Album Notes
Jane Dail Roper has been writing and telling humorous stories for over 4 decades. As a young girl she stood by her mother's side at the kitchen stove where she helped prepare the evening meal. While preparing the supper, her mother would lower her beautiful contralto voice, raise her eyebrows and off they'd go on a magical journey together through the mysterious forest filled with magical butterflies and the parlors of outlandish and colorful relatives. Her mother's dance-like movements and balletic postures still resonate through Jane Dail's stories today. At the famous Stone Soup Storytelling Festival in South Carolina, folks are still talking about Jane Dail's 135 pound Great Pyranee dog who put himself in harm's way to save her from an escaped convict. The similarities that exist between her mother and herself are depicted in two different stories which show the world that these two proud and outrageous southern females are willing to even expose themselves in human public in order to be noticed!!(As long as it is for a noteworthy cause)!

Be ready for a lively, entertaining performance that will leave you laughing uproariously or feeling the soft tears of joy roll down your cheeks...This is a collection of stories that you will be eager to listen to again and again, for they truly take the listener back to a sweeter, gentler time when neighbors waved while passing each other on country roads. She puts on her mama's apron and lays the stage for unexpected adventures that transport ordinary kinfolk into uncommon "heroes." When the listener thinks she knows exactly where the river is going, Jane Dail takes you on a detour that leaves her audience bending over double from a healthy dose of pure, southern humor at its finest!

Got this one in cdbaby's 3 for $15...picked at random and I struck lucky again [can you fail with cdbaby?] Jane Dail Roper is a hoot..a wonderful warm woman with very funny stories to make you howl with laughter...'a wee bit of a problem' being the stand out for me..kind of like a cross between Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood and Rita Mae Brown's Southern Discomfort..and my mother loves it too!


Veery funny
Its Southern story telling at is best! These little stories give you and insiders view into the life of this family and the adventures of the people. Turely a gem!
