Don't forget our very own Bob Zumwalts new book, Trapped By A Mouse, available at Lavaca Historical Museum for $15.00 including tax.
An engineering career rich with interesting experiences, people and travel inspired Bob Zumwalt to write many of the stories in this collection.
The stories cover growing up in Hallettsville, dealing with girls, serving in the US Army, getting married, working in the global oil refining business, and retirement.
Some are fantasy stories, such as those day-dreamed by young Bob while hiding up a hackberry tree from his Mom to avoid work.
The title story, “Trapped by a Mouse”, relates how Bob met his wife, Doris, and includes her memorable opening line.
