As y'all know, I love Duck Dynasty. In a reality world with name-calling, back-stabbing, hair-pulling, and bed-hopping, I find the Robertsons to be a refreshing change of pace! (Don't get me wrong, I like some drama, too!) Uncle Si has been the breakout star of the A&E hit. While he's been everything from a fashion model to an air traffic controller, yesterday Si added author to his list of accomplishments. His book Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle hit the shelves yesterday.
Si's stories span from days of playing hooky with his brothers to earning good grades in college despite having a hard time making it to class. He discusses his time in the military, how he met his wife, and the blessing of his two children and eight grandchildren.
In an interview with the Christian Post, Si talks about why he chose to pen the tome, as well as the strong faith he shares with his family. Initially, he didn't want to write a book, fearing that he didn't have enough family memories to share with his fans due to his twenty-five years serving in the armed forces. He says, "I was in the military, so I told my wife that I was never there for the kids when they were growing up. And she said, 'oh yeah you were. Let me go get a photo album.' And she was showing me dressed as a bunny rabbit, rooster, and Santa Claus during Christmas time. Personally, I didn't feel that I was there enough."
However, in true Si fashion, he ended up going for it, lamenting, "They just kept bothering me, so I said, OK."
