This book is a result of entertaining various audiences over 60 some years by Mr. Ellis. “My hope is that much laughter is generated in these pages. The patience of my wife, who’s heard most of these jokes numerous times is much appreciated. My thanks go out to the folks who laughed at the audacity of me telling some of these stories & lines.
Your laughs were a tonic for my soul.” If I may quote the late Bud Reese, entertainer from Kirksville, Mo. “Don’t try to hold in the laughter, it might go down & spread your hips!”
