This is a collection of mostly humorous short stories, with the occasional more realistic ones, telling about coming-of-age in the South from the 1950s until today’s modern world. You’ll go from phones made from two tin cans attached by a piece of waxed string in 1950 until today’s “it must be true because I saw it on the internet” era. You’ll travel from the sleepy small settlement of Cassville, Georgia, where you know everybody, to bustling cities full of people you’ll only pass by on the sidewalk, not knowing and not being known by any of them.


Bobby Jarrett:
I was born in 1944, the first of six children. I served in the Marine Corps for 4½ years right out of high school. I worked in manufacturing for fifty-plus years. I started college at age thirty-seven, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business. I was a lifelong avid reader turned into wannabe writer in the mid-’70s. I love writing short stories.
