Arbor Terrace Willistown author, Glen Ricketts

Are Buffalo Really That Flatulent? And Other Tomes of Wisdom

Arbor teammates got signed copies!

It’s never too late to take on another challenge. Just ask Arbor Terrace Willistown resident Glenn Ricketts.

His second book, Are Buffalo Really That Flatulent? And Other Tomes of Wisdom was just published in May by Outskirts Press. The book is a collection of short stories and musings about family lore, the universe, history and mythology, as well as Ricketts’ reminisces from World War II. (Ricketts served in the U.S. Army in the European theater at the end and just after the war.) Plus, he threw in a few favorite recipes for good measure.

Humorous “reviews” on the book’s back cover offered words of lavish praise from Isaac Asimov (“Mind-bending!”), Douglas MacArthur (“A direct hit!) and Shakespeare (“A classic!”)

This is the third book authored by Ricketts, who turns 99 in July. He was excited to sign his first copy for Arbor team members!

The book is available from Amazon in paperback, hardcover and Kindle editions.
