Some of Elmer’s poems were getting lost so family and friends urged him to write a book to preserve them. Finally in 2007, Elmer decided to write the book. But rather than just preserve the poems, he decided to also include vignettes of memories as a child of the Great Depression, World War II, career, second courtship and life as an innkeeper.



The memories reflect Elmer’s strict Christian upbringing, years of rebellion, then a return to his spiritual roots. The poems sandwiched between the vignettes run from the nearly risqué to spiritual. Most of the old stories set to verse are meant to amuse you and Elmer’s memories may remind you of your own.
