Hideho!

I am a plain writer, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

At the begining, the phrase "I came around". Do you think you could find a more creative way of writing it?

I've been taught not to use "was" or "There." because the words don't describe much. You have the talent to write a better discription.

I thought the ending of the story was great! If I were a man, I'd use the card. I have done that before and we had a wonderful time.

Hideho! Mo!

What a wonderful gift you just handed over to me. Maybe I will become less bored and win some more contests. Your story about the mule, of anything prospective up to three lines will win the contest. I think it is worth writing. Jrreese is the sponsor and he has three seporate contests. I would love to win the contest. I wrote the three sentence one about , jeeze, I forgot. Anywy, write to some of our friends and see if they can help jreese catch up. He needs a certain number to finish for awards and he only needs one more.

Check him out.

Again,
Thanks so much for giving me such a generous gift of points. I will use them to buy you some raffle tickets and surprise you with other gifts. You are just being so sweet,
Love,
Lesdonks

It is flattering to have a writer such as yourself notice me.

Review of Wolf Sig  
Review by Lesley Scott

Rated: E | (4.5)
Hello, Mo,

I love the wonderful painting of your wolf portrait. Did you do it? I can't remember who set it up. I think it was MaryAnn and Ledger gave us a hand. I hope Teargen isn't made at me for using it so much. I have noticed he has used it about 20 times. I will drop him a note and thank him, but I'm afraid he'll make me cry. I cry easily. That is why I don't understand some of the animal neglect stories. I guess I wrote them because I wanted people to know what is really going on up their noses.

I love the color of the wolf's eyes. The one we had in the Animal Forest, Craig may have weighed 200 pounds. He had extremely long legs, a large body, a beautiful coat of a mixuter of silver gray and outer hair of long black top coat. I swear, I'll bet he could wear my saddle.

But he was very sneaking and untrustworthy. We had to lock them all up in the feeder cages and then we would be able to carry the food down the later. He ate dry dogfood, canned dogfood and Nebraska, which is basicly ground up horse guts. For snacks or showing them off, I would throw a couple of chicken backs in the pen and watch them jump up in the air and snapp them down. I never trusted them anyway. There was something about the way they walked, how they would glare at me with those yellow eyes and even tried pulling Beverly through a small hole where we clipped on the food pan.

Keep writing, my friend,
I have a feeling you will make a great writer. You pay a lot to attention a descripion and I hate details. What a pair. I think that would work well. Of course I want to meet all of y'all. You just struck me with your great port.

Yours,
Hee Haw

Review of Darwin  
Review by Lesley Scott
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (3.5)
Hello, pragyayo,

I just read your "Script" about Darwin. I hope you have continued and I will have more to read. My husband and I have "Origin of the Species," and a couple of other Darwin books. He was so ahead of his time! You included some well-researched facts and proposed questions, as well. I also have read most of Desmond Morris's books, "The Naked Ape," "The Human Zoo," "Talking to Horses," "Human Behavior," and others. He suggested that we humans have earlobes for erotic reasons. Licking or sucking on earlobes can give one chills of pleasure sensations. Also, the idea of sex being monogamous is the pair bonding, which is why we enjoy sex.

Keep up the good work!

Yours,
Lesley Ann

Hideho, Lynda!

I just read your cute short story, "For The Love Of Dogs." I had to laugh out loud, especially when your friend's dog did the same thing! My cats used to do that when I had about 15 of them, but my two don't seem to want to jump on the table. Noodle has a bad leg and pelvis, so she can't jump up. My Maine Coon cat would probably do it though.

I've owned many, many, many dogs. In my animal control career and being a vet tech, I've probably dealt with hundreds, or probably at least one thousand dogs and cats. I lived on a farm, so I brought some of them home. I am going to include a story I wrote about my Boykin Spaniel. Please look it over when you have a few minutes. I also have a couple of exciting and humorous alligator stories.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Review of Dogs  
Review by Lesley Scott
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hello, Purseman55,

I saw your short story called simply, "Dogs," and I had to read it. I found it to be entertaining and interesting. I never knew really what Boxers were bred for. I figured it had something to do with their tenacity. I was surprised to learn that the folds around a boxer's mouth were to keep blood out of his mouth.

I have worked with possibly thousands of dogs as I was an animal control officer for about ten years. The horrible cruelty I've seen, you don't want to know about. But when I worked for Goose Creek P.D. my Boykin Spaniel, Buster was my partner. All of the cops and former Marines loved him and spoiled him with treats. I think I will enclose my story about me and Buster.

