If humour is the best medicine, as they say, little book is worth a whole hospital full of doctors, here are a couple of exerts taken at random:
25: Shooting Accident
‘I lost my husband in a shooting accident.’
‘He attacked me with a knife and I accidently shot him!’
100: Sweet Tooth:
'How much sugar are you putting in your coffee?'
'I got a sweet tooth.'
'You gotta sweet mouth!'
Review: 'Lovely little book of witticisms, it had me chuckling out loud quite a few times. This would be a really good reference book for getting across something witty during awkward silences on dates or could be used in meetings, I'm going to keep my copy at work close at hand.'
'I like the sort of book you can dip into, at random, when you've a couple of minutes to spare, and this is one of them. Humour isn't the only feature of these observations, many of them have a deeper aspect to them - can set you thinking or, just enjoy the fact that the author seems to have the knack to take any subject and put a funny spin on it.'

About the Author
I was born in London England in 1953, which makes me a baby boomer I think. Dad ran a market stall in Woolwich’s Beresford Square selling anything and everything. A natural Cockney salesman with all the patter that goes with it but when he was told to give it up or die from the cold, we packed up shop and migrated to Australia. In my youth I always enjoyed my old Dad’s tales of his adventures in the navy in WWII and of his childhood hop picking in Kent, I got my love of storytelling from my Dad. I wrote a book on cider in 2008 after being awarded a Churchill Fellowship to travel around the world and drink and research cider, the cider book sold out. I followed the success of my cider book by writing a series of madcap comic extravaganzas: Bigfoot Littlefoot & West. I followed the Bigfoot books with my Jack Hamma action adventure series starting with Shakespeare on the Roof. Then in 2015 I wrote three romantic travel adventures starting with Sex Sardines and Sauerkraut. This is the bit where I state that I am happily living the good life on our 5 acre property, on the beautiful island of Tasmania, spending my time walking, cycling, planting trees, growing vegetables and writing the odd book, very odd some people say.
