About the Author

David M. Stameshkin David M. Stameshkin was born, raised, and educated in the Midwest. He graduated from the University of Chicago, and earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. in history from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. After teaching history for several years at Middlebury College in Vermont, he and his wife, Colleen, a philosophy professor, settled in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1976 so that she could accept a tenure-track teaching position at Millersville University, where she retired in 2011 after completing 35 years of teaching. From 1978 until he retired in 2012, David was an administrator and instructor at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster. He has taught a wide variety of American history courses, including classes in African-American history, the history of race relations and the history of education. He has published several historical monographs and co-edited another. Stameshkin is also a frustrated comedian, musician, and entertainer. Since 1985, he has written, produced, directed, and/or starred in nearly thirty popular musical comedy spoofs, including the infamous Fum Follies at F&M and annual Purimshpiels at his synagogue. He plays clarinet in the Chopped Liver River Band, a klezmer group in Lancaster, and is a soloist in the choir, Chavrai Zamir. David and Colleen, who just celebrated their 45th anniversary, live in Lancaster and summer in a little cabin on Lake Dunmore in Vermont. They have two adult daughters, Anne, a writer and editor in New York City; and Elizabeth, an intellectual property attorney in San Francisco.

This is a totally enjoyable and life enhancing read. It will make you laugh, smile and cry. It is about a man's journey through life and his positive attitude and acceptance of what comes along. David can be funny, introspective and thought provoking as he takes you on some of the paths he has taken and what he has learned from the relationships he has formed along the way. Thank you David Stameshkin.

You'll laugh/you'll cry- okay you will laugh!! I have completely enjoyed this book. The stories are down to earth, full of interesting dialog and most importantly very funny. I found myself laughing out loud often. I completely enjoyed it and will look for another by D. M. Stameshkin sometime in the [I hope] near future. I highly recommend it! He has "Nothing to be ashamed of!"

I so enjoyed this book! A quick and amusing memoir. I found myself laughing out loud at the many stories--particularly the cab driver chapter. Well written and a good blue print for how to approach retirement! May we all be so lucky!

I knew Dean S when I was in college, and he had so many funny stories and warm thoughts to share all the time. And he was very creative in his problem solving! I remember he was the "Prefect" in our House for the colleges new House System, and as one of the house advisers, I was at a meeting once when someone brought up the issue of being "sexiled" (a phenomenon where your roommate shuts you out of your shared room because they are getting to "know" another person. Somehow, with Stameshkins genius, it was decided that the best way to be considerate of roommates was to only have sex in the afternoon. So that became our house slogan for the rest of my college career... "Bonchek House - where we only have sex in the afternoon".

And the book is so reminiscent of not only his wit, but his honesty. I do hope it gets wide readership, because I think it calls things for what they are, and gives voice to questions many of us have certainly had, but in the way only he can tell it. Grab a copy now! You won't regret it.

This is a funny, charming and wise book. This easy read will have you smiling like the kind, caring recently retired educator who wrote it. David M. Stameshkin recalls his jobs and joys, life and laments in an easy read that entertains and offers life lessons. The talented author could certainly have succeeded in other careers than academia. It was a gift to the campus community at Franklin & Marshall College, and elsewhere, that he did not spend his whole working life as a salesman, cab driver, comedian or rabbi. The author realizes that at this point in life he need not regret the path not taken. Readers, whether recent graduates or recent retirees, will also see that there is joy in the journey and the destination is not the only concern.

I know David well. I retired from F&M College two years before David where he was an Administrator and I was a Staffer. But you don't have to know him to enjoy the humor and occasional looks into his personal life that are, for the most part, as humorous as the rest of The F**it List.

You WILL enjoy this look into the life of the man that loves people and being funny. It leaves no doubt why every student that crossed his path adore him!

We all think it, we all daydream about a Bucket List and we all secretly cringe or laugh at what others have on their List. David Stameshkin not only makes us laugh at things he would never do but he leads us through the drama and the trauma of his life that led him to put so many hilarious items on his F**ket List. It's great to fine an author who can be insightful and funny at the same time.

I truly enjoyed this book! David Stameshkin has lived an interesting life, and learned many things along the way. His humor shines through the pages of this book as he gives accounts of careers he has dabbled in, but will not be pursuing. I recommend this to anyone who wants to get to know an incredible guy, and have a few laughs!
