When I Was a Boy . . .

Here’s a little something to warm your heart.  Dave Nelson, my college roommate, posted the following on his Facebook page this morning . . .

“I just completed a book entitiled "When I was a boy!"  It started out as a children's book, end ended up more for adults.  It took a lifetime to write, and will only take a few minutes to read.  If you like it, share it.  If you like it a lot, let me know what you really liked.  If you like it a whole lot, send me sacks of cash!;-).  If you didn't like it, well, sorry about that.  The link below should take you to a pdf file on my Wordpress page.”

After I stopped laughing (the “sacks of cash” crack is the Dave I lived with), I clicked on the link.  And I’m still thinking about what he wrote – and looking forward to the sequel.

Take four or five minutes and read it, especially if you remember the 60s and 70s – I think you’ll be glad you did.
