ANNOUNCING A SUPPLEMENT TO HERITAGE OF THE TOE RIVER VALLEY:
“TICKLERS FROM THE TOE: HUMOR FROM THE COUNTIES OF AVERY, MITCHELL, AND YANCEY”

Ready for a few good laughs? Here is a collection of 256 humorous stories, some (as my late lamented father would say), “funny enough to make a dog laugh!”

Presented in a format that is “easy on the eyes,” Ticklers is a collection of stories from the entire Toe Valley area, some about events as long as 200 years ago, others about happenings in your lifetime. Some of them may be entirely true, others almost surely exaggerated in retelling over the years, and yet other maybe just told in good humor. Only those observed personally by me are claimed to be true!

Most of them are illustrated with a cartoon by a contemporary artist, and many have a photo of the featured actor. Such illustrations are usually at least half-page or more.

Your ancestors, until now, may have been only a name, but herein they become real live persons whose reported activities will bring a smile (if not a laugh) to your face!

This volume is the same high quality cover design, paper and print as the regular HERITAGE series, but it is paper-back with a sewn binding.

Who can resist such episodes as: “My grandmother gets `hosed’ by a hound,” “Barfing Down The Wall,” “Proper Etiquette For Blowing One’s Nose,” or “Granville Byrd Gets Locked in the Outhouse”?
