Most of the stories will make funnybones ache, but a few will make heartstrings feel like fresh sutures. A child tries to eat a biscuit that is so hard firemen must remove it; Sammy the Basset steals a baloney his own approximate size and shape; there is no reset button when a neighbor knifes the ice cream man over a thin dime; and, “A Fine Bordelleaux” moves into the house nestled between a child’s school playground and his church.

I Talk Slower Than I Think chronicles the adventures and misadventures of a Georgia family growing up in the Sixties and Seventies. Although fans of Southern humor will enjoy the flavor, growing up transcends time and place.

The book gives parents permission to park the helicopter, grab Granny’s best tea strainer, and go outside to catch tadpoles with the kids.
