The World's Luckiest S#!* Magnet
Geoffrey Engels, author
Al Capp was a cartoonist who drew a strip called “Lil Abner” One of the characters in the strip was Joe Btfsplk. Joe was well meaning, but was constantly followed around by a black cloud that brought misfortune and chaos everywhere he went. This is the story of a guy, who, like Joe, was followed by misadventure and misfortune, yet managed to not only survive, but end up very lucky. Actually, he was lucky to survive! Written with a sense of humor, you’ll find yourself chuckling on one page and having your hair curled on the next. Find out how someone could have 3 tours in SEA, fly 650 combat missions, be awarded 22 Air Medals, 2 Distinguished Flying crosses (one each in the largest and smallest aircraft used in Viet Nam), and the Silver Star, yet be RIF’d and reinstated, spend 18 years and then retire as a Captain in the Air Force. Follow along as our modern day Joe goes from adventure to misadventure, with his magnet instead of a black cloud following him, yet somehow manages to survive with the help of Ralph, his Guardian Angel.
