Another Kind Of Memories

On a whim, way back in July my husband thought having his own blog similar to mine would be something he would possibly enjoy, and created an account, dug up a few good old pictures and made one teeny tiny little post.

I was hoping he would post regularly because he has so many great memories that it's a shame to let them be forgotten. Like the time he thought he was being kidnapped. His many adventures that only a boy growing up on a farm could have. His summer spent in the woods as an Indian and many more.

I have given up hope that he will ever blog regularly and so I was pleasantly surprised when this one of a kind book appeared.

He says his memories are copyrighted, so unless enough people would want a glimpse of what he has to share there will only ever be this one book.

  3. I'm in. You should let him tell his stories to your children, record it (do they still have tape recorders??), and then you could weave it into a fantastic story and wonderful keepsake for your family. Oh yeah, and US! Sounds like those kids of yours have writing in their blood ~ ♥

  8. What a neat idea!
    I would love to read it. It would be nice to read authentic Amish memories (like yours) instead of fiction all of the time. :)

  10. I would love to read your husband's book! My male farmer friends don't talk about their childhoods. What do they think about going back and forth in the field with only the wind and the squeak and jingle of the harnesses to keep them company? They won't say! Maybe he can make more and you can sell them on Etsy?

  11. The idea of self-publishing the book and selling it on Etsy is a great idea.

    My father wrote his memoirs and they were published by an academic press -- and now every library in Louisiana has a copy...it is important for posterity that memories be preserved...please also tell your husband to consider approaching the various university publishing offices about publishing it...

  12. It's wonderful that he's written down his memories, whether for others or just for the family, at least they're preserved. I love the cover pictures.
