Correction: GOFTS

Correction:  The acronym for the name of the local group in the make-believe central California city of Golden Oaks, home of Jennie Graves and her family, has been changed to GOFTS. That is because this acronym now stands for Golden Oaks Family Ties Society.

No, this change does not make the acronym for the club's name easier to remember or pronounce. If anything, it is more awkward. However, I decided I liked the revised long version of the club/society name better. It is more descriptive of the objective of the group of women who meet once a month to share presentations on a multitude of disciplines, give advice and moral support to each other in order to -- yes, you guessed it -- strengthen family ties.

Whether it is GOFFS or GOFTS, their families teasingly give them the nickname of goofs or goofy ladies.

Every family needs at least one goofy lady like the women in GOFTS.
