Humpwhistle,
of all the years I have been here, I have never read your work and I cannot for the life of me, give a damn reason why. This is brilliant, entertaining, and moving. Dialogue exceptional and quite humorous but so full of heart. I am in awe. jlsavell

    Thank you, jlsavell. It's funny how we FS members get caught up with one set of writers or another. Kind of like having a favorite spot in the woods--we also go there, without exploring the rest of the forest. Thanks for taking a chance on me. I'm glad you enjoyed. I will return the favor.

    Your comments mean a lot to me.

    Peace, Lee

    You my friend are phenomenal. I see your name all the time and have never clicked on it. My loss, not yours. You see, when one finds a very good writer, they should follow, for they learn a great deal from them.

    You are right, we tend to not stray for many reasons. But we will not go there
    A long conversation in and of itself.

    Do not worry about returning favor. Reviewing you was not a favor, it was a delight. I appreciate the gesture though. I don't want Fanstorians feeling obligated. It takes the fun out of reading great work or mediocre work. I want someone to read me out of want to and of course curiosity. Does that make sense.

    Have a good day Sir. Exceptional writer.

#4 Ranked Novelist
Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
There has been a lot of stuff about storms just recently but nothing like this. Nothing like a first hand account by someone who is an outside dweller by choice. This lady would never "go into brick" as the gypsies say. She is a traveller through and through even if she doesn't travel much.

The truly remarkable thing is that this is all done by her telling it so the whole thing comes over as a first hand experience from the description of the sheriff's belt -- that tells us a lot about him -- to the importance of the Endless Stew.

A remarkable write.

    Thank you, Pantygynt. I agree, the storm metaphor has gotten a lot of play lately. I'm glad you think I avoided the pitfalls of the cliché. I can't take the credit, though. I tend to hear voices. And these two characters had their way with me--as opposed to the other way around. Thanks for the comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

Brilliant story, my friend, on every front I can count. Sophia is a charming character who sound a bit like someone everyone on this site must know, and then add uniqueness and determination.

Proud, homeless, and free.

I love the idea of the endless stew, and Sophia's dedication to it.

The townsfolk sounded kind and supportive of their proud homeless lady.

This one deserves 10 stars!! And I don't think it was too long, maybe too short!

Take care,
Rhonda

    Thanks so much, Rhonda. I swear, sometimes my characters are smarter than am. Sophia and the Sheriff kind of dictated this story to me. I'm so glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

Your talent to put life in your characters is inspiring. In my youth, my mother always kept a pot of left over stew on the stove. Your post reminded me of those days. Very well done.

    Thank you, Charlie. The tradition of the pot simmering on the stove is a lovely one. And sadly missed. All winter I live on stews, chilies, and soups that I build from scratch every Sunday, then add to as the week goes on. Living like a hermit has certain advantages. I would have liked your mother. Thanks again. Peace, Lee
