Author's Note:

The stories in this book are based on many fond memories.  While recalling some events, I found it practical to add, shall we say, enhancements, to try to give them more depth, interest, and additional enjoyment for the reader.  The non-fiction stories contain nostalgia, whimsey, and adventure; they are an attempt to have the reader accompany me through times that I found interesting, adventurous, and happy.  I wrote them as if I were sitting at a table with a few folks telling them a story. 

The reader is easily drawn into these stories; it is not difficult to imagine one's self as a participant.  The variety of subjects, locales, and adventures make this a difficult book to put aside; it is a real page-turner.  So, if you suddenly feel like you want something to read, just pick up a copy of the book, relax, and enjoy.
