Title: Chapter 1 Reviewer: Tracy Signed

Karol's story reflects the title in so many ways, and is a good addition to the Spring Awakens Challenge tales.

Filled with details, factual information, and Cartwright spirit, this story celebrates the season.

Thanks, Karol, for participating in the challenge for 2021.

Author's Response:

Tracy, I can hardly add anything to this; for you have said quite nicely, briefly and succinctly, what constitutes my story.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

I enjoyed reading your story.   The historical information you provided is very interesting and adds a rich subtext.   I really like your dialogue between Hoss and Joe.  Very natural.  I laughed in a few places such as the reference to the blue dress.

Love Peter O'Toole.  Cute!  You give just the right flavor of springtime in your story.  I could almost smell Hop Sing's apple blossoms on the table.  An ode to the Pony Express and to the spirit of the Cartwright family.  

Well done, Karol. 


Author's Response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed reading my story!

Yes, I wanted to combine a sometimes fun dialogue between Hoss and Joe with the awakening of nature and history. For the latter, I found the Pony Express very interesting. I think my story sort of fits as a continuation of the two episodes "Ride The Wind".

Thanks for reading and commenting.

An interesing story for which I'm sure you did some research; you told me some things I didn't know. And is this for the Spring Challenge? If you want it to be, let Tracy know as this is a wonderful capture of that time of year in Virginia City and the Ponderosa.

What a shame neither Ben nor Hoss was there to see Joe triumphant in the race commemorating the Pony Express. And it seems like Hoss is filling in for Adam by adding a bit of sarcasm to his conversations.Enjoyed it.

(I had to smile at Joe's friend, Peter O'Toole, as I couldn't help but be reminded of the great actor.)

Author's Response:

It's great what you've noticed. Yes, I did some research and it should be for the Spring Challenge.

Since Adam was no longer there at the time, I wanted to have him at least in this form, his proverbial Sarcasmus, transferred to Hoss.

I actually thought of the great actor Peter O'Toole!

Glad you like my story - thanks for reading and commenting.
