Hats Off! to Jim Tobalski whose story, “Musky-in-Law,” is featured in Not Your Mother’s Book…on Family, now out from Publishing Syndicate, containing sixty funny stories that confirm families aren’t always perfect. “Musky-in-law” details a fishing incident gone wrong during a leisurely boat trip across a lagoon with his late mother-in-law. While rowing on Lost Land Lake near Hayward, WI, a twilight bonding experience turned into a battle between fish, man, and mother-in-law. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Tobalski worked thirty-seven years in healthcare communications and now lives retired in Charlotte. He also publishes a blog at where he parodies his relationship skills as a husband.
