As he quietly walked along the pier shortly before sunset, he felt the evening breeze start to pick up and blow the humid air into the palm trees. He could hear the rustle of the wind through the live oaks. His cane steadied him on the uneven planks of the narrow pier as he approached the solitary figure sitting at the end.
Meet Mr. Hanson, a spry old codger who has a way of following murder, mayhem, chaos, and affairs of the heart anywhere between Europe and Shea's Cove on the Indian River. Decked out in his red baseball cap with the Gothic H, his brown sweater, and scuffed shoes, Mr. Hanson is ready to travel and enjoy life, but the world always intrudes.
This eclectic collection of short stories teases and surprises, but old Mr. Hanson never disappoints. He shuts the doors to his past and forges ahead to a bright future. He even finds dignity lying in the middle of St. Mark's Square after a pigeon attack. And on a snowy Christmas Eve, he helps drive away depression on a tour bus in Salzburg.
Come meet this tenacious little man and his friends who never fear what tomorrow might bring!
