Lord, this is wonderful. You, my man, have a God-given TALENT!!! What else can I say? Your father would, or would have loved it. I look forward to many quiet hours visiting your portfolio. Thank you for a great read. George D.

Perfect! Not a single misspelling or lapse of good grammar was detected. A vivid account of the mother of all nightmares. Are you English? Write on!

Nicely stated. Finding true love is indeed a blessing that is not bestowed upon all. I count myself lucky. This year I celebrate my 56th wedding anniversary with the girl of my dreams. Thanks for sharing.

Review of My Friend Abby  
Review by George
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Scary, and actually believable! People can sometimes be borderline psychotic when they first reach adulthood. I know because I was one of them. Well written. No grammatical errors or misspellings noted.

You are so right! I'm 82 and I definitely learned a pocket full of new things by reading your delightful account of General Patton and his career. I read somewhere that he was the only ally general that the German high command really feared. Good job. Write on.

Review of Good Morning

Lovely! Strictly speaking, "lay" in the next to last line should read "lie", but the meaning is clear.

I am bed-bound with diabetes, and this little essay truly resonated with me. Thanks for sharing.

Good rhyming and rhythm, and thought provoking, although the general message eludes me. I'll go back and read it again from time to time.

This is an intriguing account of love lost. I won't comment on the possibilities, but I give it 5 stars for human interest. There were a few grammatical and logical errors. For example, "which one of us would die first, her or me" could be better expressed simply as "which one of us would die first."
All told, a powerful first entry to the WDC site. Welcome aboard!

Review of Those Misty Eyes  
Review by George
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
Vampires is not my favorite genre, but this vignette is as good as any I've read. It answers an interesting question: What happens when a vampire falls in love with his/her victim? Prosit! (Yipes!)

Beautiful! Expresses my own feelings exactly. It was in last night's news that bunkers for America's political elite are being prepared during the present COVID19 pandemic, in case the nation is attacked and destroyed by a massive nuclear assault. The nations of the world MUST change their ways, or else ...

Thanks for sharing. Your portfolio is truly remarkable in volume and quality. I will certainly revisit it many times.

Review of Homecoming  
Review by George
Rated: ASR | (5.0)
Very touching. I feel there's a special place for unforgiving fathers, and it isn't in Heaven. You might enjoy my own take on the subject. It's a short story called "Rafferty's Present", #2210331, and it could really use a review by someone with an obviously good command of the English language. I hope that Lottie's decision, after returning, brought her happiness. Best regards, George Dixon.

Review of Bass  
Review by George
Rated: 18+ | (4.0)
I'm not sure I understand this, but I assumed from some of your poems that you're female. Well written, if R rated. I didn't quite get the bass thing. All told, an interesting detective vignette. But definitely not for the small fry.

Somber and reflective. Experienced by many who have visited a ghost town. The germs and virus lines are particularly a apropos in the present Corona-virus pandemic. Thanks for sharing.

Review of Mr. Hyde's Awake

Gruesome as intended. I guess I didn't know Mr. Hyde was so thin-skinned. Keep on venting! Eventually the sun will shine.

Review by George
Rated: E | (5.0)
Excellent! This poem has everything: rhyme, rhythm, and a generous serving of food for thought. And I love the rhyming of "again" and "pain." When I was a young reader of poetry, 7 years old or so, I balked at the rhyming of "again" and words like "pain". 'But "again" is pronounced like "men"' my youthful mind would complain. And then I got a piano teacher who pronounced "again" to rhyme with "gain." She's the only person I've ever known who did so. But it was enough for me. The pronunciation lives on in poetry, and every time I encounter it I am reminded of Miss Merritt. the dear soul who introduced me to the wonderful world of music.

Ah, yes, who hasn't had a Teddy Bear at some time in their life? I'd love it if you'd write a companion piece on the history of the Teddy. As always, your commentary is well written and a pleasure to read, even in this off-Christmas season. Only one glitch spotted: "He doesn't even a burn mark..." should read "He doesn't even have a burn mark..."? Thanks for sharing a much deserved appreciation of what is probably the granddaddy of all gifts to the small fry (and sometimes to the not so small). Wishing you a happy St. Patrick's day, Old George.

I read "Never Push Over a Tombstone," and was indeed disturbed by the outcomes. Not bad. A few errors. For example, in the opening paragraph "...it must true" should probably read "...it must be true." Keep writing. And it can never hurt to carefully proofread your work before adding it to your portfolio. Best regards, George Dixon.

for entry "The Moon and Me
Review by George
Rated: ASR | N/A (Review only item.)
This piece captures the many facets of the moon. The minor of God's lights has inspired songs, poems and literary works since the dawn of humanity. When I was young I memorized and played Debussy's "Claire de Lune," to the great amazement and admiration of the girl I was courting and who became my wife. One of my favorite songs is "Moon River." As always, a pleasure to read your blogs. I give it 5 stars. George.

Good account and good writing. A couple of misspelled words (e.g. "past" should read "passed"?} Aside from that, an excellent read. It was especially interesting to me since I've always found trade fairs to be sexy affairs. All the females seem to be attractive.

Review of Poetic Pieces  
for entry "Winter's Grip
Review by George
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
You nailed the essence of winter, particularly in the lives of trees. But as Annie sang, "The Sun'll come out tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun." The last line reminds us that Spring will come again, and the trees will be graced by buds and nests of baby birds. Thanks for sharing.

Review of Modern Stars  
Review by George
Rated: E | (4.0)
I loved this poem. In my mind (and perhaps in yours) it's a metaphor for girls who aren't rock divas or poster-pretty. An excellent message to young men who are thinking about marriage. Thanks for sharing.

This is one of the most touching accounts I have ever read about the loss of a loved one. My wife and I celebrated our 55th anniversary last December, and every day I say a silent prayer that I go first. I don't know if I could make it without her. Thanks for sharing such a private period in well-constructed and readable prose. George Dixon.

Review of Move  
Review by George
Rated: E | (4.5)
A nice and metaphorical commentary for the descent into addiction. One concludes that your friend was able to get back to normal ... quite an accomplishment in view of what I know about the subject.
