Well told as always, Lee! I guess that was a sort of justice. But I'm not sure if any women would be content with that kind of arrangement considering it sounds rather like a commune that things are likely to come to squabbles over various household affairs. But still very entertaining.

Hi Lee, this was a fine ending to the story, and Hoyt got what he deserved. The gentry is not putting up with the hoi polloi but Hoyt has another thing coming. Great story with a great solution. Loved the dialogue.

I also wonder if you meant 'eejit' instead of idjit: eejit is the Irish and Scottish for idiot. I'm sure you're aware.
As you know, I love your writing.
All the best. Ulla:)))

Right off the bat that first paragraph gave the intro to the chapter quite a 'sit up and notice' affect. The town description, analogous to the physical members of the body (the mouth and throat) is jarring, intense of vivid. We expect the worst.

The second section hints at the roots of the town's illness and prognosis based on Hoyt's infectious trail.

We conclude a strange type of cure for the future as exposure to the offender is checked and arrested.

This little story of 3 chapters is definitely unlike any I have ever read. Unique concept, interesting colloquialisms, and believable characters all.

Enjoyed it, Sir

Charles Brigham Hoyt smelled as pretty as sun-dried cat puke! I decided right then and there, my salty writer, to give ya' a sixer! This was superb. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. The characters came alive with your descriptions and natural life-like settings. This was fun to read.
All my best,
Sally

I love it!!!! CB got what he deserved. I am so glad he lost his swagger, he never should of had it to start with. Your characters come to life. I like that.

This is more justice than he deserved, but, as the man said, "hangin's too good fer the varmiint." Poetic justice and a poetic end, (ongoing) for CB Hoyt is real justice. A great, well thought out plot, and a satisfying end to the story is an excellent, imaginative and clever, (there was a number of spags, but I wasn't sure they weren't intended) but a delightful read Lee. Well done, blessings, Roy

This is a great ending. It was good to see CB lose his swagger.

I'd swear you was the offspring of a skunk an' a pump handle--scented as one, stupid as the other."

This line alone made the chapter worthwhile.

Well, that justice in a town without, right, Lee? I enjoyed your conclusion. Good job. Better not mess with country folk. You did a good job telling this part of the story with the dialogue, the setting, and the characters. I really liked the opening few lies about the description of the almost town.

Can you same the same?" [I guess this is dialect talk, but it stands out as weird.

Thanks for sharing. Jan
