What a great tribute, Bob. Isn't it amazing to come across true grit on a writing site. Just think, if we didn't stick around her, how many missed opportunities we would throw away. Happy Birthday to Evelyn. She is amazing.

Hello, Bob, Is Miss Evelyn a real person? Or just a contest prompt? You made it sound so real, like it is a long time friend. Maybe she is LOL In any case, very well written. Good luck!

    Hi, Gypsy. Thism post is years old. LOL..Miss Evelyn was one of the greatest people we ever had on this site. An 86 year old who suffered immense amounts of abuse at the hands of a husband. I' havent't checked but I would imageine her name is still listed on here under community. If not, so many people were following her that any old timer like me Joined in 2004) would know about her...especially the women. Blessings, gypsy. Thanks for reading. Bob

Hi Bob, I am so late in my writings and reviewing...I don't even know who Miss Evelyn is, I will try to find her in FS? Her story must be an inspiration. I will search for her!

    ..Hi, Ray. I don't know what is going on today. All of a sudden people are going into my portfolio and digging out work from long ago. LOL...Miss Evelyn died about four yuears ago, I believe. This was written when she was still on the site. she was a fantastic writer but ailing and elderly. Thanks for peeking in again though, my friend. Bob

    Bob, this is weird. This and the other one I read today were number 2 and 3 showing in your portfolio.

    Thanks so much, Cheryl. If you are perusing my portfolio....go back a few years to a short story called "The Interview" and tell me what you think. It is one of my favorites with a surprise ending. :) Bob

Lady Evelyn stroked the fur of the cat sitting in her lap and sighed. Another fruitless day lay ahead with nothing interesting happening to look forward to. Boring. To make it worse it was her 87th birthday. Here she sat at seven thirty in the morning and she had hours and hours of smiling and saying 'Thank you' to people she didn't even remember! Drat, she would also have to sit through not only birthday wishes, and read the cards and the useless presents, but and here was the real rub birthday cake! Lady Evelyn hated cake of any description, but birthday cake went clunky in her mouth and then her dentures got stuck and slipped in her mouth making conversation impossible. Oh, birthday cake got first prize. She remembered so many things, but all her memories were old and fading fast and then they tell her it's your birthday. Again! She only had one awhile back she was sure, but they said 'no it's today.' Why, for Heaven's sake couldn't leave her alone with Puss for company. Regards Anne.

This short essay shows how strong this lady is. To both live through the abuse than have the strength to write about it for all to see. The artwork shows the love she has in her heart and the caring and respect you have for her.

Keep writing

Joan
