These stories are all about life, its daily nuances, its twists and its beauty. Thailand Tales are told by a guy sensitive to life's joys, and who hasn't let tragedy and disaster stop him from realizing its fullness. The author wonders why I like him? Read just a bit and you will clearly see that it is virtually impossible not to. The stories celebrate life after retirement, in a place halfway around the world from "home." They show life in all its many facets, life that should be embraced two-fisted (and preferably wrapped squarely around a tennis racket handle), life that "giveth," life that "taketh." Jack writes with an indomitable spirit, and with the ability to take and give back, in constant wonder, in an exotic land.
