Instead I have decided to work on the perfect plan, from my perspective of course. I remember it as a phrase my fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Conroy used to say, If I had my druthers. But then who else’s perspective could I write from? If America worked the way it is supposed to work, then my plan, my opinion, should count just as much as anybody else’s. The fact is that if I had gazillions of dollars, then my opinion would count for something significant. It should be enough that I am a citizen, resident of the county Burleigh, the state North Dakota, of these United. Well I do. Read my druthers, then start your own. The world will be a better place if you do.

I had done two book shows in college. I didn't do the lead in that one because the producer said, "Well Peter, you had the lead last year".

I was told that when he called Jean Dalrymple the producer of NYCC, she said she new my work and I was wrong for the part of Tommy and he said no you don't know his work and finally he said and I quote, "Audition Peter, and if you like him - hire him. If you don't like or want him, go out of the room and throw up".

Great account of a wonderful woman's life. The complexity and simplicity of it. I knew her. She played a very important role in my life during my teenage years, early twenties and in my forties. So much of the book I have a personal connection to. Over the years, I would talk to Amanda and I visited her when she lived in Houston and in San Diego. I dearly loved her and so did my dad. He is almost 90 and has fond memories of her. Actually, we were just talking about how Amanda loved everyone. She was determined to be an asset in the lives of others. Her children learned valuables lessons from their mother. Unconditional love, selflessness, being positive and seeing the best in a given situation. She told me once "Nita, if you think you will ever regret doing something, then perhaps you shouldn't do it. She was wise, intentional and expressed herself honestly. I can see her big, bright and genuine smile. Some folks smile, but you can tell that it is false. Amanda's smile was true and pure. She had a heart of gold. I am blessed to be counted among those whose life she touched. All the best to you Terri, Cathy and Bengie

This book is an interesting read and...
apparently the author is the step sister in law of Rick Springfield. She never mentions it specifically and calls the family Springthorpe but Rick's wife's father married the author's mother.
