No Place for a Married Man with Kids
by Nipper Guest
What’s life without a little adventure? The odd death-defying stunt? The occasional trek to the brink of civilization?
For author Nipper Guest, putting his life on the line was often an afterthought. A realization that his choices and travels had brought him to the edge of danger—sometimes at the hands of enemy soldiers in WWII; sometimes at the blade of a Panamanian knife pressing into his belly. It seems that almost everywhere Nipper Guest landed in his ninety-odd years, adventure, and often trouble, arrived shortly thereafter. In the quiet of those moments, he would hear himself thinking, “This is No Place for a Married Man with Kids.”
No matter how you slice it, Mr. Guest has lived a life to be envied. No Place for a Married Man with Kids tells his tales in his own voice, as a series of fun short stories, anecdotes, and musings. From his time as a volunteer soldier in WWII to his lengthy career as an engineer, to the friends and family he cultivated along the way, No Place for a Married Man with Kids will have you laughing, empathizing, and possibly planning your own escapade…
