About the Book

WORK AND PLAY in southern Indiana” is the third in a series of my books. It is in the time of the 1970’s and 1980’s. In it is some things learned working construction and then at a foundry. Also are thoughts on three wheelers, rafting creeks and walking through train tunnels.


My first book MAPLE GROVE, was of growing up on a dairy farm. My second book, MAPLE GROVE THE 60’s, was of some things I learned during my teenage years.


Wanting to save stories for my grandchildren, I bought a computer in 1990 and started compiling my hand written writings. I am just an average person with my average stories. People seem to enjoy relating to these average stories, remembering their version of life.

About the Author

My first book, MAPLE GROVE was about growing up in a farming neighborhood of the 1940s and 1950s. My second book of the series, MAPLE GROVE THE 60’s was of some things I learned in my teenage years, such as the army guard and some places I worked.


If I live long enough and am able, I have one more “book” I would like to publish. It will be of my later years in this farming community, the later years of working in a foundry, grandkids, older parents and things I learned along the way that others might relate to.
