Overview

Poetry and knee-slapping humor under the same Cover? Yes, and by the same author. Imagine sitting around a fireplace or pot bellied stove in the wintertime, perhaps on a cold drizzly day, listening to old-timers match stories and tales for the sake of entertainment and trying to out-do one another.

Overview

Poetry and knee-slapping humor under the same Cover? Yes, and by the same author. Imagine sitting around a fireplace or pot bellied stove in the wintertime, perhaps on a cold drizzly day, listening to old-timers match stories and tales for the sake of entertainment and trying to out-do one another. "Hometown Tales, Short and Tall" is a collection of stories and tales that have been gathered from just such occasions. So long as spirits are lifted and the tasks of the day tarry not too long in the doing, no harm is done. And, they provide a warm reflection of the "good old days". When you think of it, using humor in pleasant company to set the cares of the world aside for a moment is somewhat therapeutic, as is the reading of "Good Thoughts Shared".

    Highly recommended - you must check it out!

    Nostalgic revisits of childhood memories, connections with nature, and communion in spirit....written in melodic rhyme and tranquil cadence...reads like skating on winter's pond, or waltzing in moonlight's glow!
