Book Title

The book thang is getting down to the nitty-gritty. I'm getting one more estimate on printing costs and settling on graphics. I couldn't come up with a decent title for the work. Most of the stuff I was toying with sounded lame and I was getting frustrated.
Last Sunday morning as we sat drinking our coffee, I reeled off several of the titles to my lovely spouse. After about the third title, her eyes crossed slightly and I could tell I was losing her.
"Yes those are OK, but I think we can do better." She has really been supportive and has been instrumental in putting it all together. "Why don't you let me have a shot at it," she said, reaching for a pad a pencil.
Her first few suggestions sounded close to the mark, but they just didn't click with me. Then she said "I've got it!" When the words rolled off her tongue, I knew she nailed it. The title she came up with is:
"Remembering Big"
Reflections & Ponderings of the Sloss Holler Scholar

I love it when a plan comes together.

    Have you not realized yet that if it was not for Jilda you would just be RICK?

    The title sounds great. Go with it!

  2. And one of the first stories should be about the name "Sloss Holler".
