This is a fun vignette. Delightful.
Memories are important to everyone and the stories Be told his sons could have conditioned them to expct certain things. The only thing I found odd was that Ben wrote down Bonanza episode ttles such as "The Abduction" and "A Good Night's Rest." I'm going to assume hse were titles he created for sections of his journal. If so, then the whisle series is just epsidoes of Ben's jornal. Or am I reading too much into the story? Nevertheless, an enjoyable piece.
