This book is volume five of McCollough's memoir. Ever since joining a writers' group at the Saratoga Retirement Community in 2006 he has enjoyed writing these short pieces of memoir and commentary entitled VIN YETs. Because most of his "life stories" have been told, this book contains additional commentary on things that interest or annoy him. Every day seems to yield a surprise or two to reflect on. Tom McCollough is a business man who worked for Ross Laboratories for 43 years, the nutrition division of Abbott Laboratories. He was also a Fellow in the National Program for Educational Leadership. He and his wife, Marian, moved from Columbus, Ohio to the Saratoga Retirement Community in Saratoga, California in 2005. McCollough was 85 years old in 2014.