Your Friend,
Lesley Ann

Review of Roadkill  
Review by Lesley Scott
In affiliation with disABILITY WRITERS GROUP  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hello, 2chezpique,

Your title, "Road Kill," the more you drive the more you know it's a hungry road. The poem was catchy and original and the subject matter means something personal to me. When I was an animal control officer, I had to pick up messy roadkills, dead animals from under houses and even floating in ditches. I've seen all sorts of different stages of decomposition. Even now, I can glance at a roadkill and tell you exactly what it is. I should write a book about keying out Roadkills.

Now that I am in the city, I haven't seen a roadkill in almost 10 years. I am glad people are finally keeping their pets safe. Every now and then we go to Moncks Corner and I see a few, and even alive animals on the road.

Thanks for the funny poem. I won't forget it.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Hello, Vet,

I just finished reading your essay, "Pets and Their Behaviour." I can tell you have much more experience than the average pet owner and the reasons you listed how pets improve our quality of life is exactly the truth. I used to live on a farm with lots of livestock, poultry, rabbits, dogs, cats and kept three registered jacks for stud. Mules are different than any animal I've ever worked with. It takes a special frame of mind. But once a mule understands what his owner is asking, he will perform. I learned that from training mules and donkeys for show.

I used to be a newspaper reporter, colunmist, assistant editor for my college newspaper, president and founder of the Berkeley County SPCA and president and founder of the South Carolina Donkey and Mule Society. I also was a vet tech at the Veterinary Emergency Hospital and vet tech for a Board Cerified Veterinary Surgeon, among other things.

I learned from working with wildlife at the Charles Towne Animal Forest how to "read" the animals. It was easy. I just paid attention to their body language and expressions. I've had a few close calls, but quick thinking and understanding the animals' motivation kept me safe.

I am including a couple of my short stories. Do please read them. I hope I'm not harrassing you.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Hello, Marci,

I just finished your short story, 'My First Love." I found the story to be moving and full of love and positive thinking. I think falling in love at church is the ultimate courtship. I had crushes on a few of my fellow male members of the church and we flirted in Sunday School.

Your story is very touching and I wish the author or you, another blissful 15 years.

Hello, there, Zoe Ross,

I just finished reading your moving short story, "Home Front." The name is perfect since Mellissa's home was, indeed, a war zone. When I read the first few sentences, I was drawn into the drama and was sorry when it ended. It was a happy ending, yet abuse can return at any time or her mother may have terrible taste in men. I feel sure her daughter has already learned to stay away from these violent and controlling psychopaths.

It is a good story, worth reading for anyone.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Review of Buffalo Spirits  
Review by Lesley Scott

Rated: E | N/A (Review only item.)
Hello, turtlemoon,

Is that a Native American name? I think it is really cool. I just finished reading your poem, "Buffalo Spirits," and you were able to tell so much from just a few words. I remember reading that when the railroad plowed through the plains, a heard of buffalo would last for three days. The red necks (back then) made a sport of shooting them to watch them crumble.

I have a special love for buffalo. I raised a buffalo calf when I worked at the Charles Towne Landing Animal Forest. I would love for you to give it a quick read. It was the first story I wrote when I joined WDC.

Your Friend,
Lesley

Hideho!

I don't think I will be doing any Midnight strolling any more. The story, "A Midnight Stroll," led me to believe that someone just wanted the night air to clear his thoughts. The man disarmed the woman with a charming smile and a harmless and nice manner. I thought, at that time, he was going to score with a hooker. I loved the surprise ending, though I should have guessed. Good Job!

Hideho, Acme!

I just finished reading your alligator story, "White Elephant." I am so glad I'm not the only one who writes about alligators. I found your story's plot interesting and I enjoyed reading it. I will enclose a link to my alligator story and maybe you would have time to read it and give me a review.

I am impressed by your writing versatility. I am am an ex-newspaper reporter and also animal control officer, plus a myriad of other careers. So I tend to leave stuff out of my mainly non-fiction animal stories. I loved the ending of your story, as well. I have an alligator purse and shoes, too, even though I am opposed to hunting the big ones. They are the breeders and the smaller ones (5 to 8 feet) have a better hide and taste better.

