I'm going to "third" the Boys' Club comments. Around the time when my entry takes place, Daddy, his business partner (who had his cottage at the other end of our road), and an assortment of other guy friends would pack up their rods, reels, and guns and go into the woods for a couple of days. Daddy didn't fish nor hunt. He was "in charge of the beer", as he put it ;)

There's a sweetness to this I can't put a finger on...it's not a cloying sentimental sweetness, but sweetness nevertheless. I don't think it has anything to do with "later on" either -- I mean, you could leave out the "last time" part and the essence of the story would still be there.

Good job! *hugs*

Glad you enjoyed it. I was after telling the story (95% of it was that), but the 5% was what was imporrtant to me. I probably could ahve done away with the concluding paragraph (I antagonized over that one), but like I've said before, I'm not a professional or even amateur creative writer (I guess I am in the contest though), so all the training I've had is in journalism class in high schoo and one creative writing class.

Thanks so much for your comment. I usually don't write that long of comments to Idol entries. Perhaps I just don't have enough time or something.
