A snippet from my new book,”It’s Gotta Be the Shorts.“
One of the most useful pieces of information, especially if they live in a rural area, is to discover what kind of car they drive along with a portion of their license plate number. Many times they will be seen in town and if you have a parcel for them, you can run them down and give it to them, thus saving a trip out in the country. This little fact saved us many hours of work over the years.
It can also have a humorous and embarrassing outcome. One day I happened to have a parcel for Bill. It was common knowledge he was married but had a girlfriend. It was one of those things that was common knowledge, but was only mentioned in a small circle of friends.
I suppose they thought they were getting away with something and nobody knew, far from the truth.
On this particular day, I happened to see Bill’s car parked at his girlfriend’s house. It had been a quiet day and not much fun. It was time to change that.
I stopped at the girlfriend’s house and asked if Bill was there, I had a package for him.
She had the strangest look on her face; about that time Bill came to the door and wanted to know how I knew he was there.
I mean his car was parked in the driveway. It’s not rocket science. Somehow the incident spread all over town and led for a week of excitement.
His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America as well as the aborigines of Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has published several books about his adventures.
