Leonard Stegmannabout this book: From catching lightning bugs in a jar to his first cuss word, from his first Beatles record to a college panty raid, Leonard Stegmann takes us on a funny, warm and occasionally sad journey into the past.
You'll laugh as Leonard shorts out the lights of his college dorm by plugging in one of the very first hot combs, and you'll share his frustration with his grandma's incomprehensible inability to recognize the unlimited humor potential in a slice of rubber cheese. You might tear up a bit at the heartfelt memories of his mother and perhaps even become a bit angry at the teacher who told an entire second grade class the truth about Santa.
"People and Things That Went Before" contains over sixty nostalgic stories from a time not so very long ago. It is written in a casual and humorous style that is sure to entertain readers of any age, and perhaps even awaken some long-dormant memories that each of us carries inside throughout our lives.
