A bit about Like My Old Pappy Used to Say . . .
Like My Old Pappy Used to Say is about nothing, and everything; it is a lexicon of colorful and sometimes amusing words and phrases that cock a snook at political correctness; it is a pæan to individual responsibility; it is a soupçon of history wrapped in tales of the Old West . . . the real one.
This book will offend the professionally compassionate and entertain the few who hanker after freedom. The Author, fed up to here with all the whining about this and that, began remembering old tales of really hard times - and no small amount of experience of his own - and decided to write down his old Pappy's comments and observations. Pappy knew hard times. Pappy didn't whine about hard times, he did something about them. When he had a comment to make, he made it; they are worth remembering, and studying, and adopting into Modern American - they are, at any rate, less grating to the ear and annoying to the intellect than the sterile pomposities belovèd of the op-ed writers.
