In this memoir, Kimmel introduces the characters of her own family: Her mother who spends all her time on the couch reading; her father who is an obsessive camping packer, proclaimed non-church goer, and gambler; her older sister, Melinda who tolerates Zippy and convinces Zippy that she is adopted from gypsies; and her handsome, quiet, intense, and much older brother, Daniel, whom Zippy idolizes. She tells of her run ins with neighbors such as Doc who owns the grocery store and is married to Zippy's teacher; Edythe, the elderly woman who seems to have it in for Zippy; and the next door neighbor who wants to poison the family dogs. Zippy's friends from school include Julia, who lets Zippy do the talking for her; Dana who likes to fight with Zippy until Dana suddenly disappears never to be seen again; Polly who fascinates Zippy because her brother is a murderer; and Sissy who wants to save her soul. Her various animal adventures include rescuing her cat, PeeDink, from the bully Peter next door, saving a baby pig from the runt pile, and raising her pet chicken, Speckles (later a meal). Kimmel describes her exploits and humor from her own life as a young girl with an active imagination living in the slow-paced and familiarity of a small town in the Midwest.
Compatible with several infant car seats through an optional adapter, the Zippy Light is not only easy to transport and a space-saver in your vehicle, but allows you to move your sleeping baby from the car to the stroller without waking. The Zippy Light also stands on its own for simple, hassle-free storage.
Getting outdoors or on the move with a baby has never been easier thanks to the Zippy Light by Inglesina. Without the burden of heavy gear, less than stellar maneuverability, and little to no storage space, long days at the park or shopping and dining out on the town are all fair game for parents with small children.
Get back to the simplicity of what summer is all about this year. Quit over-planning, over-scheduling and over-extending everyone from the baby in the family to yourself. In this modern era, we tend to move as fast as our social media newsfeeds, never really stopping to enjoy the moment. As parents we are always so busy planning and worrying that we forget to engage, leaving us feeling guilty and left behind as our children grow up ever so fast. Make a conscious effort this year to spend a quality summer focusing on family, feeding the soul, and introducing baby to all the wonders out and about in this big, beautiful world.

Bucciarati can even create zippers that cut through the entirety of objects, allowing him to dismantle them. With this ability, he can separate enemies into multiple pieces and even perform a cutting attack by detaching something and then canceling the zipper. How harmful the detachment is portrayed inconsistently. When Mario Zucchero's head was removed, he was kept alive, but on the other hand, when Bucciarati himself sectioned parts of his own body into pieces, blood and oxygen could not circulate through the rest of his body as a result, slowly killing him as if his parts were actually cut off from each other. It's possible that Bucciarati has some amount of control of the damage caused by this ability, as he later sectioned Pesci in a similar way with an immediately lethal effect. 153554b96e
