I spend almost three hours a day in the car. Aside from needing to exercise more, I get bored. One of the ways we deal with the tedium is to check out audio books from the library. Today we laughed so hard I almost cried. We listened to Hank the Cowdog and the Case of the One-Eyed Killer Stud Horse, by John Erickson. The first time we listened to this one, my husband had to pull over because he was laughing so hard.
I’ve always loved Hank the Cowdog books, but the audio versions are even better. The author performs them, and I feel as if I’m sitting around a campfire or listening to a radio drama.
(Note to moms: Hank uses the words “shut up” and “stupid,” but he never uses any profanities. A great fun family treat, which will appeal to all ages.)
