James (Jim) got his inspiration to write by telling stories with his grandchildren. He is a U. S. Army veteran and a retired Baptist Minister. His short stories are inspired by his growing up, years in the Ozarks, plus his life as a Father, Grandfather and Baptist Minster.
This book is about the growing years a boy who was part of a large family during the nineteen forties and fifties in the Missouri Ozarks.
Life is filled with humorous events. The book is about these humorous times and events. As you read, the book will make you laugh, other parts will make your imagination kick into gear and you may feel a tear run down your cheek.
The setting of the book is the Missouri Ozarks which gives it a hillbilly flavor. If you enjoy humor from a young person's propspective you will, no doubt, find youreself re-reading this book.
For the older readers I am sure they will identify with many of the conditions mentioned and will recall similar times in their own life.
I pray my stories make you laugh or at the least bring a smile to your face.
