Mrs. Bettle has compiled a collection of many humorous stories in Bad Biscuits and Ugly Women, A Roundup of Stories. Some of these tales were passed along from family members while she was growing up in West Texas, and others were personally experienced while encountering the vagaries of military life with her Marine Corps husband. In recent years, while relating these stories to contemporary friends and relatives, Mrs. Bettle has frequently been encouraged to record these tales on paper so that other people might also relish their delightful humor. From funny sayings to actions that didn’t make sense, everyone should find a story to relate to or laugh over in this collection. Readers may read these brief stories one at a time when looking for a smile, or read them all at one sitting for a good time, but either way, they should be prepared for hearty, good-natured amusement.About the Author A native of Balmorhea, Texas, Liz Kingston Bettle currently lives in Lampasas, Texas, with her husband of forty-five years, George Richard (Dick) Bettle.
