About the Book

In this book, you will find poems about home, marriage, love, family, fun times, holidays, hunting, fishing, outdoor activities, and people. You will read of happiness, sadness, and reminiscing. You will read about character values such as honesty, friendship, helpfulness, justice, greed, and gossiping. You may also find some nonsense and humor in these pages.

These poems were written by my father, Sam Laskey (1903-1985). Dad worked hard to raise eight children born from 1926 to 1941, during the Great Depression years. Out of necessity, Dad was a man of many talents. He sewed dresses from chicken grain sack material for the girls. He made moccasins from felt for us to wear inside of our boots. He cut hair, soled shoes; and patched boots. He tied his fishing flies and made his spinners. He filed saws and made peep sights for hunting rifles.

Dad retired in 1965 due to ill health.
