From the Author

“When we first started this project, I wasn’t so sure about the format. But when I saw what Joy designed, I could see she was right. I told her, ‘You’re the pro Joy, so you tell me if I’m blowin’ smoke!’ I sent her over three dozen files filled with a bunch of stories each, and she somehow got ‘em into chapters that made sense. When we got to the editing part of the project, I found out that writing the book was the easy part! Joy was a stickler for making sure everything was clear for the readers – yet she managed to make it all seem as if I was telling these stories around a campfire in the Northwoods. My book would never have made it into print if it wasn’t for Joy!”
