Her father taught her there are very few situations in life that we really and truly cannot change, and it is up to us to figure out how to either make fun OUT of them - or make fun OF them. And fortunately for the rest of us, Brown is well equipped for both. Including the exploits of the Queen contingent and her family, she delivers tidbits like:
- Thinking or talking about watermelon can save any negative situation.
- If you get drunk in Scotland, you can't have your cow with you.
- When sanity and reason fail, you can always cheerfully resort to ridicule.
- Denial means that every situation is perfectly perfect.
As always, an SPQ book is good for what ails ya. I laughed, and yes, I cried. Sometimes from laughing so hard, and at the end, from feeling the grief that Ms. Browne has felt at the loss of her dear mama.
I've read every book in this series, and I highly recommend them. There just really isn't anything else I can say other than read them for yourself. Funny, touching, thought-provoking, and always filled with at least one mouth-watering recipe.
In fact, now that I think about it, I find myself wanting something sweet. And something salty. And just generally yummy. Thanks Jill!
