The Good Lord Willing...

In 1967, Arlo Guthrie came out with a hysterically funny antiwar song called Alice's Restaurant. His hilarious retelling of how he was turned down for active service in the US army is so wildly, improbably and baroquely messed up that the results are almost impossible to believe.

In The Good Lord Willing Boomer guest, Robert Norris, shares a similarly crazy and convoluted tale of becoming a conscientious objector during the draft days of the Vietnam war.

Robert Norris is an author of three novels and his latest book is a memoir entitled The Good Lord Willing and the Creek Don't Rise: Pentimento Memories of Mom and Me. In his memoir, Robert Norris recalls not only the adventures of his own life, but also wonderfully captures the stories and irrepressible spirit of his mother.

I'm really enjoying listening to your conversation with Robert. I don't know why I haven't listened to all the stories until now, but plan to catch up. I love that you started this program and wonder if I can share with my sister Claudia, who would love this. Let me know Michele. Again thank you for creating " Boomer Bed Time Stories" SMac
