What a remarkable event and consequences that flowed for so many years from it. A wonderful story. One of those that holds you right to the end, right to the last sentence. Thanks for sharing this, and congrats to your hubby for his obvious talent wherever he be! Anita.

As we can see, some FS members have problems that are truly Life Threatening or Personally Demoralizing. I know in my heart of hearts that the advice given here is based on the latest research into medical and human behavioural treatments and that our suffering friends will find lasting relief from their great problems. May your god bless and keep you for the fine work you do in the service of others, Anio.

A Dark Tale - part II by giraffmang

Exceptional

That must be one of the cleverest lines to leave the reader hanging on that I've ever come across,
"Then do(italics) what must(italics) be done(italics)." ,
given how you have built the characters and the story now to such a high level of tension and complexity it almost hurts.
The opening sentence is also very clever in almost setting the reader into a trance, with Percival -"watching the flames caress the wood before devouring them". It's very hypnotic doing that activity. But whilst doing that we are told of Percival's 'guilt' - 2-pronged ,one, that he feels so enamoured of his new wife, though Esme has only passed 2 years ago; 2, that Esme's passing has had such an effect on his once 'vibrant' daughter.
And so the plot beautifully thickens with more complexity added to the apparition/mother/daughter relationship.
This truly is a tale worth waiting for Mr G. Cheers, Anita.

The Many Horrors of Gout by Brett Matthew West

Excellent

I read every word of this Brett! I slowly said out aloud the hard words until I 'got ' them. I'm like that with medical stuff. You poor man. My heart goes out to you. I read articles like this about my own ailments and having Knowledge doesn't help the pain AT ALL does it? Your picture is a brilliant show of the pain you must suffer with this horrid thing. Do you prefer to tell people this kind of stuff rather than whimper or scream in pain when you have visitors. I do. It takes my mind off things and leaves the visitors with very blank looks on their faces and perhaps a wan smile. Hope you're not suffering from it or any of it's nasty hangers-on now, cheers, Anita.

Just got back after some time away - great to have a good laugh. Re the indoor cat - we've got 2 outdoor cats. We had 2 dogs from the pound for the kids. One was psychotic and told the other one to bite the neighbour on the arm and he had to go to hospital for stitches. He didn't report us but dogs had to go. 5 year old K decided outdoor cats should now live indoors and brought one in - took us ages to find it in very large house. Fun for all the family - ha, ha. Cheers, Anita

haiku (starlings fly in) by giraffmang

Excellent

I love this piece although I am not a haiku writer and don't know the 'niceties' of the form. Birds in flight are wondrous to me. You have caught the magic for me here of a flock of starlings which I have seen and been spell bound by. The magic expanded by 'mystical autumn silence'. Wonderful.

Just my kind of story. Step-daughters and ravens - I couldn't ask for more! The dark moodiness builds up slowly but surely as the chapter progresses - it even 'feels' damp to me. I can see Percival and his Lady wife splattered, quite clearly, as they run for cover. Bird poo is an awful thing to be hit by from above. Giving the daughter the name 'Jett' really works extremely well and gives the girl a very modern 'personality with attitude' not expected at first description of her being 'pale', 'being room bound' and 'missing her mother', and being the daughter of old-fashioned 'Percival'. When we meet her speaking with Ravens we realize she's a time bomb. Most fascinating read, thanks, Anita.

All very funny - VERY. I'm an Ozzie - that's an Australian :) - that one had me what you would call 'right way up' laughing, good job !!!:))) And knowing about the meaning of life... well that's right up my alley right now.
Here's a question you might want to answer or not:
When a cardiologist is getting you ready for heart surgery and a gastroenterologist i.e a bum doctor, tells you that you aren't a candidate for such surgery and you should go home and die - but first he wants to do another colonoscopy on you (#4 in 9 months :))) ) what do you say to him? Or anyone? Or to yourself even? What about to your dog?
I won't be upset if this is not a suitable question. Cheers, Anita.

Hi Charlie, I'm back after a long time a-wandering where you don't need to know HA!
Now you're writing your version of the guy and his missus who made pies from selected customers - can't for the life of me think of the name of it - you cheeky channeller! Your mind is an endless traveller that never will rest until it has been into every nook and cranny of every story in this Universe - so of course you're going to start criss-crossing some of the great minds out there. Forgive this hokey pokey stuff Charlie - I started laughing quite late in the story and then of course I couldn't stop. I just love you and your mind I'd like to take you home with me, Anita
