Blurb: Tony Lindsay’s first venture into social commentary and rural humor is a riotous collection of vignettes rooted in the Deep South and skewering preachers, salesmen, marriage, big shots and especially the downhome, hard-drinking, overly affectionate folks who are his heroes.

Teaser from the vignette entitled “Forget My Soul”:

“Laard, this here fisherman done walked right into the swamp. He ain’t got a lick of sense, and he ain’t a bit nice. Reckon you’ll be dealing with his soul right soon. And now, Laard, I ask You to comfort them that’s done sick and them that’s done afflicted in this here holler. And Laard . . .”

“Forget the damn sickies. Forget the afflicted bastards. Save my ass!”

  2. The most fun you can have sitting down is trying to figure out a fun way to complete the sentence: The most fun you can have sitting down is . . .

    The most fun you can have sitting down is editing! Every writer should know this.

  4. The most fun you can have sitting down … is snuggling with your sweetheart on a porch swing at the end of day – and building memories that will last and endure for a lifetime. Notice: rocking on said porch swing can become frisky and addictive with the right Prince Charming. Enjoy! But, find your own Prince, mine’s busy at the moment …
