He's Baaack!

Fame and fortune may come calling, but there's no place quite like Winheld's World! So when my nurse, Frank, (pictured with me outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art last fall) left for another job, it was only a matter of time before he returned. I mean, where else does the opportunity exist for a nurse to work for such a cool guy? (That would be me, by the way!)

Today was Frank's first day back, and while he will only be working for me on a limited basis, Winheld's World will be all the better for it. And, as it turns out, the day of the week that Frank will be with me happens to be the day of most of the Phillies Businesspersons' Specials. It's going to be a terrific summer, indeed!

Welcome back, my friend!

You are truly an inspiration to us all. I believe we have met a few times at Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park, PA. My name is Mitchell Ferstenfeld, Bill Ferstenfeld's son. My father, Bill, who i am pretty sure you know, you might remember was the executive administrator at K.I. for about 25 years. Well,... now that i have introduced myself i just want to make sure YOU keep being YOU... because i respect the hell out of ya for all that you have accomplished and for the grace by which you have done so - as it appears on Winheld's World, anyway, :). Next time, as your picture shows you in front of the Phila Art Museum, look right accross the street and little backwards... and you'll see 2601 Parkway... i used to live there! Hope everything's well with ya... say hi to your father, Michael, for me and my dad, as well.

hi mitch! i had my bar mitzvah luncheon at 2601 parkway, about 100 years ago! I just wrote to your dad this morning. your story is also quite inspiring. i remember all that you went through. you fought against incredible odds to get back to where you are today. i suppose everyone has a little bit of hero in them and when it is necessary, the hero comes out. you should be proud of your accomplishments! josh's dad.
