For non-Cleveland residents, Dick Goddard is a (very, very) longtime meteorologist for this area, known for covering the weather, and for the annual Woolybear Festival. I read and enjoyed two of his Almanac books ( I believe there are three total), and this newest book did not disappoint. There are a few things readers of his previous books might recognize (including the inspiration for the title). This is more of a personal take on Dick Goddard's life and experiences in the television business and with his favorite causes- the aforementioned festival, animal charities and animals in general. Most of the stories are very light-hearted and funny, although there are one or two more somber ones (such as his recollection of the time when he lost both his wife and mother around the same time). There also are many stories from other local Cleveland television people, particularly Robin Swoboda, Tim Taylor and "Big Chuck Schodowski, many of them absolutely hilarious. Weather buffs, Ohio history buffs and those looking for a fun, educational and entertaining read will enjoy this.
