Messing About with Robb White

Junebug Bailey White was in the store the other day with her cousin. The family has a knack for story telling. Her father's beloved children's books are slowly coming back into print, thanks to his widowed wife. A collection of her brother's writings has also just hit the shelves, also thanks to his widowed wife. In Flotsam and Jetsam, you will find short writings on the absurdity of panty hose, some reflections on the history of personal hygienee, and of course, plenty about his life spent "messing about in boats."
As Ms. White's cousin said, these essays are the perfect length for a bathroom read. I think Robb would be proud.
