If you're like me, you're probably ready to chuck the coronavirus and have a good laugh.
So in this Tuesday's LocalLit newsletter, I'll be reviewing "The True Stories Of Ol' Melvin, Obadiah, Perkins MacGhee and Other Characters" by Kenneth Lee McGee of Plainfield.
Here is its Amazon description, as if the title wasn't clue enough: "These stories have been written over the course of several years though often quickly. Some were written for my own amusement.
"Others were written for family and friends. Some of the stories are told by Grandpa Joseph Colasantito his granddaughter Emmy.
"Some of them are from the point of view of the protagonist. One begins with me sitting in a recliner.
"Many of these adventures are adapted from the blogs on my website. All are meant to be lighthearted entertainment."
How lighthearted? Here's a quick excerpt from the blog when Ol’ Melvin and Obadiah encounter the Grand Canyon.
"Melvin grabbed hold of Obadiah’s rein before he lost his footing. He and Obadiah stood on the edge and looked out at the canyon. ‘Wow, Obadiah, that sure is a big ditch to cross.'"
