I have the book ” Story of my Life” and I love it. Even if I do not do the book about my wonderful Fifties memories, my decedents will know my life. It makes putting your life together so easy and helps bring back memories. I “highly” recommend this book. It is like a paint by number, just fill in the blanks.
