  1. Ted got me thru the awkward years of Jr. H.s. I would go to our library before school, after school and for “research projects” which I used to read more Ted stories. Back in the late seventies, our school library was still alph-numerical, with the actual magazines by month and year. I wish I could remember what got me hooked that young. But I know because of his works, I am a better man today. And his stories kept me out of trouble in town like all the other guys were getting into..and I learned a hell of a lot more about true life than any classes on any school could have taught me. So sad today’s young people don’t get that, being this modern world, kids and parents alike have there noses so buried in there smart phones,that don’t even say hi on the sidewalks, what a shame. Gone forever.i am grateful for what this man has done for my life.
