his entire life in the shipyard. I left Minnesota 25 years ago. A catastrophic injury three years
ago brought us back into Minnesota as we traveled to Mayo Clinic monthly to get repaired. We are near
retirement age now and have decided to move back to Minnesota, and to make Duluth our permanent home.
I ordered this book several months ago. It was very thoughtful and touching to read. I ordered copies for
both of our sons. I thoroughly enjoyed each of the essays and derived much from having read them.
I came from a time period, and an area of the country, where real things still matter and the "little pleasures
in life" are what are most enjoyable. I loved this book. It did good for my soul.

It was also interesting because we spent 3 years in Duluth at summer school and experienced many of the same things.
Mainly I found Barton very witty and he made me look at things in a different way than I usually would. I read two stories
each night until I finished the book. It was a perfect book to end the day with.
