    University of Texas of the Permian Basin
  • You were a smashing success. I don't remember when I've heard so much non-stop laughter from a group of supposedly grown men.
    Salesmanship Club of Dallas
  • I heard people belly-laughing that at other times it would be hard to get them to smile.
    Bridgeport Chamber
  • Everybody at our table laughed until it brought tears.
    Glen Rose
  • If people weren't laughing out loud, they were sitting with big smiles on their faces..a true sign of a good time.
    Petroleum Museum
  • To me it was like being at a party and listening to some tall tales from good friends.
    Scurry County Museum
  • Laughter truly is an elixir and we had a grand time imbibing your potent tonic.

  • A wise old editor, my first, once told me that people want to read stories about other people. He taught me to make school board stories and city council stories come alive by writing about the people. You do that very well. That's why my readers love you
    Scott Reese Willey, Publisher The Hometown Press Winnie, TX
  • His archive of Texas oral histories is so very important and will be a valuable resource for historians in the future. They tell how Texans live
