Life on Santa Claus Lane
About this book
Here is a collection of wild and zany, hilariously funny stories about the life and adventures of a couple who have lived for over twenty years at a real address on Santa Claus Lane and--what else?--own a Christmas tree farm in--where else?--Texas! Darrell is a lazy, inefficient and ten-thumbed farmer who would rather write or do most anything except farm, even though he's the one who got them into it. Betty is his hard-working, efficient and competant wife. Darrell loves her dearly, and it's a wonder she has stayed with him, considering all the misadventures, escapades and hair-brained schemes he gets himself and his long-suffering wife into. These stories range from ravenous Bed & Breakfast guests who eat them out of house and home, the attack of the killer kittens, couch testing, wreath-making for dummies and many more, related in a style all Darrell's own. If you can get through this book without laughing until your ribs are sore, you are a rare exception and haven't got a funny bone in your body.
Ther eare some humorous moments, but much of this is just too long. I also wish there wre a little more about Christmas in it. But the book is about running a Christmas tree farm. Good natured, but not exceptional.
Mr. Bain is a wonderful writer. He personally signed this book to add to my book collection. You should give this one a read. It is about the Christmas Tree farm that he used to own near where I live.
