For over twenty-eight years, this husband and wife team worked together as founders/co-owners of many small business ventures. Also, for over three years to document John's stories. He told them as Sheri typed, bringing them closer together and allowing Sheri to know more of what he did during his trips away.
The stories in their book are the real-life trip experiences that John remembers most vividly. Documented lovingly by Sheri, it is a book that is meant for sharing. Not only with you, dear reader, but with generations to come.
