About the Book

Almost all the stories for this book are based on real-life incidents. In the children’s stories section, a large number of stories are the direct result of what my children asked me when they were growing up and my responses. Some of the stories are based on the questions that our friends’ kids asked. One story is based on my daughter’s friend’s child. All the pet stories are based on my/our pets in recent years. I’ve always had pets—some very unusual. Most of the photos are from my family archive—where not otherwise specified and source acknowledged. I hope you enjoy the stories and accept them in the spirit in which I offer them to you.
