In this companion book to Things Were Going Fine … Till We Hit the Rapids she recounts her true-life adventures, reprising a cast of characters who begin with good intentions, but usually encounter wildly funny calamities.

We become one with the pie, while copiously, yet lovingly, cramming bites into our mouths. It’s a veritable “love-in!” An abundance of love can bring peace of mind and soul. Perhaps, a more appropriate name for an award would be the Nobel Piece (of pie) Prize!
