About the Book

This series of short stories and anecdotes entitled: Stories About: Sports, Mothers-in-Law, & The Greatest Generation is a second trip down through time and experience. The stories in this second book, taken primarily from the author's "SportsTalk and More" newspaper column, deal with a variety of subjects. Some are factual true stories, while others are written with tongue placed firmly in cheek. There are stories about baseball and basketball, about life in America both real and imagined, about hero's real and made up, and a story about Uncle Charlie Brown, and "The Greatest Generation" who saved the world from Germany's Hitler, Italy's Mussolini, and Tojo and the Japanese Warlords. Most stories in this book are funny and should make you laugh, other stories will make you think, and some might even bring a tear or two.
