 About the Book 

If you walk across the kitchen with a piece of well-buttered bread in your hand and you drop the bread, you would hope that it lands Butterside Up. It seems my life has been very much like that.Dr. Richard A.

It seems my life has been very much like that.Dr. Richard A. Clay was a retired ophthalmologist and fifty-year prominent cataract surgeon, born on Halloween, 1918, at the end of World War I and only one week before Armistice Day. His book is as a narration that explores over ninety years of growing up during the development of radios, sports clubs, bright colors, aviation, travel, fast food and church-oriented families, compared to modern day electronics, dissemination of news, fast and widespread travel, plus common attendance at distant schools and universities-the world is getting smaller. Dr. Clay was very happy and content with his lot in life, loved the Boy Scouts, travelled extensively, and greatly contributed to eye care and eye education in Oklahoma. His experiences through nine decades in America, the worst of depressions, and two world wars provide material for his stories. Dr. Clay passed away January 7, 2012, soon after finishing the revisions to this book.Erma Bombeck stated, If I had my life to live over, I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth. Consider this my official rambling.
