When trying to decide which excerpts to include, I asked several readers to submit their favorites. Over fifty readers provided their favorite stories. Very FEW were the same favorites. This revealed that ALL of the stories are worth repeating. With this in mind, I selected just a few to whet your appetite for amusing real life stories to enjoy with your favorite glass or bottle of wine. You’ll never drink alone.
First, let’s take a look at one of the most enterprising wild men of the Pacific Northwest. Terrific stories about my friend Harry making something out of nothing in “Harry Davis, the Mischievous Mechanical Marvel.” Inspiring and frightening!
Second, we can revel in the antics of Ronan O’Reilly, who launched the Beatles on Radio Caroline, and his British barroom buddies. Those Brits know how to score a bob or two!
Third, let’s visit the legendary Texas Legislature (The “Lege”), operating in the land of “extenuatin’ circumstances.” Oh, those bad boys! Bless their hearts.
NOTE: FOR A REALLY FUN READ, TRY EXCERPT #3. A TEXAS HOOT!
More to come: Errol Flynn, Albert Einstein, Vidal Sassoon, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, and many more guys and babes. All included in this enlightening and entertaining collection of true life stories when people actually had personalities, and didn’t text at the dinner table.
