About the Book The humourous and whimsical vignettes in this collection were published in a number of newspapers, including the Montreal Gazette, Toronto Globe and Mail and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Some have been reprinted in anthologies, some have been incorporated into textbooks and training manuals, and one was quoted in the Canadian Parliament, leading to a government protest which dissuaded the United States from dumping radioactive waste materials in Northern Vermont by the Canadian border. Many of the vignettes are about the adventures, problems and challenges of raising a family of five, four girls and a boy, to presumed maturity.
