I hope you have as much fun reading this book as I did putting it together.  Maybe it will bring to mind a few of your own happy memories of Growing Up In Waldron.

    I'll be sending a check soon. Your writing is marvelous, and I'd like nothing better than to have a collection of your pieces between some covers so that I can access them some night when I've nothing better to do.

    I could not believe it when someone sent me the blog on your book. I'm the lost Lisa Bain. I can't wait to get your book on Waldron. Just wanted to drop a note now to tell you I'm not really lost, just misplaced. Moved away after my father died. Yes he was a pharmacist at Owens Drug. My family moved back to Conway, AR where John Martin and Marsha, brother and sister, were born. Will be looking forward to reading your book.
