  1. ***** Teamwork Old man Corker, short and spindly-legged, was a real character, acting out his thoughts and words like a sideshow clown, apparently not a shy bone in his whole body. The first thing Boone noticed when they rode up with their pack horses trailing behind, was the jagged scar across his neck, and he couldn’t help but stare at a thing that looked like it should have killed him dead. The man, sharp as all get out, must have seen his expression before he dismounted. After a silent greeting, he did a comical version of a war dance, and then a short, quick s

  2. Bubba and I took Sandy to the vets. He was given a vitamin shot and some tablets to take for the next 14 days. She recommended a change in his diet and a new brand of dog food. On the way home, we stopped to pick up dog food and some chews. I then stopped at an artist supply store and bought the large paper that Beth would need and some marking pens. When we got back to Sanctuary, my favorite policemen were there, “I heard that you have a boy from Mexico here?” “Wow, news travels fast.” “We need to talk to him. If he was brought here because of the old slave business, then we need

  3. Morning came, and the kids were excited about the new members. Especially the boys, our girl contingent doubled overnight. Just before breakfast, Murray and O’Shea brought the boy from Europe. His name was Andre. I was in the middle of explaining Sanctuary to Andre when Murray received a phone call. He spoke to O’Shea, and they were gone. As the boys came into the dining hall, I noticed Andre was watching them. And then he stood up and yelled, Noah. Noah looked and was surprised. Andre ran toward him and pulled him into a hug. There were tears in the eyes of both boys. Noah looked at me with a

  4. D’gar sat on his usual bench overlooking the feeding grounds, watching as Herebeth took down his second ovine of the morning. H’rek was off helping fill firestone sacks for the next Fall. He’d need to work out the shifts for that one later. His Wing was scheduled for clean-up duty, so he also had to decide which of his Wingseconds and riders would be working on that. It should be fairly easy; pasture rather than forest, so good visibility and no problems moving around to help the ground crews deal with any burrows. There was another task he had to do as well. He needed to go and see F’lar

  5. I've decided to stay in the Browne Hotel again tonight; it was easier rather than having to move off and find another place to stay tonight. Though I might have to find an alternate place to crash already. It is not overly expensive to stay here, just $72 a night. Eventually, it's going to add up. If I am to make living here a reality, I'll probably have to start skimping and saving. I've already spent a good deal of money getting here, so I need to be more cautious with what I spend. Earlier today, I unloaded everything I own onto the bed from my suitcase to see what I actually brou

  6. “He’s cute.” “Cute? Did you seriously just describe a human as cute?” “But he is-!” “Oh, brother.” The heavy, slithering noise comes again, and when the voice speaks, its closer, softer. “You don’t even know that it’s male. I suppose it is kind of… nice looking. For a human. But so dainty.” Something cold and firm, but not hard, brushes against Keith’s knuckles. “Huh.” “Kuron? What is it?” The other voice, the lighter one, is full of instant concern. “It’s warm. Here, touch.” A hand, a hand too cold to be something living and breathing, lands on his forearm. The

  7. This one was just lovely, Gary! Well worth the wait too. I had been concerned The Lemon of Larkspur was going to sour our guys land deal and I'm happy they avoided it despite his effort. Mr. Corker was a real corker and a joy to do business with. I have the feeling he would decline to sell his horses to someone who might abuse them. "I swear you could talk the sap out of a tree if you set your mind to it." I loved that line! Now another long week of sheer torture. *Sigh*

  8. What better way to start the year than looking back at all these awesome reviews from 2020! If you're looking for new stories to read, maybe one of these reviews from the last year will catch your attention.

  10. Do not be afraid of tears, they are watering your soul in heaven. I read that somewhere but I have forgotten where. You are a very sensitive person. If it makes you feel any better, I wrote this story several years ago and as I am posting, I also have tears in my eyes. Every time I read this story I'm amazed at the level of cruelty that exists in man.

