In 1984, Jenkins published Life Its Ownself , whose subtitle is The SemiTougher Adventures of Billy Clyde Puckett & Them. It continues the story of "them," telling of Billy Clyde's career change, from football hero to color commentator, and of the troubles of Billy Clyde and Barbara Jane's marriage which are, according to Barbara Jane, "nothing that a faith healer can't fix."
