Wow! Great story! I could easily imagine the tale. I am down South and we have lots of haunted houses and places in Charleston, SC. I love ghost stories!

I was sorry to learn about Bella's passing. She made your life better and supported you unquestionally. She lived a great life and useful life full of love and attention.

I don't know if unquestionally is the right word. But you know what I mean. It is like the way I felt about Buster, my Boykin Spaniel, which is the SC State Dog. When I was an animal control officer, he was my partner. Buster even had his own picture ID clipped to his collar.


We put him to sleep when he was 16 years old. He was very sick from Cushings Disease. I held him in my arms until his big brave heart ceased. I will never get over the loss and can never replace my Buster Brown.

So I know the feeling of loss that never really goes away. I never even trained that liver colored, curly coated, round amber eyed Boykin Spaniel. Spending every waking moment with Buster did the trick. He could read my mind, I swear! You know.

Love,
Lesley

Review of NOT ENOUGH

Hi,
Angus! I love reading your stories and essays. "Not Enough" made me remember that innocent time when we felt safe in our world. Some of us are still aging flower children and always will see the world in our context. You really brought to focus the situations most of us have never seen put into words.

Happy Writing!

This is a great story, Ann. I was an animal control officer, and also a vet tech and your story touched some ouchy spots for me. This is a situation that is all too common and people should know about how animals feel. They have the same range of emotions as we do. I am sure you will beat me in the contest.

Hello! I enjoyed reading your story about Esme's life and adventures. You really know your material, as well. Throughout the story, I would tell myself, "I know what she means." You did a great job with your characters and the story kept me interested. I hope I will get a chance to read more of your stuff. I feel I've come away with something. Good work!
Your friend,
Lesley

I want to join. I always see the best of everyone. Many of my friends are quite odd because I am extremely accepting. When I was writing for the newspaper in NC, I was the only one who liked the Editor. I was even accused of having an inappropriate relationship with him. I just understood him, and accepted he was just a screwball.

Wow! this is a great story! From the very first sentence on, I was absorbed in the plot and the descriptions of the situation. It was a sad ending, but appropriate. When I worked for a veterinary surgeon, we filled up a huge truck full of necessities for the displaced animals. Dr. Bianucci actually went to New Orleans to help out.

Again, I love this story!

Review of Grandpa's Farm

Hi,
I just read your cool story, "Grandpa's Farm." I lived on a farm, raising mules and donkeys, goats,chickens, you name it. Grandpa's life before all of the factory farming and drilling was an example of how folks lived a productive and rewarding existence on a self-sustaining farm. Gee that was a long sentence! I also loved the fact that Grandpa used mules to work his farm. Keep up the good work. I look forward to reading more of your port.

Hahaha! I just read your really cool story, "Santa's Surprise." I laughed so loud, I scared my cat! I love everything about Santa's surprise. The story is well written and the dialog is perfect. I guess the little girl grows up to become a serial killer. You should write a sequel, maybe with the Easter Bunny! I love the ending. My husband also read your story and loves it as much as I do!

I look forward to reading more of your work!

This story, written from the kitty's perspective, is more than likely to win the contest! I loved the dialog and Poe's antics. I found "Poe Edgar Allen," to be funny and entertaining. When I get a chance, I want to read more of your outstanding work. Keep it up!

I found this short piece to be original, insightful and skillfully written. To me, this story presents a good description of God and his reason for creating the Universe. The writer of this story seems to be a very spiritual person. I loved the quote: "No creation is complete until someone enjoys it." Again, I enjoyed this short story.

This is a great story about the feelings of a tree chopped down for Christmas! I've always loved trees and they belong in the ground. You were able to capture my imagination and reminded me that trees are living beings. My husband also likes your story. Keep up the good work!

Your Philosophy prologue sums up how I feel! It seems like you have plenty to write about, too. I also would love to write a book of animal stories. I look forward to reading more about writing your book. I am sure it will be a hit! Keep up the good work. Your book will be an opportunity to accomplish a dream.

Well written and right on the money! I know what you are saying and it shows your enthusiasm for whatever you do. A job should be more than a paycheck. I have been lucky with my career choices. I have been on call, myself, and it sucks. This piece is a good reminder of what is important.

This emotional story makes me think of my mother, who is still very much alive. The story made we think of what I would do in your place. I would like to think that I would ask God to spare her suffering. I am glad He answered your prayers.

This is so true! The corporations are interestined in becoming richer at the expense of everyone else. I know what you mean about the higher in the company you are, the more hours you spend at work. It is more responsibility and takes up a lot of time. I remember when everything was closed on Sundays and holidays, too. Now, you can even buy alcohol on Sunday!

Recycled Advice is so true for all of us! It was as if you were writing about my mother and her advice. Her advice is also recycled many times before she came along. I like the format, as well. I look forward to reading more of your port.

This is a cool story! I love the way you use dialogue. The story was funny, especially when the female dragon dropped in on the story. The ending, when the horse bucks off the knight, is priceless. I will find some time to browse your port!

Lesley

Hideho, again! With my law enforcement background and addiction to true crime novels, I had to read about, "Digging for Clues, part 2." From the tone you set for the reader starts out by drawing us into the storyline. I appreciated the atmosphere you set up for the story. Written like a true law enforcement individual! I can't wait to read more later.
Your Friend,
Lesley