  11. Sidney gently shook Clay’s shoulder and told him it was time to dress and go home. Clay had worn himself out by running around the studio and was now sleeping in the bed of reeds that Sean had made for him. He loved the bed. “Where Eli?” “Eli had to leave for work. We’ll go home and have a sandwich. Okay?” “I want Eli.” “Well, Claymonster, Eli had to go to work and isn’t here. Let’s go home.” Clay crawled out of bed and unwound his body. He started shaking out his arms and legs and then rolled his head around. Finally, Clay shook his entire body and giggled when his penis

  12. The headline led me to expect something different, but what I read had me hooked immediately. I also liked your little trick of looking back on the scene in the office instead of following the timeline. I was wondering all the time why they would be buying horses first. Lemon with his hidden agenda... does not bode well, I'm afraid. I do hope that trouble won't unfold before they have made a few good friends. And I cannot help but think that a pair of watchdogs might be a good idea, too. I love how easy and happy the two of them are now. What a contrast to the constant tension and un

  14. “Fuck, it is hot.” “Jump in the river to cool off.” “Come with me.” Erick slid off the side of the raft into the Chattahoochee River. Todd laughed and asked if he felt better. “Come in with us, Eron and Flo. Timmy and Pate jump in; come on. Let Nash manage the raft for a few minutes.” The guys were enjoying whitewater rafting down the river as they headed toward Atlanta, aka Hotlanta, during the annual Gay Fest. In honor of their time together, Todd had made a batch of “Hooch,” which was essentially corn liquor, but Hooch was also the nickname of the river. Todd had also done

  16. It's currently raining here. It's not all that heavy, but definitely enough to put a temporary stop to my clearing of the vines and ivy on the garden sheds. Hopefully it will clear away as the day progresses but, in the meantime, it looks like I shall have to find some indoor work to occupy me. There's lots of that waiting to be done, anyway! Actually, before I do any of that, I may just take the car for a spin first. I've not used it for three or four days now, and I don't like leaving it standing idle for so long. Particularly in the winter. Hopefully it does actually start...

  18. The semester is off to a great start... Online class scheduled for 11am to 1pm. As a good student I get online 15 minutes before the start, I start looking for the class file.. nothing. A zoom link? Nothing! Email from the professor? NOTHING! I ended up posting on the facebook group and was told the administration had just send an email (at 11.30am!) to our representatives students saying today's class is canceled! Sigh... I'm going back to bed

  19. How about some science to start the new year? New paper on Alzheimer’s and diet has been published. Red wine is protective (boring) but the real winner is cheese. Daily cheese intake strongly predicted better scores. Consuming lamb weekly may also improve long term cognitive outcomes Cheese and crackers followed by bbq lamb chops, just what the doctor ordered

  32. Ah, miss moggy. I miss her too. As well as being a good friend and supportive to the entire site, she was a talented poet and writer. Alas, she had a tough, tough life, and was physically challenged at the end, but still produced some very emotional and evocative stuff, and obviously saw the beauty in words most authors do. I hope she is smiling, reading, and writing wherever she is.

  38. Have you found it? Yes, thanks! It only involved clicking through about four different online links that mentioned the meeting would be held over Zoom before I found the one that actually had the Zoom link. Hopefully all the two dozen or so people that have expressed (on Facebook) an interest in attending will find the link as well. I've just emailed the link to myself, anyway. Which means the organiser(s) will also likely email me the link later on today (probably 10 minutes before the meeting is due to start).

  39. “Tony, if you have a minute, I’d like to review an idea with you. You know I’ve been thinking of doing something for the kids on their birthday. We have the birthday cake once a month to celebrate all of the birthdays within that month. I have asked Beth to make up a birthday calendar to post in the dining hall. So last night, I thought of giving each kid a necklace with their name on the back of a medal and a Sanctuary logo on the front. What do you think?” “I think that will solve your problem for the first birthday we celebrate at Sanctuary. What are you going to do for subsequent years
