    I know the girls are blown away to think that there every day lives would be of so much interest to women across america. but to those of us that nver had tight knit friends for life, thank you. although, you showed me what I am missing. I am a twin and have always had my sister, than married at 17 and have since had my husband. I am sending the book to a friend back in Texas that lives for her friends and I can see her making the slippers as well. I went on line and printed directions for her. I now feel like I have 10 new friends. Blessings and good health to all of you and your families. Thank you for sharing and for jeffery for writting.

    Your story is so awesome and I am so jealous that I don’t have a group of childhood friends such as yours. I too am from the midwest and grew up in the very same time period as you all did. Your stories and memories did hit close to home and made me laugh and smile when remembering similar happenings in my childhood and teen years. I do have many friends from the last 47 years from different walks of life, and I am grateful for every one of them. But to have a large group such as yours with such a shared history is truly a blessing. Thank you so much for sharing your special story and God bless you all!
