Bedtime Stories for Old Boogers & Boogerettes
This hilarious book by Country Comedian Ol' Ugly (aka John Glawson) makes a wonderful gift for parents and grandparents. Read this at bedtime, and you'll go to sleep with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart!
Like his first book, Tales from the Grub Box Cafe, his storytelling is first-rate, his grammar ain't.
You'll be skating right along with them on a cold starlit night in his story 'Skating Party'. You'll be staring at the wool-stockinged feet of cowboys around the cookstove as Joshua relates a tale about Bragging Ryley in 'Ride 'Em Ryley', and you'll get good honest tired while helping Arn cut logs for firewood in 'Ma Nature's Peace'.
The stories are what Ol' Ug calls "barnyard clean". That means there ain't no cussing ... well, except for the odd "hell" or "damn", but sometimes some fertilizer will hit the page and paint a picture in your head.
“If you’ve spent much time in small towns, a number of the characters in Ol’ Ugly’s writing might seem familiar. There’s a laugh on every page of this book, and more than a few heart-warming moments. Well worth the read.”
