Most often those of us that record youthful memories (with much embellishment) are dreamers at heart. Josh is a little boy from the South. He is loveable and mischievous as all little boys are. These stories follow his adventures, from his point of view, as he grows from a little boy to a teenager. His rural escapades with his friends, enemies, and family are a mixture of my own as well as those of my thirty years as a classroom teacher. These memories are enriched with the blessings of an extended family, a mother with focused ideals and goals and a father with a youthful outlook on life. This has been a project that has been in progress for many years, and I am glad to fi nally bring you Josh's stories. Please enjoy and giggle and most of all remember, there is always a mischievous little child lurking deep within your soul.
