Editorial Reviews

Review

"As a man, I pity poor John, loyal husband and the object of so much spirited fun. But 'Grow Your Own Dope, Plant a Man' is full of self-deprecating humor as well, and Loretta Griffin's wit and insights give both sexes plenty to laugh about. -- Mike Murray, Pearhouse Productions

"Loretta Griffin is the Erma Bombeck of Western Pennsylvania. I'm sure her fame will spread with this book. It's Loretta and John laughing and living. Reading 'Grow Your Own Dope, Plant a Man' made me feel that I was back home again." -- Candace Austin, Writer, Marketing Agent

I feel that I know a lot about Loretta Griffin and John now that I have read the book Grow Your Own Dope, Plant a Man.
It's funny how men all seem to be alike. My wife always tells me, "You only hear what you want to hear." Just read the chapter, Selective Hearing - It's in the genes to get Lorreta's spin on this. The chapter containing the story about the mouse is also really funny. And what in the hell is "Cattywampus?"
Did Loretta Griffin have a brother while growing up? I doubt it. Then she would know that men will never admit there is something that they cannot fix. If they can't fix it they will hide it somehow.
Although John and I have a lot of dfferences, there are many things about us that are similar. I suppose, related to being a man.
To be fair, I could poke some fun at women. I always wondered why God made women the worse drivers in the world. And my wife checks everything twice or three times before leaving the house, including water faucets, ashtrays, etc, which takes her a half hour. Then, she goes back to recheck sometimes. Is there any hope for men?
My wife snores, I snore, the dog snores. On occason, the dog will leave for the quiet of the living room to sleep when it all gets too noisy in the bedroom.
The book has influenced me to find humor in my life. It's also a great gift idea.

In the book Grow Your Own Dope, Plant a Man, the author takes the reader back in time to a splendid sense of peace and laugh out loud joy in a humerous style of living a simple life with a man, willing to let her poke fun at their everyday experiences. It's a perfect gift for Mother's and Father's day, or to youself if you've ever wondered how marriage looks from the inside. Take it to read on a train ride, like I did.
