We live in a fast-paced, hectic society which seems far removed from the less complicated days of the recent past when life was simpler but wasn't really all that easy in many ways. For all those kids who survived the 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's, these stories from the good old days may strike a familiar chord. Why, When I Was a Kid is a collection of heartwarming short stories from the true life experiences of a normal American country boy. These autobiographical ramblings offer a glimpse into a rural lifestyle that may inspire your own trip down memory lane. As you venture through the pages of this book you will be brought to laughter as the author guides you through story titles such as, 'Dirt Clods and Aspen Trees', 'Cowpies and Lady Fingers', 'Buttermilk and Bologna Sandwiches', and 'Skunk in the Backseat', all of which will paint a descriptive picture of a young boy's escapades. Then tender stories like 'Hero Worship', 'My New Cowboy Hat', or 'Pautzke Eggs' may touch your heart and bring you to tears as similar memories of our own come to the'surface. These 'not so everyday' experiences range from a kid's perspective of life to a dad's realization that his daughter has grown up. Jim's gift for capturing these experiences in a fun and entertaining format will keep you reading till the end!
