A friend recomended I read these...At first I thought she was crazy...these books from the 90's. Realy....But about 10 pages into book #1 i was laughing so hard I thought I would die! I am now on book #9 and still laughing. I do recomend you read them in order as there are referances to previous characters and a bit of a story line that carries from book to book.
