Bath, MI, USA (March 9, 2016) -- Marvin Francis Fouty's Breezy with a Chance of Mixed Metaphors - Parodies, Poems, Palindromes, Personal Memoirs introduces a boy, growing up in Lansing and Houghton Lake, Michigan, an early life with grandparents during World War II and its aftermath and how the war colored their lives. They are heartfelt poems and memoirs so their stories don't disappear from memory.
I began writing family memoirs two years ago and sharing them with my family and friends. My memory goes back to the years before World War II. I was four years old in the summer of 1941 and have vivid memories of my maternal grandparents, Peter and Maren Sollid and my fraternal grandfather, Clell Fouty. Peter and Maren had ten children, my mother, Dorothy, and her sister, Gunda, the oldest girls. They talked about their early years, growing up on the farm in Eaton County in the 1920s and early 1930s.
