The Doggone Christmas List – Local Author’s Holiday Humor

Robb Lightfoot has tales to tell, and just in time for Christmas. “The Doggone Christmas List – and Other Stories” offers 13 short stories to amuse. Drop in on negotiations with Santa, travel in circles with Dad’s new GPS ‘Miss Directions,” and learn Grandma’s secret tips for bending the rules. There’s a thrift-shop trip that scores a Velvet Elvis, and a get-rich-quick scheme using old Christmas trees. And learn how the Mayans tried to warn us….about fruitcakes.

Lightfoot finds the holidays a particularly funny time of year, and his stories seek to capture the season.

“Humor helps us get through the tough times,” Lightfoot says. It’s a theme seen often in his weekly humor column, Or So It Seems. Lightfoot’s work also has been published in The Funny Times. He finds the holidays an especially frentic time.

“There’s so much to do, travel, shopping, decorating,” Lightfoot said. “It helps to be able to laugh,” he said. “I know when I am talking to the dog… and expect an answer, it’s time for a breather.”

Take a break, and treat yourself to this quick, light-hearted look at what we endure this time of year.

The digital book is available exclusively on Amazon’s kindle for purchase or rental. But if you’ve not yet made the ebook plunge, you can download a free reader for your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry or Android.

    I'm so glad Robb is a part of our cyber landscape. Our very own Dave Ber. . . . nope, not gonna go there. Robb is a delight all on his own. He doesn't need to ride on anyone's coat-tails.

    I'm going to go power up my Kindle right now!!!
