What impressed me most...are the intricate and artistic detail with which Art describes the settings and the depth and sensitivity of the emotions expressed in each memoir. Reba Boyd Wooden, Executive Director, Center for Inquiry, Indiana A retired psychologist shares over eighty poignant, humorous, and entertaining memoirs highlighting his life, from his birth at home in Hudson Falls, New York, to his current experiences as a widower and freethinker. Arthur L. Sterne, Ph.D. has spent his life curious about people and as a result, many of his memoirs reflect his power of keen observation and wonderful sense of humor. His compilation of anecdotes begins with his early life in Jacksonville, Florida, then with his experiences at Vanderbilt University where he met Ann, a nursing student who stole his heart and later became his wife of forty-four years, and continues in Indianapolis, where he once saw Judy Garland and Marlene Dietrich perform. As he moves through the retelling of his favorite memories, Sterne covers such relatable topics as politics, religion, aging, and rebuilding a life after the death of a spouse. In Things I Know or Think I Know or Thought I Knew or Who Knows? Sterne encourages others to think, pose questions and look for answers, ultimately viewing the world in a new light.There might be lemonade in a big, porcelain jug with a spout, or maybe there were lots of cold bottled soft drinks in a tub of ice - ice that had been bought in a large block and then chipped away with an ice pick and packed solidly around the drinks. It was really ... There would be watermelon sometimes and at other times, homemade ice-cream in an old-fashioned churn that everyone took turns cranking.
