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.”
