The focus of her book includes memories of a summer spent in Frankfort when she was 16 years old and spotlights a lifetime friendship with Linda Gibson Benge, her first childhood friend as she spent time going to various functions and events as she chronicles some of her newfound adventures during her teenage years before entering the world of show business. Trust me, you'll be amazed by the remarkable photo gallery she put together from her personal collection as you will keep revisiting the exciting moments of her acting career. A TRUE GEM for sure!

Misty is best known for being a member of "The Kornfield Friends" on the weekly syndicated series "Hee Haw" as she was fortunate to work with the show's co-hosts, the late GREAT Roy Clark and Buck Owens. Other memorable roles include guest appearances on "Happy Days" "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island" but we will also focus attention on her short-lived 1975 ABC series "When Things Were Rotten" where she portrayed Maid Marion alongside Dick Gautier who starred as Robin Hood. This Mel Brooks series also featured a terrific ensemble cast that graced the prime-time TV airwaves and I recommend that you include the DVD to your entertainment library as this comedy truly lives up to entertainment at it's BEST. How ironic! This past Tuesday, Mel celebrated his 96th birthday! May God bless him each and every day.
