Beacon staff Writer Publishes Book
January 08, 2008
By Betty B. Chandler
The Valley Beautiful Beacon
If you’ve read her columns, then you’ll know why we are pleased to review Leeuna Foster’s first published work. She’s fun to be around, fun to work with, and she exudes happiness wherever she goes.
In her book entitled, “My Mind Wandered – And It Never Came Back,” Leeuna covers every facet of life with humor, from “Décor-Hum (the art of ho-hum decorating),” to “Hubby Ain’t A Hound Dog (he’s not that easily trained.)” Leeuna has this magical way of turning even the worst and most bizarre events into something that we can all relate to and laugh about.
An “unpublished” example occurred just before Christmas when she got tangled up with her Labrador Retriever. I’m not sure if they were racing in the living room, or just what was going on at the time, but Leeuna got tripped up and wound up with 4 stitches and a cracked bone in her foot. Without missing a beat, she told me that if she had only known ahead of time that she’d be going to the hospital, she’d have taken time to shave her legs. Leeuna does a lot of her columns from home, and she wrote her book from her own home. Give her a corner and a computer, and she becomes a humorist extraordinaire.
This is a book that guarantees laughter to everyone. We’ve had more positive comments about Leeuna’s column in The Beacon than we have about any other standing column we run. Our readers think she’s a hoot. They wait from week to week to see what she’s gotten herself into next.
We would recommend this book as a good dose of humor for anyone who is the slightest bit out of sorts, or perhaps those who are homebound and need a little laughter in their lives. And, we’re proud to say that Leeuna is a writer for The Beacon. She keeps our spirits high. All proceeds from her book will be going to America’s Second Harvest Food Bank.
“My favorite quote is one by E. E. Cummings”, Leeuna said. “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter’. Over the years I have found this to be true and I strive to see that no day is wasted.” However, while I love to laugh and make others laugh, there’s nothing funny about hunger. There is no humor in the fact that over 25 million people in this country have to choose whether to eat or pay their utilities, whether to pay their mortgage or feed their children. There’s no humor in an elderly person doing without food in order to afford their medication,” the humor columnist said. “It is my prayer that through the sale of this book, a few less families will have to make this choice.”
That’s The Beacon’s hope, as well. “My Mind Wandered – And It Never Came Back” may be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce and The Valley Beautiful Beacon for $11.95 per copy. Remember – it all goes to America’s Second Harvest Food Bank.
I Love Leeuna...

The Horace J. Digby Report on A3Radio.com ~ Live from Ann Arbor, Michigan
"I Love Leeuna . . . Every body's got them . . . but when Leeuna Foster starts worrying about life's little problems, she'll make you laugh. Leeuna is turning her idiosyncrasies into a successful writing career, one by one. Whether it's dealing with her "Dave Barry addiction," or just sharing the secrets of "training a new hubby," Leeuna's delightful way of worrying about her daily cares, makes me laugh at my own. She'll do the same for you. Leeuna Foster is one of the truly original and funny writers I've found. It's time for you to discover her too."
