They Shoot Canoes, Don't They? | Patrick F. McManus

Pickpick

McManus used to write articles for magazines like Outdoor Life, and most of his books are collections of those articles, about hunting, fishing, and growing up in the sticks of Idaho. My dad loves McManus, and I have been gleaning life-lessons from his writing all my life. Like most collections, some of these shorts were stronger than others, but everyone one of them made me laugh at least once.

Crazeedi My hubby would love this book, I must get it for him! 3mo
ljuliel I need to read one of his books. They sound interesting. 3mo
TheAromaofBooks @Crazeedi @ljuliel - it's a certain kind of humor that isn't for everyone, but my family has always found him to be hilarious. It's been a long time since I've read all his books, so I can't say for sure which one is the best place to start, although I will say that his article on Sequences, found in The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw, is a foundational philosophy in my family. :-D ⬇ 3mo
TheAromaofBooks “What Hank seemed never able to grasp was that on a farm you simply don't go out and do a piece of work. No, the first thing you do is determine the lengthy sequence of activities necessary even to begin the job. Then you realize that the sequence of preparatory activities is so long you will never get to the intended task. So you go fishing instead.“ 3mo
Crazeedi @TheAromaofBooks you just made me bust up laughing!! That is exactly the philosophy on this farm!!!😉😂😂 3mo

Here's my #weeklyforecast - eclectic as usual! Currently enjoying the tagged book, which I haven't read in years. Swiss Family Robinson is an #lmpbc read for #GroupC so I am looking forward to it.

TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen @Eggs - thank you! I'm not usually very good at taking book pics, but the top of the desk suddenly struck me as an excellent spot to use. :-D 3mo

Finally got this book, I'm only 100 pages in, but so far, it's been really good! I will update once I finish it, but so far, I totally recommend it!
