|About the Book|
A Journal for Lalie is a love story lived through a fourteen year battle with prostate cancer. It’s a not-quite-daily record of Kentucky journalist and Plum Licker David Dick’s love for his wife Lalie, family, Kentucky and her people, a dog named “Cat,” and life. David and Lalie are Kentucky treasures. Their intense love for each other helps anchor Dave’s up and down struggles with PSA scores, radiation treatment, chemo, surgery, female hormone shots, castration, blindness, dying friends and a dying ex-wife. David’s faith is tested and tempered in the long battle. Cat, the hog-hunting Catahoula from Louisiana, is wise beyond her breed and is David’s occasional sounding board and future faithful companion to Heaven or Hell (it all depends where David lands).There is no finer exposition of the inspiring Plum Licker attitude than A Journal for Lalie.
