I just got back from one of those "planting land mines on the way, / waters hydrant, bush and tree." You penned it perfectly, with embellishments that, after reading them, i just had to shake my head and say here is a person who knows what walking a mutt is all about. Well done!!

A wonderful story about an upbeat teacher that wants to show good instead of bad. My teacher husband also grades himself. Any good teacher would.

The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes come alive and give your reader the Carribean touch ... I do believe I've accidentally walked into your cottage ... forgive me, I wasn't invited, but you've made it so welcoming and delightful. So beautifully written, more than worthy of honorable mention! A very warm welcome to the Den! ~Elizabeth
