Fatdaddy's Watermelon and Other Tales from the Hollow is a book I wrote about growing up in the rural south, in my case, Mississippi. Fatdaddy was my grandfather and this book is about time I spent on his modest dairy farm in the 60's under the loving care of my Grandma Bubba. It will make you laugh and cry and take you back to a more simple time in our history. Whether you are from the South or not, you will certainly enjoy this read. This book has about 28 stories and poems and over 50 photos from those most precious of times. I also include a free CD of me telling some of the stories from the book. This is a fabulous book for all ages, children to seniors...ESPECIALLY SENIORS! Here is an excerpt from my book:

turtles and frogs
rockin’ chair porches
sloppin’ the hogs

swatting mosquitoes
catching fireflies

red country skies

fried green tomatoes
grandma’s caresses
chenille-covered slumber
flour sack dresses
