thekatebook blog exists only because of my sister Kate and a bevy of other relatives (that I shall refer to from here on out as “Bevvies ” at family parties ). No really, I was trying to knock together some of my favorite family stories after my Dad had passed away and I found myself repeatedly going back to my sister Kate’s great advice or wisdom. They all have it …my brother Will my sisters Maureen, Anne, Marg, Mary Ellen and the sharpest tack in our shed Therese whose has been known to cut her lips on a conversation, (at least a really juicy good one!).
Anyway Kate called one day and was a little blue, so I told her about this book I’d been working on and how instead of it being stories about Daddy it had morphed into a book basically about family stories or real life experiences she had shared with me. I said at that point that I really needed to finish it up so that she could when blue just go over and open her “Katebook” up and laugh. So here it is missing it’s hard covers and hoping she’ll and all the family will keep telling me more and more wonderful funny stories.
