>> In Tales from the Red Pump, Thomas Wayne King combines his considerable skills as a writer, storyteller, and historian in ways that are interesting, informative, and moving. An example of the latter (in his tale Best of Show, pages 30-34) has to do with the large toad that escapes the rotary blades of his power lawn mower on their forested property, and becomes a cherished pet of his then four- and six-year-old sons. I won't spoil the fun and poignancy of the Tubby Toad story, but there is a much larger meaning to it.  Thomas writes "We learned how even the humble and mundane, with imagination and love, can indeed become Best of Show." Above all, Thomas Wayne King is a teacher. As he writes about his family history, he will challenge you to learn, and to teach others. We would do well to follow his inspiring example.
