Boomers ten years older or ten years younger missed the window to a transition that passed through a perfectly imperfect parallel universe, where the time lapse between relaxed rules and official corrective enforcement was wide open, when the acknowledgement of a second class demographic was beginning to open, and before that window of transition ultimately closed forever.

Liberty flowed through the Flynn Brothers and other unwitting youngsters as a catalyst that inspired multiple forays into an experience spectrum ranging from the hilarious to the horrific. Participants of these unlikely forays were safeguarded into adolescence by a dominant but vulnerable middle class culture rooted in family, faith, trust, and tolerance.

Lumpy Pie is a mostly happy, sometimes violent fictional journey through the vanished transitional era of an idyllic neighborhood in small town southeast Florida. Foggy memories of fast moving events and independent attitudes are depicted through a perspective limited by adolescence, mobility, and demographics.
