About the Book

In the whimsical tradition he is known for, humorist Dennis Ford once again embarks on an amusing exploration into the captivating worlds of science, literature, history, and popular culture—all without ever leaving the comfy air-conditioned interior of his Saturn Ion.

In the style of his previous work, Thinking About Everything, Ford shares a medley of new musings on the worries of the world and the unique friendliness of San Antonio as he plays peek-a-boo with a spider, attempts to climb a rainbow, and captures a leprechaun. Ever the helpful humorist, Ford continues on a journey of thoughtful adventures through the mundane and esoteric as he explains how the postal service can mail itself into a profitable future, why fantastical lies can make elections more interesting, and a way through which one can acquire a window seat on the ferry to the Great Beyond. Included are “Excellent Groaners,” a compilation of puns, and “Professor Fawcett’s Notorious Lecture on Test-Irrelevant Thoughts,” a learned presentation on the psychological perils of test anxiety told partly in acronyms.

Miles of Thoughts offers an amusing glimpse into one man’s upside-down world as he commutes through the beautiful scenery of the New Jersey Pine Barrens and contemplates life.
