Although, I wasn’t born until 1982, I was born and raised in Flyover Country. So, even though my era of growth was unique to this book, this book was still able to open my senses and take me back in time. Best yet, it gave me sight to much that existed before I was a speck in my father’s eye.
For those of you reading this book who are from Mainland, USA (the land of the tourist), this book will capture your soul, captivate your senses, and expand your mind to what life was like for Brian Frobase and many others in his time. Moreover, it will give you a glance of what it was like for me growing up in my father and mother’s garden.
In current times, there is seemingly strife between generations, with titles being handed out effortlessly. Titles such as: Baby Boomers, The Millennials, and Generation X, Y, and Z. This gap arises out of lack of understanding to hardships, sacrifices, and simplicity that the Baby Boomers experienced, and ultimately that benefitted our generation that follows. I believe when the generations of today’s society reads this book, it will be eye-opening for all and begin to bridge the gap.
I encourage you to grab a cup-of-joe, dress in your oversized, cozy, only-the-house-can-see sweats, and settle in. I assure you, this book is like grandma’s comfort food—you know, the kind that sticks to your ribs—as it sticks to your heart for years to follow.
