Hedges, Frank A. Stop, I Need a Time Out (published in 2003 by Sunrise Enterprises, 8191 State Route 124, Hillsboro, OH 45133). Author Frank A. Hedges wrote, “Six persons previewed this book. They were in unanimous agreement that the stories contained in the book were hilarious, and what made them so funny was that virtually everyone reading the book could find themselves in similar situations. They went on to say that this book was probably the funniest book they had ever read with two possible exceptions: Look on the Bright Side and Are We Having Fun Yet. I have absolutely no reason to consider that my wife, two sons, two daughters-in-law, and daughter would not give an honest evaluation.”
Stop, I Need a Time Out is the third book of humorous stories which Frank relates about himself, his family, and his friends. Will he survive white water rafting with family down a raging river, scuba diving with his son in a quarry, and a storm at sea with his daughter on a boat? Frank is a plumbing and electrical supply salesman in my hometown of Hillsboro, OH. As with his previous books, a few common euphemisms occur but no cursing or profanity. Also some of the incidents involve a little earthy “bathroom humor,” but nothing vulgar or obscene. There is just a lot of hilarity. Frank says that he has made his wife Becky famous, but she just says notorious.
