Life with a spoonful of humor...

Barbara Bradlyn Morris has a talent for capturing moments of her life in snapshot stories. This collection is filled with nostalgia, a few tears and plenty of laughs. She explores memories of childhood, remembers being out late at night in a field of fireflies and tells stories of canoe trips. I loved the stories about how her mother taught her family recipes and there is quite a poignant moment where you are almost stunned by one sentence. The warm comforting stories lead you through numerous life experiences filled with mishaps, surprises and awakenings. The delightful stories of the Siamese cats are especially cute. Barbara Bradlyn Morris is a woman who has traveled the world and danced in her kitchen. She faces challenge and makes choices that guide her life in interesting and new directions. Memories of yard sales, Christmas trees, dieting and even a funeral in Japan are included in this collection. Through her eyes, we view the world with a little more humor. I think this book is Barbara Bradlyn Morris' best book yet! ~The Rebecca Review

Laugh-out-loud essays for every woman

Women everywhere will glimpse themselves in this warm, funny book of memorable moments throughout the life of Barbara Bradlyn Morris. From capturing the essence of a reunion between two adult women whose lives have taken different paths, to resenting "Mrs. Clean," the neighbor with neat rows in her freezer, Morris has a knack for nailing life experiences with both humor and poignancy. Morris's life has taken her across the world, but she weaves the threads of our common humanity wherever she goes and lets the reader experience the thrills, joys and sorrows in vivid prose. This is a woman who has seen the treacherous waters of Cape Horn, had her first anniversary dinner in a German schloss interrupted by the pathetic wails of her kitten, and pushed past her insecurities to engage in the ceremonial customs of a funeral in Japan. "The Fattest Baby in the Bronx" makes for great bedtime reading and would be a perfect gift for any woman.
