Rating of the book chapter The Fisherman's Son- 81 by Ulla
Chapter 81 of the book The Fisherman's Son

Another great chapter. I didn't see any errors and thought it was very well written. Now the war has started. That should be very interesting. Well done as always. Rox

Rating of the story Wedding Chronicles #2 by Sally Law

Wow! That's quite a story, Sally. Did Burt survive? Did they get to spend their senior years together? Isn't that something, that they would meet again? Did Alice actually write "Strangers on a Train"? It would be the perfect clue for their reunion and eventual wedding.
I am a huge fan of the early Beatles. Not so much after "Rubber Soul". When I was an early teen, 1963-64, my friends and I used to pantomime the Beatles for all the neighborhood kids who'd come to watch. We used lamp stands for microphones, and turn up the record player as loud as it would go. We cut out heavy cardboard in the shape of their guitars, and color them appropriately. One of the songs we did was "Till There Was You", a beautiful love song. Years ago, there was a contest about Beatle songs, to re-write one into a story poem. It's back in my portfolio somewhere. Mine started out,
"There were bills on the fridge,
But I never saw their due date... " etc. etc.
"Till There Was You" was actually written in 1957 by Meredith Willson, for the Broadway musical, "The Music Man". Paul McCartney wanted to do a cover for it. It's one of the few that Paul and John didn't write. Meredith Willson also write "76 Trombones" for the same musical. He also wrote "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas".
You tell a wonderful story, Sally. It could be a movie. Easily. A classic, in fact, with the correct actors. I'd say Helen Hunt for Alice, and Harrison Ford for Burt. What do you think?
Hugs,
Kimbob

Rating of the poem Missing in Action by MissMerri

A very well-written heartfelt Cinquain about a young man losing his own life while saving others in the line of duty. A great honourable tribute.

Rating of the poem Tower Bridge in lockdown by Colin John

It's been fifty years since I was last in London, but that bridge was a highlight I WAS able to see up close. Let's hope the lock-down ends soon for today's tourists. Nice use of end rhyme in this short poem. Rod

Rating of the story Wedding Chronicles #2 by Sally Law

Such a touching and beautiful love story, Sal! "September Grass" has a double meaning for this story; both a time of year, and a season of life -- and additionally, it harkens back to the Vietnam Era when this lovestruck couple met. (I was a JT fan, but for some reason, this lovely song escaped me.)
I also always loved "Til There Was You;" even though the Beatles didn't write it, they performed it so well!
I just love happy endings, and you have certainly given us one, with this amazing, romantic story.
