This book is full of oddities, weird moments and events, and not-of-the-usual variety near-death experiences. Wacky animals and even a bird or two contribute to these humorous short stories.
If you ever believed life outside the city limits—way outside—was boring, this book might show offer you a different view of rural life. It can be interesting and it can be fun.
It is rarely boring.
Author Nancy Hare has never been cut in half by a stage magician, but that may be the only thing she hasn’t done. She has been a homemaker, mother, legal secretary, medical illustrator, 18-wheeler driver, public works office manager, and animal rescue crusader amongst many other occupations all over the map to keep child fed, but nothing illegal nor immoral— yet.
A native of middle Georgia, she grew up in a small town where everyone knew exactly how many skeletons were in everyone else’s closet, and how they got there.
Nancy has attended five colleges but still doesn’t know what she wants to be when she finally grows up. She is well-known and loved in her community, and spends her time reading, writing, volunteering in her town, helping out those in need, and caring for her multitude of rescued animals.
