant. Someone said she is today's Erma Bombeck and I got that flavor but she definitely has her own voice. By the time you finish this, you'll want Peggy and John to be your mom and dad.

Get a copy if you are looking for an uplifting read during these tough times.

This is a good companion to Mike Rowe's The Way I Heard It and a good read for Erma Bomback fans.
