More About This Book

Overview

Jim Powell writes funny and warm tales about growing up in Chandler, Texas, in the 1940s, offering his readers many chuckles. His first book, Feed Sack Fashions and Other Childhood Memories, introduced readers to entertaining anecdotes about a slower and simpler time.

Them's Funny Looking Catfish and More Childhood Memories, his second book, presents over 50 more delightful tales including, "Them's Funny Looking Catfish," "The Baby Sitting Bed," "Aunt Ruby's Chevy," "Sister Phoebe," and "Painting Chickens." He also takes us on an unusual adventure to Big D's Farmers Market, introduces us to gill net fishing, and guarantees a "syrup-sopping" good time.

The lively and warm nostalgic stories Powell tells in his books bring back fond memories that appeal to many generations. Be sure to visit online at www.feedsackfashions.com to contact the author, to order books, or to receive information on speaking engagements and other upcoming books.

Jim S. Powell grew up to be a loving husband, doting father and faithful employee with Brookshire Grocery Company in Tyler, Texas, last serving as Senior Vice President-Advertising. Jim is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, receiving a Bachelor of Journalism degree in 1958. He received a Master of Arts degree from East Texas State University in Commerce, Texas. Some accounts of the author's childhood memories have been published in the Bullard Banner and The Chandler Statesman, two local East Texas weekly newspapers. Today, he and his wife Ann live in Tyler and enjoy their two daughters and one grandchild, Callie, for whom Jim's first book, Feed Sack Fashions, was originally written. They can often be found hunting bargains in antique shops, sipping lemonade at their cabin on weekends, or serving in their local church.
