About the Author

Tom Boggs, a former Army Green Beret Full Colonel, lives in Demopolis, Alabama where he is still active in Veterans Affairs, practices law with the oldest firm in Marengo county, and raises Black Angus beef cattle on his 140 acre farm ten miles from town. He is often called upon to speak at various functions, and is usually requested to include historical and humorous stories from weekly newspaper columns he has written since 1998. The readers of his column have encouraged him to write a book based on his weekly ramblings about old times in the rural South, with emphasis on the fabulous forties and fifties; thus Magnolia Blossoms and Bad Tasting Water. Tom Boggs was raised in the West Central Alabama County Seat town of Linden during the forties and fifties, the son of a lawyer, District Attorney, and Circuit Judge, who moved to the county in 1933, and a mother, whose family had been in the county singe the early 1800's. He learned about the history and the people of the area from his mother, who Miss Linden of 1933, and he learned the art of story telling from hid daddy. The author and his wife, Alice, handle all of the work on the cattle farm themselves, with special help from grandchildren, who sometimes get sidetracked fishing or swimming in the pond or hand feeding the donkey. He is presently working on a Historical Fiction Novel, but feels a special kindred spirit with his first book about people, places and times unique in the history of this country.

Format: Kindle Edition
I have been keeping up with the author's newspaper column for years. This book is a collection of his best newspaper columns. The book will make you laugh, it will make you cry, but most of all it will take you back to a time we either lived in, or wish we did. I would highly recommend this book!
