Want to go back in time? Humorist Jerry Harju tells how it was when kids could bring knives to school but not marbles. And what was on the menu when his father was the first stay-at-home dad. Jerry will jog fond memories of 1940's radio commercials and Christmas goodies, the Great Depression Syndrome of saving string and tinfoil, when the phrase "trick or treat" had teeth in it, and, yes, even some jail time. "Way Back When" is a collection of selected essays published in the Mining Journal, Upper Michigan's largest newspaper. Book jacket.
