    It was a very funny book. Didn't like a few things in it, but overall, it was okay.

    Love it! He also wrote Fowl Weather. Here's a link to the petliferadio.com website where you can listen to podcasts on his show "what were you thinking?" http://petliferadio.com/thinking.html
    prefer to listen to them via iTunes on my iPod this way I can pause, stop or ff/rewind the show whereas directly from the website you can only listen...

    The funniest one was episode 51 (Shore No Shore Birds) when Bob and his friend "Book Character Bill Holme". It really gets funny after a few minutes once they're at the wildlife refuge (Muskeagon Waste Water). These two guys are a couple of characters and play off each other perfectly. I was listening to this one in my car a few weeks ago and got to laughing so hard I had to sit in my car for a few minutes wiping my eyes and nose before going into the store [​IMG]

    I would recommend both his books and BTW he's writing another one now called "The funnel of happiness" (maybe Fun L of happiness?).

    Quote:Ok, I just listened to episode 51 again and it wasn't the one I was thinking of so I must have been thinking of another episode. If I can find it, I'll post the episode number here but many of the podcasts are worth listening to [​IMG]
