Short stories built around ""my old man"", Georgia boy's father, who'd rather sleep in the sun that occupy his time with a job. There's the time he put the goats on the roof to shame his wife when the ladies' circle was coming; there's the time he sold the neighbor's crap ron and the blame off on the4 long sufferling ""Handsome""; there's the time he brought a home, when he was so drunk he broke the furniture there the time he went fishing for a calf, when he tolled the church tell for a selling, he was for a day and collected the dogs with a bit of meat. nd and again -- he gets the best of the bargain. The book ends with the death of the cook that was his for days and days of absence. Odd twist of humor, occassionally , occassionally tender. light -- but well done.
