What the Hell Was Grampa Thinkin'?
"What the Hell Was Grampa Thinkin'?" includes over 160 short stories, wherein the author makes fun of his 70+ years of life, by injecting humor into his real-life shenanigans. He’s not disclosed these tales before now, because he had no sane reason to do so, maybe now he’s insane. More
Have you ever just finished doin' some damn fool thing, right before you realized it was about the dumbest thing you coulda done at that particular junction? Well, I have, more times than I like to admit. However, now that I'm a grandpa, several times over, I've taken the time to put my shenanigans into story form. I threw in a dash of humor here and there that probably wasn't anywhere around when I perpetrated my head-shakin’ stunts!
If you're like me, you may have had times when you woke up in the middle of the night with a bladder that's a quart over full and a brain that's right on a quart low! Only to find yourself in a second story bedroom, of an old ranch house, that had never been introduced to indoor plumbing. In this predicament it seemed to me, in my youth, quite logical to give the potted plant on the window sill, it's 3:00 AM squirt of water. That momentary feeling of relief, when done several times, soon leads to gettin' your hide nailed to the barn door, after stiff sniffy snuffy big people, finally figure out why the Gardenia plant smells like a Peeony!
That's when someone feels compelled to ask, What the hell was Grampa Thinkin? That’s, possibly, a question without any good answer and what makes this book worth reading. It hangs onta over 150 short to stupid stories, about where and how, I squandered large portions of my life. It also allows you to see which mis-episodes you, yourself, probably engaged in and hoped would some day go away or just slowly fade into the sunset! My plan is to make you laugh hard enough at my mis-doin's to bring tears to yer eyes. Just be careful not to get the pages soggy or short-out your electronic readin' gizzmo! And for cry-men-ee sakes don't let your kids get their mitts on this cobbled together piece of un-literary work. It may give them a whole lot more ideas on ways to screw things up than you want to be in line for to handle. Cause, rest assured, if it bordered on insanity and didn't work, I tried it - probably more than once! So why not take a shot at owning the only book like this, in captivity? If for no other reason, than, to see if you can laugh yourself silly!
