See what others are saying about Rick and a Fine Day for a Drive.

A Fine Day for a Drive is great medicine for over-worked and tired-out people. Prepare to laugh until your face hurts as you enter the quirky and endearing world of Slim Shambles, a shop owner with plenty of secrets and ample style. More cleansing than bran akes, this is one of those books you won’t just read, you’ll find yourself reading it to others. Don’t buy a copy – buy a dozen copies for your friends.
Phil Callaway
Speaker and best-selling author of Laughing Matters 

Rick is a phenomenally gifted writer who also just happens to be an everyday mechanic. It’s this back porch reality that gives his work such credence. I already recognize some characters from my own hometown – I just hope I don’t see myself… all three thumbs up!

Rick Cogbill makes me laugh…is is a laugh-out-loud book that celebrates the believably absurd. Slim Shambles rides the lead car as grand marshal in life’s giant parade of fools. And I, for one, will gladly take my spot on the sidewalk to watch Basil, Tooner, Beanie, and the rest of the gang pratfalling their way down the street.
