Straightforward and laced with comic hyperbole and humor, the stories focus on the personality of his father recognizing his frustrations and attempts to get ahead and describe myriad situations and exacting details that validate the mans inventive and near genius quirkishness.

Weaving in and out of accounts of his own experiences as a young rural kid and part-time farm boy, he also familiarizes us with his mother, his extended family of relatives and himself. Shaffer likes to refer to his parents by their first names and is not afraid of using artful figures of speech and cliches of the day to deftly paint his characters from a palette that is both creative and poetic.
