June 13, 2017: Father’s Day related Freebie: favorite dads in literature, best father/daughter or son relationships, books to buy your dad, worst dads in literature, etc. etc.
My dad was the one to introduce me to comedy in book form. Mostly that was through the work of author Patrick F McManus and newspaper syndicate Dave Berry. In fact, he probably won’t claim you as a relative unless you get some entertainment out of McManus. (When he was here last fall he picked up one of my books and read a few chapters one evening, and even though he’s probably read it half a dozen times, he was still laughing so hard he had tears rolling down his face.) But then again most of my family is of the hunting, fishing, farming outdoorsy type, and you kinda have to be to get the humor in those books.
So if you enjoy the great outdoors and like a good full belly laugh here are … (in no special order.)
