Like most biographies I am only interested in the childhood and formative years so this dragged on as I got toward the end. However, since she is from my hometown of Lima, it proved really interesting in the parts that referred to that. If you are a fan of true comedy...this is worth a look.

Ellie Revert You're from Lima? Would that be Lima Ohio?? I'm from Youngstown and the guy I came close to marrying ended up in Lima Ohio. The gal that my husband came close to marrying ended up in Toledo, Ohio. Brent and I went far away, first to Conn. and then to the great Pacific NW.

Amanda Ishtayeh WOW! Small world...yes it is Lima, Ohio. My parents live there still. Glad you guys got "out". Tee Hee. Seriously there is not much in Lima at all.
