Sometimes you gotta create your own funhouse.
BY THE PARK is our Tumblr for memes & funny stuff.
We've got an official FLY CROOKED Tumblr for bookish, artist, free-spirit things we find inspiring.
Of course, this JAMES & JENNIFER PROJECT could go epic someday, so we've got a Tumblr for that, too.
And, oh yes, we're on PINTEREST.
It's all smoke & mirrors to get you to laugh, like us, and buy our book(s)!

Right now he’s perplexing both me and his teachers by refusing to write anything down on paper. The child feels, if things are for sure in your head, then there’s just no point in writing them down. He thinks you should be able to just say answers out loud.
I glance over at Barbra, my daughter who’ll soon turn 5, seated next to me. She’s had…
It. Is. Funny.
You. Will. Cry.
Now available in paperback and Kindle edition -- where it's accumulating five-star reviews -- the debut collection by William A.
