PLEASE HOLD THUMBS


It is with a great deal of pride of pride and a heaping helping of pleasure that I announce the publication of my latest book entitled:
PLEASE HOLD THUMBS: A NOT-SO-ROUND TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA

Please hold what? Thumbs, my dears, thumbs. It's a South African expression (sometimes attributed to the Germans as well) that means the same thing as crossing your fingers for luck, Luck is something my wife and I both needed back in 2002 when this truest of all possible true stories took place.

Attending our daughter's wedding in South Africa promised to be the vacation of a lifetime. But first, we had to face the treacherous gauntlet known as modern day travel. Join us, won't you, for we are indeed a hapless, sometimes helpless couple as we brave our way through a never-ending obstacle course filled with such hazards as flight delays, the purgatory of layovers and an incompetent, uncaring air carrier that treats its passengers worse than their luggage.
Waiting for us on the other side of the world are an honest-to-goodness safari with amorous lions and elephants with anger issues, a life-affirming visit to a South African school and an anxious bride and groom, standing patiently at the airport with a sign that reads:
"WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?"
The answer lies within the pages of PLEASE HOLD THUMBS: A NOT-SO-ROUND TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA, a tale of triumph and turbulence...one that dares to tell the world's cruelest joke:
HAVE A NICE TRIP?
SEE YA NEXT FALL!
