I Kept Falling in the Sink (2015)

I Kept Falling in the Sink (2015)


Through the changing times of a booming awakening economy, a young man finds himself on the road with nothing but his wit to support him. But he found that even when times were hard, people like to laugh, and Reg was happy to comply. The title, “I Kept Falling in the Sink," came from one of his jokes. “I used to be a tap dancer but I had to quit - I kept falling in the sink.” Throughout the book the reader will find history of the time from the fifties and sixties "in the oil patch", stories of mobile life in the seventies and eighties to jokes and quips of a man and his family, including a school teacher wife and their experiences in an oil boomtown. Their life, filled with music and laughter, was also one of many challenges and loss. Since this title is the punch line to one of Reg Ross’s many jokes, I guess this book is the punch line to his life.

The book is such fun! I shake the bed with my stifled giggles as I read at night, trying not to wake my sleeping husband.
