I loved this story. It had me laughing. It painted vivid pictures. It gave a clear glimpse into this part of your life. It had me in tears at the end. What a fascinating, probably sometimes frustrating, man your father was. He sounded very loving too. You must miss him and the adventure he brought into your life. Every sentence was polished yet not precious or feeling premeditated – just natural story telling. I can’t wait to read more.
What a story – what a guy! You certainly don’t have to go far for characters or themes for your stories – it’s all there in your family.
Cool story. Lots of layers.
Your stories have come a long way — sooo polished, the story flows from you to the paper. Really terrific! So happy to see your success.
