I love this story. It makes me feel good to be alive, and nostalgic for earthier times, and hungry for Spam and Beer, and any breath of air I can still draw. I love the characters and the way they are written. Who is this guy, this writer? I love him, too.

Oh my. The lovely turn into the long future at the end!

It's funny how, even when the details are clouded by an unfamiliar style of discourse, set in another time and a very different way of life, the essence of the message still comes clearly. How delicious to be transported to a time so strange and far away, yet so familiar.
