ABOUT THE COVER
People ask me, "Is that you on the cover?"
I always respond, "I am not going to say if it's me or not, but I
will say...it was one hell of a night!"
The events and happenings told within this book are authentic. Many
have been told and rehashed hundreds of times by a variety of people
over the years. They have become distorted, misinterpreted and in
most cases pretty far-fetched. Great pains have been taken
everywhere to preserve the embellishment that has long clothed many
of these tales with humor and irony.
The subjects range from the Great Smoky Mountains to the seas of the
Southeastern United States, all across the country and Canada, the
Mid East and the Far East. Its scope ranges from childhood and
college day pranks to the dilemmas and events that be-chanced
adulthood. These stories are woven of fish and beast, pranks and
humor, the thrill of the chase, chance happenings of youth and the
peculiarities of foreign travels.
These stories have been gathered from members of family, close
friends, dwellers of the countryside, the untamed mountains, the
sandy seashores, the vast wildernesses, the wild jungles and the
great pyramids. A few stories are my own experiences encountered
alone or with good friends. Many other stories were carefully
researched and found humorous, amusing and entertaining enough to
share with others.
This book is written from an Animal House point of view
incorporating sarcasm with much used slang. The purpose is to amuse
and entertain, possibly leaving a touch of nostalgia with the
reader. The use of language and wording is purposeful in hopes of
capturing the emotions of each situation precisely as they occurred.
Fictitious names have been created for the characters in all
stories. Any semblance found with these stories and characters by
the reader is sheer coincidence. This is merely to serve as
discretion for the true identity of the characters involved. So,
grab a seat, make yourself comfortable and oh, buckle up. Houston,
we have a problem!
