In his first offering, Dinner With W.T., Rick Baber serves up a mixture of stories and poems guaranteed to satisfy anyone hungry for homespun humor and charm. 


Excerpt

I tried to reassure myself. "It's not the end of the world, Rick. You just have a loggerhead hanging from your nutsack."
I gently lifted W.T. to relieve some of the pressure, and hobbled over to the bed, thinking that if I just spread out and laid there for a few minutes he'd let go. He didn't.
I lit a cigarette and tried to lean forward and blow smoke in his face. That didn't do any good either.
Panic turned to paranoia. I could see the night clerk (that greasy little weasel bastard with the wire rim glasses) downstairs, with all of his greasy little bug-doctor-weasel bastard friends, gathered around the secretly-installed surveillance camera monitor, spitting beer as they laughed unrestrainedly at the image of the smoking turtle between the naked man's legs. I turned out the lamp beside the bed, but the glow from the television still illuminated me...and W.T. And the damn remote wouldn't work. And it was on cable, showing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Reader Reviews for "Dinner With W.T."

Reviewed by Zach Mann 4/12/2003
It was Deere, Arkansas in 1978--Rick and the Bushman had a contract to fill--and no band. Things could have gotten sticky. It was, after all, Arkansas in April, and Rick Calhoun had poor Rick by the shortest of hairs---a gig with no band--luckily Rick Buford and yours truly came in like spies from the cold to bale out our heroes. Deere rocked, I got laid, and Rick fulfilled his contract. I'm not sure, but I beleive the band's name was..........Orion? How ya been, Rick?

Hello Rick,
Funny! Loved the exerpt. I met with your Mom and Dad today at your Aunt & Uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. I won't go into details but you know who they are.
Several times I have seen your post on authorsden and thought, uumh, is that Rick Baber kin to me! Now I know. I will check out your book and you be sure to check out my authorsden site. It's sure nice to know another author is in the family. Take care and I hope you sell tons of copies of your book.
