The book is entered as literary fiction although it includes both fiction short stories and poetry. It includes a wide range of topics from humor, poignancy, the unusual, and history to the very thoughtful and provoking.

Excerpt:  From the short story, Oswald K. Underfoot Hears The Wedding Bells Ring.

"We want a formal wedding, and we want at least a six-month courtship, Leon," said Sue Gambel looking her husand in the face with a tight, proud smie on her own face.

The huge fat woman wth newly cut and frizzed black hair standing behind her tried the same kind of smile, but somehow it was coming out as a grimace, particularly with the way she was holding her big knuckles with the valentines tattooed on them tightly against her hips.

Leon Gambel took a slow, deep breath of the cool morning air laden with the scents of honeysuckle and sheep n the nearby pens. This new liaison of his wife with the woman who called herself Susie in honor of Sue, and who stood a head taller than even him was throwing him. He never knew how to react next.

But there was at least one thing he did know how to react to--"Oswald K. Underfoot," he fairly snarled at the little, dark man behind him, "stop that giggling. Stop it now. A fellow can hardly think when you start giggling every time you see Susie."

"I can't help it, Leon, she's so purty, pretty, pretty Susie," Oswald K. Underfoot said while wrinkling his nose, and extending his face at the large woman with the heavily mascara-covered eyebrows and eye lashes.

Oh, God, was she? Yes, she really was sticking her tongue out at Oswald K. Underfoot to return the flirt. "OK, stop it.................................................

From the story Jimmy Schleibottem Cranks Central A Second Time.

"Hello,can you hear me?
"Why, yes, Central, this is Jimmy Schleighbottem. You knew my voice?
"You did? And here it's probably been a whole couple of weeks since I talked to you last. You're really smart, and good, Central. And,you can hear me just fine, Central?
"Good, Central,I thought you might be ale to hear me even better than last time cuz I've learned something new. I don't just use the catalogus on the chair to get up here to talk in the mouthpiece, and crank the phone to get you any more, Central.
"What am I doing? Why, Central, I go into the living room, and get the little stool to put up on the chair first, and then get the catalogues. It's a little wobbly, but I got a fine sense of balance, let me tell you, Central. I've turned six now..........
