Narrated by Michael Kramer.
Shepherd recalls humorous episodes about growing up in the northern Indiana steel town of Hohman. When the hillbilly Bumpus family and their 745 dogs move in next door, a stolen Easter ham results in a Shepherd-Bumpus feud. Later, spiffed-up Jean with his seven-pound pompadour goes on a disastrous date with a wealthy classmate. But he manages to top that with a drunken junior prom fiasco. Strong language.