I think you will enjoy this:

Hello, Netghost,

I just finished reading your funny short story, "This and That." I didn't realize we were allowed to use the F word. I don't use it much, anyway. I used to and my parrot said in front of my mother, "What the F...?" I never used that kind of lanuage again and he has stopped it too.

I especially liked the part of your story, "You're holding my dick and you're telling me I'm the one making it awkward?" Such a prize sentence. I haven't entered this contest yet, but even if I do, I can't beat your cool story.

Hi, Tina,
You are one of my favorite authors. Didn't you join the Power Reviewers for a while and checked the stories in the ports to write reviews? Or was that another Tina? We are so bad about last names, here.

I am looking forward to becoming a part of the DisABILITY WRITERS BOOK. I think I have a lot to share about the problems caused by my disabilities and the good stories I write. I mostly write about animals, since my whole life has revovled around them. I raised baby animals at the Charles Towne Landing Animal Forest, animal control officer, dental assistant, office manager, caregiver for exotic animals, kennel cleaning, dog bathing and of course, a veterinary technician. I use experiences from those few vocations. I will try to send you a story or two if I can.

Hello, Tim,

Your lovely poem, "A New Year is Upon Us." I see some of it in myself, as I try hard to stay motivated and see the best of anything. I am looking forward to the New Year as much as I can. The StoryMistress banned me from certain sites a couple of years ago. Now, she's gone further and I can't access the contests I was able to get into. So I am fighting depression and anger. All I did was send her too many emails and goofed up on a review and I am being punished for two years now. I paid for the access to everything an Upgraded member is entitled to but I can't access but a few. I want to let them know how I feel and ask them to reinstall my privileges. Do you know who I can contact that is not involved? It seems like nobody wants to get on her bad side, so they don't speak up in my behalf.
I liked the last of your poem, "Moving Forward Into the foreseeable future. Good work!

Lesley Ann

Have you noticed that you, or we don't, find any honey bees around here? I sometimes see a few drones, but not the honey bees. I wonder what that will bring. Who will pollunate my vegetitables? They are experientic with "Genetocoly Alternet genetic" vegetables, meant to keep insects away. What will it do to our food suppy? We need some inscects. The growth of our planet depends on polination plan. It is the way God creatied out earty to thrive.

Again, I love you poem. I may later would like to use some phrases in later work. Is that okay. I will give you the cedit.

Review of Autumn leaf  
Review by Lesley Scott
In affiliation with WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group  
Rated: E | (4.0)
Dear Kellie,

Your poem about the leaves falling to the ground brought back some old memories of Felix Salton's book, "The Forest." It centers around two leaves talking on the tree, wondering who will fall first. In about a day, the weather grew colder and the smaller leaf fell first.

He spiraled and landed on the soft, lichen covered root. "It isn't so bad,' he hollered to his friend. It is like a different world down here. Nobody will eat us because we are not green. That story has been in my mind since sixth grade. At first, it was sad, but I remembered how the stray leaves mulch and nature our grass.

I particually liked the last part of the poem: "Precariously the leaf angled on attached limply to though the crooked branch, Defiant, the leaf cluched on not lamenting its roots, but showing the strong colours of its origins in a hopefulness of all."I found that phrase to be touching and will never forget it again.

Your Friend,

Lesle7

Hello, DRSmith,

I knew I would like your writng so far. Your offbeaf stories are addictive. "One book of you're deturaled books, "The book of survival of those who believe. I would like to be considered. If not, I will work extra hard to turn the place into a better enviorment.Maybe our ideas could help the greatest problem, Canned Hunting." This type of hunting is deporable. The exotic animals will stand peacefully and become bewilderd and shocked that those who have bottle fed them and transfered them for lazy hunters. Many, including a formar Vice President spends hundreds of dollars a year to keep this practice popular. Write to your reputrasentacle person and also, to everyone you can work on that these animals are not free to roam, but free to hunt.

Hello, Itchy Water,

I honestly think your story and presenting it will lead to more quality care for the poor animals tied out in a spare spot, thinking he or she will eat the grass that is sprouting. We've had a good bit of rain these past three or four days. I spent all of yesterday afternoon trying to change the stories. I always enjoy reading your emails and lucky to be able to sign the petition.

Keep an eye out for the pictures I send. I tend to write non-fiction stories about rescuing animals that have been mistreated and/or it is time to correct my mistakes. I am glad you took the time to read some of my rescue stories. I am flattered that you are so kind about my writing.
