We are all faced with challenges in life – some challenges are beyond bearable – like losing a loved one! I lost my beloved dad in August 2012 after a long illness and am still trying to figure out how to live a life without him in it. My dad was my dad, my friend, my mentor…my hero. Dad had a wonderful, sense of humor and captured his wit in the short stories he wrote over the years. After his death, as a tribute to him and to share his humor with others, I compiled his stories into a book of short stories. The reviews speak for themselves. "WARNING: This book causes smiles, chuckles, and outbursts of laughter"; "COULDN'T STOP READING UNTIL IT WAS OVER"; "A little off-color, a lot profound, always funny!", and many more.

From Self-Proclaimed Nerd, to...Accomplished Executive, to Befuddled Snowbird are short stories about Life’s Journey Through the Absurd Told With Sophistication and Wise-Ass Humor. His stories have universal appeal and are thoroughly enjoyed by all who read them. As one of the reviewers suggested, this book would make a great father's day gift. After all, how many ties does one man need? Or mugs? How about giving the gift of laughter? Laughter IS the world's best medicine!

  22. 22. A Labor of Love Actually, the word “labor” is the wrong word because it denotes something painful – like childbirth! This project is anything but painful. It is a TRUE labor of love. My name is Julie Weishaar, and I am one of two very lucky ladies who had the most wonderful father, David Sahud – the author of “From Self- Proclaimed Nerd, to Accomplished Executive, to Befuddled Snowbird“ Dad (“daddy” to me and my sister, Carole-Beth) wrote extremely entertaining stories over the years and was always encouraged to get them published because they were so enjoyed by those who read them. I did get one of his stories published in an offline magazine many years ago (Keeping up with Technology) but as life always got in the way, he never did get around to publishing his stories. After he passed away on August 25, 2012, I spearheaded this project with our families joyful consent that this would be a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man, while bringing entertaining and engaging stories to the masses so that his talent would not be wasted in a file folder where his stories lived. This book brings to life what is essentially an auto-biographical account of my dad’s life – mixed with tons of hyperbole as part of his creative genius.
