Dottie Lamm's vibrant, engaged, and passionate personality shines through in this third collection drawn from her popular newspaper columns, covering a span of 25 years. For this volume, she has specifically chosen those essays that elicited emotional, often deeply personal responses from her audience. The result is a thought-provoking compilation of pieces that will pull at heartstrings and elicit "Aha " moments for readers old and new.Lamm was the first lady of Colorado for more than a decade (from 1975 to 1987), and she ran as Colorado's Democratic candidate for the US Senate in 1998. In these pages, she shares insights stemming from the myriad roles she has fulfilled over her lifetime, not only as a political spouse and a politician in her own right but also and especially as a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, feminist, and friend. Throughout this book, she tackles tough issues and tender realities-from marriage and children to aging and ethics-with candor and compassion, frequently offering her observations with an endearing, self-effacing humor. As former Governor Dick Lamm, her husband of 57 years, says,
"This book will give you an insight into the real Dottie Lamm, the person I have always loved but have now come to know in a deeper way."

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**
