H L Wegley: Colby and MeColby and Me: Growing Up in the 50’s


Released: November 23, 2009

“Colby and Me is a collection of true adventure stories drawn from the extraordinary lives of two best friends who believe that they grew up in the finest place at the greatest time ever to be kids—in southern Oregon during the 1950s and early 1960s.

By the time H.L. was six years old, he and Colby had become best buddies who shared a love of the outdoors as well as all things that exploded, burned, or shot. H.L. shares both humorous and heartfelt stories as he chronicles many of their hair-raising adventures beginning in the little country church where Colby’s shameless hound, Pal, entered one Sunday morning and walked the aisle—seemingly to receive his penance—but in reality, just wanting to sit next to his beloved master. In a time when kids were free to simply be kids, H.L. details how the boys explored mountaintop limestone caves, built a rocket that went awry, and viewed a meteorite that they were sure indicated the arrival of aliens.

The amusing tales of two rambunctious boys in Colby and Me highlight a time in history when children learned valuable life lessons simply by experiencing one amazing adventure after another.”
