This is an unusual story by a fan of comedian Soupy Sales. While she started out as just a fan, events in her life happened in such a way, that she ended up being a supportive friend of the comedian. Her recounting of these events, as they relate to Soupy, is based on entries in her journal that she kept for over 50 years, as well as unforgettable memories saved in a special corner of her mind. It reveals the Soupy Sales his viewers did not know - his kindness to everyone, his character, and his love for his fans. Although this book is based on the memories of the author, it honors those who started Soupy's Los Angeles fan club and opened up their hearts to another fan. It also gives credit to Soupy himself, who welcomed her as part of the fan club, and then, as a friend. Chapters are based on experiences at personal appearances, studio visits, recording sessions for one of his record albums, and several visits with him at the front door of his home (which sounds very much like the plot of his TV show). Then, there were the 34 lost years that ended in an unexpected turn of events. Soupy's warmth and character are revealed in the anecdotes and stories told throughout the book. In conclusion, it is a personal tribute to a warm human being, who just happened to make us all laugh. Although Soupy is gone now, his memory and lasting impression on comedy are not. This book is the author's way of sharing personal memories with Soupy's fans, so they can get a glimpse into the man who was the comedian they loved.
