Synopsis: Smack dab in the middle of the 70s and Appalachia, Ted rented a 30 acre farm and inherited a menagerie of animals. Strange given the fact that he grew up in suburban Oklahoma City in the days of "Father Knows Best", never visited his Uncle's farm without having his allergies kick up, and didn't know jack about doing anything demanded of farm life. Another thing, the farm was surrounded by "Varmits." These ne'er-do-wells lived in the hills and hollers of Meigs County, Ohio and became infamous in their own minds for softball playing, cock fighting, dope growing, Grateful Dead listening, free loving, and beer drinking. Ted became "Scoop" to the Varmits through his skills as a first baseman, all the while pursuing a Ph.D. in interpersonal communication at Ohio University back in Athens. This introspective book is Ted's lively account of the adventures of his dual life, attending a cock fight high on mushrooms and giving a graduation address to thousands, skinny-dipping at Varmit State Park and completing doctoral comprehensives, running with outlaws while preparing to become successful in his chosen profession, growing a garden and trying to grow up himself. It was a wild ride, and what he learned about himself being a Varmit has lasted a lifetime.

About the Author: Ted's first paid job was shoveling chicken shit in Oklahoma. He worked his way up to be on the board of directors of an airline, with stints in between as a busboy, waiter, preacher, camp counselor, token white on a black drama team, college professor, state employee, wine company owner, and management consultant. He helped start the Hillsdale Farmers' Market, and now serves on two non-profit boards and has become a master chocolatier. He has published several academic articles, film reviews, magazine and newspaper features, and penned lots of corporate communication. This is his first memoir. Ted lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, Meg, and their yellow lab, Koufax.
