"This book is garnered from some 3,500 columns written by Bill Boyd during a twenty-five year career with the Macon Telegraph. His subjects were mostly every day people who normally got their names in the paper only when they were born, married, or died. Boyd, however, told their stories as if they were his own and in a language that all could understand. Some of these columns are classic southern humor that have entertained thousands of readers. Some are stories of sacrifice and endurance that will tug at the heartstrings. Regular players in his columns include his wife Marvalene; an adopted son Joe; Wanda, a foster daughter; his only grandchild, Joshua David Boyd; and his friend, Muley, the country boy. Boyd also reminisces about "the used-to-be" with his mother who rode an eighteen wheeler around the country with her much younger husband when she was over eighty years old."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
