Beaded Tail Liked "My Funny Dad, Harry"

"My Funny Dad, Harry" is a wonderful tribute to Karen's dad. She tells endearing stories about her dad in such a way that you feel the emotions ranging from happiness to sadness and everything in between. Harry's love for his cats shines through as does his love for woodworking and fixing things. Harry may have had his own quirks and his own way of doing things but yet I know people that do so many similar things that I could relate to what Karen was going through and feel her frustrations at times. This is such a heart warming book and the stories are written so you feel like you are witnessing them firsthand. I came away with an understanding of aging that I didn't have before and certainly have an appreciation for how everyone has their own unique way of doing things - such as turning junkmail into scratch paper or using orange juice cartons for storage! This book is a wonderful read so be sure to go to order a copy or two!
