More hilarious outdoor misadventures with the mule annoyer. From a wild ride down the Owens River in a run-a-way lawnchair to a surprise accident at the 5th grade school play. From a '48 DeSoto to a cursed e-mail sent by his ex-wife, join Tom, his abiding wife, Cathy, and all of Tom's colorful characters in A Perplexing Addiction.


"Now you might not think this odd number of misaligned chromies would be that big of a deal; after all, we humans have been putting up with street mimes, enviro-meddlers, and the Hollywood crowd for years now, and still we are able to muddle along somehow. But the fact is, it's this odd number of chromosomes that cause the mule to be naturaly sterile and unable to produce. If only this were the case with some individuals I know. Anyway, my affliction with mules began early in life. It was at the tender age of about eight or nine I believe when the disease first reared its ugly head, no pun intended"

~excerpt from A Perplexing Addiction.    


In the years I've been married to Vera the vegetable lady, there are one or two other minor, insignificant pleasures she has forbid me. My wife won't let me bring home Ashley Judd, Halle Berry and Jamie Lee Curtis. She claims we don't have a large enough house and it would be too hard to get into the bathroom. She also won't let me near the mules with a loaded firearm.

Professional Reviews

Roundtable Reviews. April 2006, Robert H. Goss
Thomas Firth has done it again. A PERPLEXING ADDICTION is a follow-up to THE HORSE WHISTLER which I reviewed in October 2005.

Once again, I was treated to a series of great stories ranging from trips on mule back, to local characters, to camping stories. I particularly loved the first story HOW TO CATCH A MULE in which Mr. Firth advises one to employ no less than 37 people to assist in catching the mule. I laughed so much I had tears in my eyes. Another great story is THE TEN MULE COMMANDMENTS.

I said it in my October 2005 review and I'll repeat it here. Mr. Firth, please keep these great stories coming. They make for some of the best reading I have had in a long time.

COWBOY MAGAZINE, spring issue 2006,
Anybody who is known to be a mule man is almost always known to be a character. After all, it takes a special breed of man to work with, tolerate, appreciate, and even love that particular special breed of equine. Mule men have a lot of patience, though even theirs can be taxed, and they almost always have a healthy sense of humor.

Humor caused by men and mules is much of what this hilarious book is all about. If you like to laugh, you'll love this collection of Tom's adventures.
