Charmed. Utterly and thoroughly charmed is how I would describe how I feel after reading Pluggers. It somehow manages to capture bits and pieces of my own childhood ...
Up until a few years ago, I was still taping shows! I only stopped because they stopped making VHS tapes. True story.
This is my parents to a T. To this day, I will choose to pick up pizza rather than have it delivered.

Pluggers isn't just about the world I grew up in, but the one I imagine my parents and grandparents enjoyed. It perfectly captures the little things in life that we end up remembering the most. Kurt Vonnegut said, "Enjoy the little things in life because one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things." I think Mr. Vonnegut would have liked Pluggers!
