For the Books theme May 20: Over a period of about 30 years, my late father penned several books of poetry (some under the pen name of “Slim Acres” and others under his real name of Harold Pickett), drawing on his country roots in Ohio and Indiana for sage advice mixed with humor. Happily, I've collected almost all of them over the years, and they have a special shelf of honor in one of our bookcases. And yes, he was still writing until a couple of weeks before he passed away at age 96.
