Review for The Misadventures of Joe Bradley Mullins:

Joe Bradley didn't waste any time in getting out of there. He took off down the trail as fast as he could. Oh, I forgot my fishin' pole and other stuff, he thought as he stopped to go back for them. He ran as fast as he could and grabbed his fishing pole, the torch, and his bag of stuff in one quick swoop while he was a-turnin' to run again. 

That was when he saw it; that big old bear was standing right there in front of him. How did it get out of that ole hole? Joe Bradley wondered as he watched it without breathing. That hole was so deep, how did it get out?

Joe Bradley Mullins was on his way to spend the summer with his Aunt Sue in Shawnee, Missouri. His parents have given him enough money to purchase his needed train ticket and enough extra to buy some food along the way. 

Little did he know what he would encounter: grizzly bears, a pack of hungry wolves, Sasquatch, gypsy twins, a ferocious lion and tiger, Goliath, waking up in jail, seeing ghosts at Ms. Ledbetter's, some bats in a cave, and being kidnapped.

I guess Sheriff Dan said it best, 'He's a rascal of a young lad, always a'gittin' himself into some kind of trouble.'

You’re Right With Lamar

One of Tennessee’s favorite sons, Davy Crockett, coined an oft-used phrase:  “Be always sure you’re right, then go ahead.” Being sure is quite important, but may be difficult in this election cycle. The Democratic nominee campaigning against Lamar Alexander is a man whose radio ads call for “change,” “fair” taxes and more jobs.  Sounds good, huh?   ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: A Late Garden Walk

Due to a series of pressing events I didn’t get a chance to make my September walk through the garden until yesterday.

So before the temperatures drop, allow me to catch up: AN ORCHID ... (click for more)
