About the Book

Laughter is such a wonderful gift. We should spend more time enjoying it. This book is an accounting of a few of the many memorable and amusing (hopefully) events in my life. I have been in extraordinarily high and low places, and have laughed all the way home. I hope you will travel with me to high society debutante balls in Dallas and to dirt roads on mountaintops in Mexico. I hope you will smile at the hunting and fishing episodes and laugh out loud on more than one occasion. If you are grinning just a little bit by the end of the book, I will have accomplished my goal.
