Roy’s Hard Up

Dad is SUPPOSED to be working for me. He’s here for dual events to benefit Friends of the Library: a book sale at the Charleston Farmers Market yesterday, and an author appearance at the Charleston County Library’s Main Branch on Tuesday, June 24 at 6pm.

While he should have been handing out book cards and chatting people up, here’s what he was apparently doing instead.

His one-sided exchange with my mother (overheard by MTM and me). In his own words.

“Hey, Linda.”


“You know, I was watching you at that Farmers Market today.”

More silence.

“I was thinking you look real good in that outfit.”

Still more silence.

“I was watching you when you bent over and everything, and—”


Horny laughter.



We had a banner sales day at the Charleston Farmers Market yesterday. Thanks to everyone who came out to support Friends of the Library. In case you missed it, you can get your very own copy of To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis by following the links below.

  1. I’ll just leave this here. I hope Roy and your mom like Sylvester… 😀

  2. I think it is wonderful that your dad is still titilated by your mom. Just think, this is what’s coming for you in another 30 years or so. You should be learning from their intercourse. I mean, if you and MTM are still going at it when you are your parents age, that wouldn’t suck.

  3. More power to them. What you didn’t write was whether or not your mom returned his ardor.

  12. Forcing respected old people to work hawking books when they should be resting in their recliner, eavesdropping, shouting in all-caps and using said old person to provide humor in a blog = Elder Abuse. Don’t make me alert the authorities.

  13. Ah, I love it! I can guarantee that if my own dad were still alive, he’d be the same way.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

  14. Andra, when are you going to write a book with just Roy stories? That might be quite the novel! 😉

  18. I must tell you that if I had my way I’d snap my fingers and you guys would be a reality show! You have it all over Honey Boo Boo’s family–and your dad is MUCH more entertaining than the Kardashian’s. LOL! So glad to hear it was a banner day in sales and opportunity. Each of you is working so hard and I’m very impressed that you can keep going as you do. ox
