About the Book
The year 2011 has been one of the more memorable years experienced by this writer. The social happenings, the political events and the economy all worked together to make it a year to remember. This is not a commentary on those events, but these essays have been affected by the events. These are simply stories I have told from time to time, and would tell to my children and grand-children if they were inclined to listen. They aren't so inclined. So, I'm hoping that some day they will pick this book up and read it, along with others I have written, and say to themselves, "So, that's where I came from. That's who I am."
