MissMerri: Well here it is November, Irish dear, and still the post cupboard is bare. Don't you feel bad about depriving your fans of some literary sustenance all these bleak winter months? Come on! Give us a song! Or a wee Irish fable at least. You are missed.

Badger_29: My sentiments exactly, I say, without a trace of irony . . .
One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.
The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
