I am somewhat hard to entertain and it is a bit difficult to hold my attention. So, what I am about to say holds volumes. I love Nelson Lauver's stories and his presentation is unlike anyone I have ever heard. I am mesmerized by the story and I am very entertained awaiting, the next sentence to come from his mouth. I want to compare him to Paul Harvey, but much better. (sorry Mr. Harvey) I also think it refreshing, how I can relate to his stories, and my being from the south. Oh Yeah, they are "American" stories. He seems to tap into the simple way of life and enjoy watching people and mentally recording at the same time.
