    My Dad and I have a standing date that everytime I come over we do a page together. I love hearing the stories he tells me, especially if it was embarrassing because he gets all red and has a huge smile on his face. It will be something that I will always treasure.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Conversations with My Father and Mother:

      What do you get the man that has everything? Something like this! My dad called me after he received it and said it was the most thoughtful gift he has ever been given. My parents have been divorced my entire life, so I didn't get to spend much time with my dad growing up. Now my father has Lyme disease and its damaging his memory. This book is going to provide us with many amazing conversations and I will be able to hold onto the memories for ever.

            I bought a book for my daughter, daughter-in-laws, niece (sisters daughter) and myself so we could all talk with our mothers. I am a history teacher in middle school and have learned our personal history is being lost by not sharing family tales.
