McManus Index Spend more time laughing, less time looking
It wasn't long until I found another one at the local library, Rubber Legs and White Tail-Hairs. I was laughing so much reading the story "Pigs" I thought they were going to ask me to leave.
I bought a few more books and every year at our family reunions we made sure to set aside time to read a few of his stories.
I spent the next 12 years (as time permitted) compiling a database of all the stories; the main topics, main characters, and events.
The index was finally published in 2011 and is available on Amazon.com and Barnes & Nobles' website.
I've helped hundreds of people find their favorite stories. My index has even helped Patrick find stories he can hardly remember writing.

If not directly inspired by McManus my designs try to reflect the passions and ways of life of those who love the outdoors.
If you're looking for unique, customizable gifts with a quirky sense of humor you're sure to find something at the Bim Toggle store. T-shirts, mugs, pillows, hats, magnets, buttons;the list is too long.
