This is an amazing story!. I wish The Cartwrights had been allowed to marry on the show. Just think of the possibilities if this story was written into the show. An update for this story would be very welcome.

Thank you for reading this one, Daisy60. This was my first fanfic Bonanza story. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've never considered a sequel, but who knows, someday, I might.

Great idea of Ben's to have Adam and Joe wright why they were thankful for each other. I loved reading the way they actually felt about each other. The real truth was from Hoss! I loved the honesty of his essay!

I loved the way Hop Sing ranted curses in Chinese at the men and finally took care of the man. Even though Hop Sing threatened to quit once again Joe knew he would still be there taking care of all of them. Wonderful story.

Author's Response:

So glad that you liked it, daisy60. Hop Sing was there at JOe's biryh and I think there must have been a bond between them greater than the others (well, maybe not Hoss!)

THE Man by pbeaking Rated: Family Friendly starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 23]
Summary:

As we come upon the 17th anniversary of Michael Landon’s passing July 1st, 1991, I’ve been trying to think of a way to celebrate what he has left for us all. This is a different sort of story because it is written in rhyme. I find I can express myself easier that way. These ditties, as I so call them, happen to be a hobby of mine. I hope you will enjoy my tribute to Michael, for I feel he has left his mark on the world in many ways. Posted originally on Bonanza World

I love a good Adam/Joe story! Joe had a terrible ordeal to go through to which he blamed himself. He thought he had to get through it all alone until he was with Adam to mark trees and Adam helped Joe and Adam himself recall when Joe was much younger and used to cling to Adam when he was in turmoil. This was the beginning of Joe getting the help he needed and brought Adam and Joe closer as brothers. Terrific story!



Author's Response:

Thank you, daisy. This isn't an "enjoyable" story but it is a story about relationships and family. Thanks for reading and leaving a review. It made me feel better to know people are still reading.

Larry/Roger was obviously demented, maybe due to things that involved his childhood. It was mainly as he remembered his childhood that the fires suddenly happened. As I was reading, I was wondering where Joe was. He didn't really appear in the story until the very end. At least he finally appeared!
