This book is either a desperate cry for help or a set of the funniest slices of life you will read this year. Odenthal takes an adventure we all relate to and full-throttles it down the wrong track every time—and we know how hard it is to avert your eyes from a train wreck. That is just how this man's life goes, and, conveniently, how a Chimney Fishing Tale is born.

Read this current collection of fourteen stories, which shed some light on how the author became a black-belt chimney fishing ninja and established his street-cred. Each chimney fishing tale maps a milestone in life. Whether it is a boy's first brush with love in "Fourth Grade Romeo," a father and son's first official ride down 'Ol Rickety in "The Roller Coaster—A Rite of Passage," or a fishing trip went awry in "Fishing the Trout Farm," you will follow unique adventures. You might just catch a glimpse of yourself along the way. Great fun for readers of all ages!

Included in this collection are "Chimney Fishing in the Rockies," "Tenacious Monkey Bites," "Fourth Grade Romeo," "A Pipe Smokin' Mind," "The Wal-Mart Trip," "Fishing the Trout Farm," "The Roller Coaster," "Modest Crews and other Sports Trivia," "Zero Three November," "We Don't Darn Socks," "Best 10-Minute Hat," "Driving Dainty," "When the Going Gets Tough," "But We ARE Party People." These accounts of things that almost went right are sure to leave you laughing—and thankful you maintained a safe distance from this family.
