Love is superior, family is mighty, and we were put here, not for ourselves, but for each other. These are the core values that were passed down to me from my grandfather. Don’t chase the chickens, because one day, one might just chase you back; beer is more than just a breakfast drink; and do what you want, not what you’re told — these were also some things of value that were passed down to me from Grandpa. Growing up just down the hill from my grandfather and his chickens taught me more about life than anything that I could’ve learned in school (had I paid attention). Learning how to stand up for myself, to lend a helping hand, to nurture, and to protect the things I love, are just a few of the ons that I learned while crossing that grassy path between his house and mine. Life ons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop is a book about love, family, youth, maturing, and all the learning that happens in between. It is a powerful, humorous, insightful, playful, ornery, and philosophical narrative about perspective and the ons that I have learned from growing up just as ornery as my ornery grandfather and his damn chickens
