Publisher Description

This nostalgic and humorous collection of short tales will inspire you to smile, laugh, and remember. Storyteller and raconteur Robert P. Simpson takes you back in time to events from his childhood through middle age. With the authentic voice of a child as the author shares his mother's smile and how he brought that smile back after  the loss of his baby sister by presenting her with "the most beautiful flowers in the world." He recounts the doubts of a young boy about whether Santa Claus is real, and his foiled plot to discover the truth by counting carrots in the vegetable bin before and after Santa's visit. He shares every kid's nightmare of getting lost and then the joy of finding your way back home again. He captures the mood of summer days swimming with friends, discovering girls, riding bicycles, and dating angst. Coming of age on an epic bicycle trip with high school buddies is described with  stunning clarity. The tales continue beyond childhood, as this patent lawyer turned author explains why it's a bad idea to attend a wine-tasting the evening before the law school admission test, or to tell your prospective bride that you are Italian and can make sauce, when you're actually Irish and can't tell the difference between a garlic bulb and a dahlia bulb. He also explains why it's a good idea to go alone to the wedding of a woman you used to date but who dumped you to marry a doctor. He may be a first-time author, but Bob Simpson's loyal fans say that he paints a picture with his words, and makes them read in color. Friends and fans of Bob's trademark storytelling call these stories of love, family, and friendship "Bob Tales."
