The Way I See It ~ Jean Beyer
A Lighthearted & Funny Read
At 90, Jean has collected plenty of unique stories to fill three books.
Jean, a natural storyteller, shares his humorous perspective with stories about his nemesis in the U.S. Army, ‘Colonel K,’ encounters with President Truman, drunk customers, an auto accident in the oddest of places, struggles with changing a light bulb (and other home-maintenance tasks), thoughts and lessons on life, the perfect anniversary gift, and more.
Some of Jean’s personal experiences stem from his various careers, such as; a cab driver - "for a day", salesman, window decorator, manager of the Golden Ox in Kansas City, Senior Army ROTC Officer, U.S. Army Ranger, and many others.
Jean’s eclectic resume is matched only by the number of places he has lived. As a child, Jean’s feet were never allowed to take root in a town for long. He has lived in forty-one houses in five countries and spent extended time in eight other nations.
