Let me take you on a trip back to a simpler time and place. The time was the 1940s and the place was a little town in Vermont called Springfield. Although war was raging in Europe and Japan, and the country was still in the Great Depression, my sister and I were too busy playing and getting each other in trouble to pay any attention to such things. If you've forgotten, or never knew, what it was like to be raised in a stable, loving family with parents who knew how to parent, you'll enjoy reading this book. Go back before television, computers, cell phones, faxes and DVDs, to a time when people knew their neighbors, doors could be kept unlocked, and you actually had to get up and walk across the room to change the radio station.

Bumps Along the Way is a lighthearted look at a road trip across the country. Can two cranky seniors manage being together in a small car for six long weeks? It would take a miracle, since they normally don't travel well together even on short trips. Thankfully, God is still in the miracle business.
This book is for people who like to travel, who are old enough to remember back when, and for people who believe that God watches out for us no matter what dumb thing we humans may do.
If you have ever traveled with a spouse and dealt with the problem of one person driving and one person navigating, and it didn't turn out well, then you will relate to this book.
For those of you who have encountered a few bumps along the road of life, congratulations, for that's what makes the trip memorable.
Get in and hang on while two senior citizens take you on an unforgettable road trip across the country.
