From the day the Rowes said, “I do,” Peggy’s sense of humor went into action. It was a perfect match for John’s minimalist quirks. From thoughts of wearing headlamps in the house to save energy, to squeezing out the last drop of toothpaste with a workbench vise, Peggy learned to pick her battles and celebrate the hilarity in each situation. When the oldest of three sons, Mike, began a career in show business, Peggy was his most exuberant fan. She baked Christmas cookies for Mike to take to Joan Rivers and wrote fan letters under faux names she mailed to his producers. Retirement brought new adventures for Peggy and John—a lightning strike in their condo, an elderly friend eating marijuana leaves, and a foray into the world of commercials. You’ll join the Rowes as they advertise Viva paper towels, Lee jeans, Felpro gaskets, and more. Peggy’s stories relive details that intrigue and entertain. If you want a bigger, funnier take on the Rowe family, About Your Father delivers.
