Gregory Randall Releases 'Snow On The Pea Soup: And Other Anecdotes'
In "Snow On The Pea Soup: And Other Anecdotes" (published by AuthorHouse), author Gregory Randall shares some of his funniest and strangest stories collected over a 50 year career as an investment manager with a heavily stamped passport and a knack for attracting chaos.
"I tell them as it was, so some of them will annoy important people," writes Randall.
Randall's humorous and interesting stories take readers all over the world, from Chile to the Cook Islands. Ranging from a paragraph to several pages, the stories are short and concise, never staying in the same place for very long. "It's about the odd things which make up human life," Randall says.
An excerpt from "Snow On The Pea Soup":
"One day I was walking with my dog in the very old local churchyard when a lady came up to me and said, 'It's cowled.'
I immediately thought she must have seen the ghost of a monk, as their hood was called a cowl. I couldn't see it, but said, 'How wonderful to see such an apparition. Do you see ghosts here often?'
I later discovered cowled was a local pronunciation of cold."
