What Does Father’s Day Mean To You?
“Father’s Day is June 15, 2014 in many countries. It is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday of June, but it is also celebrated widely on other days. Father’s Day was created to complement Mother’s Day, a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood.” (source)
To me, Father’s Day is a bittersweet day. Prior to August 25, 2012, it was a holiday I loved to celebrate as my dad was not only my dad, but my friend, my mentor, and my hero! This coming June 15, would have been dad’s 85th birthday as well as Father’s Day.
David Sahud was loved and admired literally by ALL who knew him. I can’t think of anyone who didn’t love my dad. One of the things he was well known for was his sense of humor. He was hysterical! I am pleased to say that many have said I inherited my sense of humor from my father!
In his later years, dad participated in many writing groups and even started his own. He wrote numerous short stories that I have compiled into a book as a tribute to him AND to share his wit with others. At first I was going to title the book to please Google. But then I decided to title the book to clearly reflect the content of the stories and the man behind them. No on will ever search for “From Self-Proclaimed Nerd, to Accomplished Executive, to Befuddled Snowbird” but the title could not be more fitting. Who can’t relate to “Life’s Journey Through the Absurd Told With Sophistication and Wise-Ass Humor“?
WARNING: This book causes smiles, chuckles, and outbursts of laughter, Just partway into the book and I felt like there was a part of me in David, or a part of David in me. By the time you’ve finished reading the book you’ll feel like you’ve known him all your life, or wish you had. His humor, experiences, and wisdom are worth my weight in gold. (I say my weight cause that’s a lot of gold.) … buy a copy of the book today, all the smiles, chuckles, and laughter are included free of charge.
Great Read. A well-written humorous read about everyday life situations, that will make you smile and laugh out loud. Great Father’s Day Gift.
COULDN’T STOP READING UNTIL IT WAS OVER, David Sahud’s stories hold universal appeal. I cannot imagine anyone, young or old not enjoying them thoroughly. Whether he is writing about upbringing or careers, relatives or hypochondriacs they capture you. My only regret, I finished the book in one sitting. I want more stories. Give yourself a treat, buy and read this book.
A little off-color, a lot profound, always funny!, This is a great read! It’s funny and poignant and insightful – and did I say “funny”? Mr. Sahud has a twinkle in his eye and compassion in his heart, and that life-view makes for a collection of short stories that will move you and stay with you. Read it in one sitting or come back to it again and again, buy it for yourself or buy it as a gift… Whatever you do, buy it and enjoy!
