MORE Memories of an Okie Boomer

You don’t need a time machine to travel back to your childhood in the 60s and 70s. Just open “MORE Memories of an Okie Boomer” and you’ll find yourself back in the day.

Through funny story after funny story, about a particular boy growing up in a specific place, Bill Moore tells all our stories in ways that will make you smile, laugh out loud and maybe even tear up.

“MORE Memories” is for people who: loved making homemade ice cream and catching mosquitoes in their Aunt’s back yard; can still sing the Rawhide theme song, L’eggs Commercial, and 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall; couldn’t have made it without their best friend, cousins and siblings; and dearly loved Skateland, Snow Days, eating PB&J sandwiches, and playing with horny toads, better than anything.

As a “bonus”, Bill’s sequel also shares hysterical “older” Memories about Hendrix concerts; intramural activities and adult beverages; finding a wiener in a jar at Oklahoma University; and his Cousin Sonny’s get-rich-quick Worm Ranch.

Bill even shares two emotional Memories about why his 5-foot-2 Mother wore red lipstick, and how his sister Cathy almost died in a car wreck.

Spoiler alert: If you open “MORE Memories”, you may be the latest person of a certain age to say: “I simply cannot remember the last time I enjoyed reading a book so much.”

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!

I loved Bill's book! I also grew up in Norman and really enjoyed the memories (bought an extra book to share as a gift). Looking forward to reading Bill's next book with more memories of growing up in Norman.
