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.
