Father’s Day

I have some suggestions for books to give Dad for Father’s Day. Patrick F McManus, a Spokane area author, has been writing a column for Field and Stream and collecting his hilarious columns into books since 1978, when he published his first book, A Fine and Pleasant Misery.

Now I don’t do much hunting and fishing, but McManus is so droll, his characters are so outrageous, and the situations he describes so ludicrous – well, he has on occasion had me in tears of laughter. Dad will love it.

McManus has just written the first of what will be a series of mysteries about Blight County, Idaho, called The Blight Way: A Sheriff Bo Tully Mystery (©2006.) Wilhelm finished reading it the other night and he gives it about an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10, which from Wilhelm is high praise.

You can get a signed copy down at Auntie's.

Tomorrow: something for the dad who's an engineer wanna-be.

Great suggestion! I don't usually buy my husband a Father's Day gift, but this year may be the exception since the chicks have blown the nest.
