A Great piece of writing that shows the love between a father and daughter. Mr. Westfall nails the fun you can have with a simple piece of paper and heartfelt conversation.

You have no idea how privileged we are who know West in person. He is equally funny in real time.

Jim gets to the very heart of a subject; neitherdoes he disdain the liver,kidnys, or sweetbreads.

Really funny with a tad - perhaps more than a tad, of nostalgia. I loved it!

My heart was warmed! Truth be told, my heart required application of a bag of frozen peas just to return it to its normal temperature!
