I don’t know where or how to start this. I have tried a few times. Look over at the right hand side of my site and you’ll see a linky thing for the book. Go buy it. It’s great. No, really it is. I have read quite a few good books recently and this one is my favorite. It’s over there –>
The auld fella’ known as Grandad is a hoot! I mean that in a good way. His book is drawn from his blog and reflects his take on modern society and how looney it has become. The name itself describes it well. It’s the ramblings knocking around in Grandad’s head. It’s a wonderful read in that it takes you away from the daily grind and takes you to the Irish countryside for a short while. Well it’s Grandad’s countryside and in this countryside tourists beware! The book will take you on a journey from the sublime to the hilarious and all the way to thoughtful.
Look it’s right over there –>
You can read about his faithful canine Snady (Sandy doesn’t type so well). You’ll explore his relationship with his frying pan wielding wife, Herself and his daughter with an unpronouncable Irish name aka K8, her fiancée T.A.T. ( The Accidental Terrorist) as well as all the poor folks he comes into contact with on a regular basis. I’m left with the impression that Bertie Ahern, the former Taoiseach and Grandad may not be best of friends.
The whole thing is well written and funny and thoughtful. For me it was like going to visit an old friend.
I can’t recommend it highly enough. So go buy it already. It’s right there—>
