Real Cowboyin’ in Tucson!

(First Memories Book) I died and went to heaven when the Ryans, our long-time family friends, bought a working farm in Tucson. Even though vacations were only for “rich people”, somehow that summer we had enough money to go see their new Ponderosa. Partner, from dawn to dark thirty every single day, I was doing […]

Okie Moms Always Made it Better

(First Memories Book) Okie moms knew way more than doctors. Bad tummy? Dry toast and flat 7 Up if you were puking. Chicken noodle soup with Saltine crackers if not. Fever? A cool, wet washrag draped over your forehead. An aspirin hidden in a spoonful of grape jelly. And a mug of honey & lemon juice […]

Me and Foreman Scotty

Willard, Cannonball and a whole mess of screaming kids. If you were lucky, one day you got to be […]

Tennessee Walker & Horse Whisperer

(First Memories Book) It's been 60 years or so, but I still remember that ginormous Tennessee Walking Horse. We were at my Aunt Mackie's house on West 24th, back when that was wayyy out of town. I was maybe four or five, and probably about three feet tall. The Tennessee Walker was the biggest thing […]

Spanked With a Silk Hankie

(First Memories Book) My Great Grandma Ashley wasn't big as a minute. So when she threatened to whip me, I wasn’t scared. Besides, she was smiling that sweet, little old lady smile, and brandishing her embroidered hankie; that's what she was going to whip me with. I can still see her "threatening" me in my […]

Just finished reading your book. I was laughing out loud so much my husband asked what was I reading! And I kept thinking, “Bless his mom's heart”! My dad also read it and said he found it delightful. Looking forward to the second book. Thanks for the entertainment!

Couldn’t put it down. A total joy to read.

The author was a classmate of mine in high school, and is still a great Facebook friend. I knew this book would be awesome b/c of the way Bill writes his posts on Facebook telling his friends of his life in New Zealand. This book touched my heart in soo many ways. Bills writing is so descriptive, that in your mind you see what he’s writing about or transports you to the place. I couldn’t put it down. Bill, thank you for letting me go back to my days of innocence as a child in Norman, Oklahoma.

Having known the author all our lives I expected nothing less than stellar from him and he does not disappoint. It brought smiles and loud guffaws as I tripped down memory lane with him. It was so much more personal to me as I knew the characters in the book but all will enjoy reminiscing about that magical time in Norman . Give it a read you wont be disappointed!
