Book Description

Bob’s skills are soon challenged when he retires to Nova Scotia where he buys a Christmas Tree Farm in Lunenburg County (The Christmas Tree Capitol of the World).   Totally unprepared for life in the country, he decides to muddle through, and some of his muddles are hilarious.  Coping with bats and mice, wayward turtles, misplaced trees, and household emergencies, he gets involved in some strange (for him) predicaments and resorts to some desperate measures.  His keen sense of humour shines through in this rollicking account of his misadventures.

Born in Nova Scotia, Robert (Bob) Nice retired from the Military in 1986.  Having served for many years as a Military Policeman, he felt he was prepared for anything.  Bob has traveled extensively but he and his wife Dianne and their two dogs and three cats are now happy to make their home in Lunenburg County.  Bob has often been called upon to act as Master of Ceremonies and entertain with his stories.  For years friends have been urging him to write a book, and he finally has.
