This is a very funny story. I absolutely loved it. It was like a 3 Stooges comedy routine. I'm still trying to figure out who's Larry & who's Curly. I'm guessing Shorty is Moe since he planned the kidnapping. Adam using being kidnapped as a vacation from branding & Joe complaining that it was Adam instead of him who had been kidnapped was too funny. Considering that his "ransom" note was a complete fabrication, I have a feeling that if Adam was younger, he'd be taking a trip to the barn with his father. This was a great story & I'm sorry I missed last night's chat about it.
This is a wonderful story. It is also one of most funniest fan fiction that I ever read
What a great story. I literally laughed out loud.
The way Adam outsmarted them with his quick wit. This story is so Adam. Sometimes his sarcasm is just adorable.
I won't give anything away but the scene with his eyes is absolutely hilarious. 😉 Your comedic timing is spot on!
If only this had been an episode. Joe is so cute.
I highly recommend this gem. Kudos!
This is a fun story with some very funny lines. I can so see Adam being a little devious and having fun with the unfortunate situation. Two of the bumbling bad guys remind me a little bit of Abbot and Costello or Laural and Hardy, and even the captain and Gilligan. Funny!
I just loved this story. The bumbling kidnappers were excellent. I like how Adam was very switched on at the start, to what Melvin and Bert where up to. I really thought he was going to pull out his book in the cabin once kidnapped and really make a vacation out of his kidnapping. This was a good laugh, quirky story, which kept me entertained until the end.
I have to agree with the other reviewers that this story would have made a great episode. Thanks for the laugh.
That was so funny I laughed out loud when the note about fixing a windmill was revealed. Adam was lucky he wasn't younger and or he'd be taking a trip to the barn for that one. Great story Patina. I'm sick in bed at the moment and this story really cheered me up. Thank you

Author's Response: Thank you, LMC! Well, Adam tried to enjoy his situation (lol).
Funny! Adam is so sneakily awesome!
Author's Response: Thank you, Adam and Joseph! I'm glad to know you enjoyed this story.
This was a really fun story. So funny for Adam to let the kidnappers think he is Joe, so he can get some time off.
Author's Response: Thank you, BUSTERSMOM, for reading and reviewing. Everyone needs a vacation once in a while. ;)
I'm still laughing! This would have made a wonderfully funny episode.
Thank you, Cal! And thank you for the fantastic compliment!
You certainly write well with tongue in cheek! Excellent
Thank you, BettyHT! Glad you enjoyed it!
That was just too funny. Adam played those guys like a fine tuned fiddle. Great story!!!
Thank you, Mo! Adam finally got that vacation he'd wanted (lol). Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed this silly little tale.
I love your humor and description here! Another story that would have made a great episode!
Thank you, jmd29! Adam was so looking forward to his vacation. LOL
to funny Patina...our Adam was so cool...I enjoy your writing style very much and you made my day off with your stories....thank you
Thank you, PERNELLSulli. Adam finally got that vacation he wanted (lol). I honored to know you've spent your day off work reading my stories. :)
So funny. I love your humor. Well done.
Thank you, spats! I'm glad my wacky sense of humor gave you a laugh.
Great story! I love you sense of humor. Poor Adam :0)
Thank you, Bahj! I'm so pleased to know you enjoyed this story.
The tongue and cheek tone of this parody is hysterical. Inept kidnappers, a relaxed Adam and a happily ever after...it doesn't get much better than this.
Thank, Patina for a delightful story.
Thank you, Lillian! I struggled with this story since it was written for a challenge. I'm so pleased to know you enjoyed it!
Onloy Adam would see a kidnapping as a chance for a vacation. And Joe all disappointed cuz he thought he wasn't the bargaining chip anymore. Hillarious Patina. I like how you weave a story filled with humor.
Thank you, AF. Adam used the situation to his advantage, much to Joe's disappointment (lol). I'm so pleased to know you enjoyed this story.
great story but poor Adam they think he is Joe
Thank you, pam. Yup--those poor guys were confused.
Leave it to Adam to turn a kidnapping into a vacation!
This tale was a little like watching an old Three Stooges movie! Funny stuff throughout! I can just hear Adam helping the kidnappers.
And Joe being miffed because he might be losing worth as a kidnap victim! Too funny!
Only one thing. I'm pretty sure chipmunks don't care for beans!
Thanks for a true-to-character fun story, Patina!
Thank you, Tracy! It's always good to hear that I've managed to portray the Cartwrights as we know and love them. Shorty should've chosen his accomplices a little more carefully (lol). I'm so pleased to know you enjoyed this story.
Patina you've done it again! Your descriptions are so funny and your characters are spot on. Poor Adam all he wanted was a vacation...who knew our Adam was so humerous.
Thank you, Terina! Adam could be sneaky when he wanted to be (lol). Melvin and Bert didn't know what they'd gotten themselves into when they chose their victim. I'm so pleased to know you enjoyed this story.
