If you think you would enjoy a book of warm homespun stories, you have chosen the right book. "Musings of Yesteryear" is cleverly but genuinely written tales of the past that will warm your heart and peak your interest. Growing up on a farm in West Texas, moving up into a small town, working his way through high school will remind you perhaps of your own childhood education.
Life growing up in the 1930s and 1940s instilled in him a lifelong mantra, "Life is hard by the yard, but by the inch, it's a cinch". By the time he was a teenager, he had a quest to see the world. On his eighteenth birthday, he joined the Navy to do just that. He saw most of the Pacific from Panama to the Philippines and later ending up in the Korean War.
Celebrate his life as you read and ponder yours, a journey from obscurity to some professional notoriety. I would have loved to have written this story
