  1. It's taking me a long time, but it's thoroughly fun. I'm reading all the stories on AD starting at the back end of the alphabet. At this point I've just completed enjoying (and admiring) Mihangel's works. His detail wrapped gripping stories are awesome, and I'm sorry I've exhausted the library. Approaching it this way allows me to savour the unique talents of every author, without risk of missing someone when sampling haphazardly, which I tried previously, with poor success.
  2. Trump for even longer. 😢

    I loved it, and frankly, the rest too. I'm binge reading them, easy enough to do during COVID isolation. I noticed the wording is a bit 'different' and emailed the author. English is not his first language, nor even his second, but he writes in it because English is so nearly universal. The locations he writes about, and the sailing details he incorporates, are from personal experience, although obviously not the recounts of distant yesteryear. All in all, I get the impression of a deeply intelligent man who loves sailing, the sea, nature, and men, not necessarily in that order.
  4. Well damn. Fantastic. Sadly reminiscent of my own younger years, although in my case the crushing of my openness was by teachers in an archaic system. I was devouring 700 page tomes by the time I was in grade 3, and gobbling up 5 or more books per week from grade 7 on. Even my sports abilities were similar, never to get any better with age. I'm happy this story had a good ending, so I could daydream about being in there too.
  5. Wow, wow, wow. I've now finished both of Richie's stories, and loved them.
  6. Indeed. Let us all try to acquire our own access. Just post the address.
  7. Despite social distancing and self isolation I'm finding it impossible to keep up with all the stories. I've started on this charming 🙄 tale, but it's happening a bit like musical chairs; get up, move around, and read a bit of the next open story.
  8. Hey, you could have mentioned here that it's posted. https://awesomedude.com/cole-parker/trial-by-jury/trial-by-jury.htm
  9. Damn it Cole. You're the only one who could engineer a cliff hanger WITHOUT the story. 👍🏆🏆🏆
  10. Damn. I just realized its 33 minutes before Saturday. No wonder I can't see it.
  11. I know it's fiction, but it certainly shows how 'bad attitude' plays havoc with every aspect of our lives, and possibly deaths. Feeling the need to hide things, particularly from our loved ones and/or family (evil grin), doesn't help anyone, but it's a reality some have to deal with.
  12. Very nice, albeit a sad ending. Is 'poignant' the word I'm looking for?
  13. Beautiful, and all without music in front of him. Anybody want to bet that he's on the autistic spectrum? That's not a knock, btw.
  14. Cool, but I may be dumb myself. Is the asinine idea that of falling in love, and ignoring what others think?
  15. Oh my lord. What a delicious looking hunk of cat. I'd love to snuggle with that treasure. 😻😻😻😻😻😻
  16. You didn't mention any response from Mike.
  17. Too funny. I find that convention plays a less significant role; like eating a full-on dinner at 8:30 in the morning.
  18. As Cole said, but very depressing. I freely admit that at my age I prefer happy thoughts and endings. Still, well done.
  19. Waltzing is bad, but the jitterbug is worse. 👯
  20. I don't mind donating a little bit once in a while, but usually they just ask, if they ask at all, if they can round up to the next dollar. More often than not, you can tear off a little donation sticker that they ring through the register. I've never been hit up as you were with the RENs Rafter place. That said, I get asked all the time when I LIKE a charity on FB. Do you want to donate $384, $279, $117, or other? None, but I immediately wonder who these people might be who would donate hundreds of dollars!
  21. Good on you Pedro. I do lots of proofing for writers and when asked about credit I point out that I feel like the janitor, cleaning the art gallery. It may be important, but the credit goes to the artist. As for missing statutes, it's super easy to do that sort of thing. I am lucky enough to be on the autistic spectrum so that many of (most, if not all) the typos kind of wink at me like a lighthouse beacon. Sadly, it's also very distracting when trying to appreciate the storyline emotions and flow. Too many typos in a story will actually force me to a halt, which is sad, particularly if it's a great story, as so many at Awesomedude are. (I'm not immune to making the same typos in my own stuff, and finding it after I've posted it. Very distressing). 😖😖😖
