"Middie's Memoirs" is a glimpse at the life of Arthur Warner Middleton, born in San Francisco, California, in 1923. The first section includes heartfelt stories, written by Arthur after reviewing and reminiscing about 1930-1945 entries in his mother's "Ledger Book,” a chronicle of the family’s expenses and other details. The second section contains several tales about Arthur’s family, friends and most memorable experiences. Finally, “Post-1945 Insights by Daughter Anne," takes the reader from where Arthur left off in 1945 to the present. A common thread in past and current stories is Arthur’s wife, Derry, the neighborhood girl to whom he was engaged for one night in 1944 -- and who he later married in 1993. They are now both 85.
