Charming. Unique. Hilarious. You have a way of nailing a turn of phrase. The snow "falling hard as a preacher on the wrong side of a saloon door"? Brilliant.
And oddly enough, after all those smiles, I feel like crying.
Those troublesome boys love each other so much. Hoss really is the glue that holds the other two together. The end is so lovely and bittersweet.
Thank you for a wonderful story!
Thank you for your kind words and compliments on my writing, and for taking the time to leave a comment. I'm glad you enjoyed this curious little tale. It took on a life of its own and, to be honest, I was as surprised by the ending as anyone!
