Publisher's Summary

As Tina is ironing, she questions things and then her mind wonders with each item she irons.

What ever happened to perma-press? Tina asks herself as she is ironing a linen pair of capris, and is having difficulty getting the wrinkles out. She goes through the history of fabrics, from perma-press, to wrinkle free, to natural fibers, to those that today need ironing, just when life should be simpler.

As Tina is ironing her husband's dress shirt, she questions why her husband is steadfast on wearing a business suit with a dress shirt and tie in his stock broker business. She also reflects on what a clean-cut person he is, and how everything has to be in order, and when things get out of order, that it drives him crazy. Speaking of crazy...

As Tina irons a dress she wore to a party she attended with her husband, she reflects on the good times they used to have together and wondered what happened between them.

    "Excellent"

    I didn't want this story to end. Excellent story line and Larkin does a great job on setting the mode and pace. Ms. Hockert, this should be a play on stage. I truly enjoyed this book.
