Yay! I'll be reading it tonight!  ;D
‘cause the truth is, I already give him everythin’ I got to give, more than I ever even knew I had; ‘n it all for him, all of it, him who is my brother, my father, my child, my friend, my lover, my heart, my soul; my Ennis.

From chapter 8: "Three weeks, fifteen gallons of paint, five gallons of primer, forty sheets of sandpaper, three dozen dust masks, one case of caulk, five paintbrushes, and six skinned knuckles later, they finished painting the house. "

Leslie, did you actually go to HomeDepo to check how much paint, primer, brushe, etc it takes to paint a house?  LOL
My home improvement related knowledge is zero, so I will take whatever you say.  :)

Another great chapter!

I was a little bit surprised that Ennis took Jack’s confession on others guys Jack had been with so well.  In my mind, Ennis always felt very possessive on Jack being his Jack.  It would be hard for Ennis to swallow the fact that Jack has been with other guys, even if it was before their reunion.  Ration aside, since Ennis had no ground to blame Jack being with other guys before their reunion, I thought Ennis would be more hurt to know the truth.

I didn't go to Home Depot, but my husband is a handy guy...we figured out the dimensions of the house and then figured out what would be needed. This may not be 100% correct, but it's in the ballpark.

Ennis asked, so he knew there was a risk of finding out the info...plus, I think it goes along with the emotional maturity that Jack has been noticing.

Just FYI

I couldn’t post review on fanfiction.com.  Can still read the story, but the submit review page won’t load.  This could be why you have not received any notification.

Actually, there notification alert system went down for 2 days but now it is back up. Not sure why you couldn't submit a review tho. Maybe try again? You could be number 100.  :)

I'm off to find out if dogwood grows in Texas, like it does in Alabama...bye!

I thought Ennis finding out about the other guys was O.K., With possession, one
loses a little possiveness, no?
l just sent my Canadian friend ALL my scans...I don't expoect to hear from him for a long time...

The latest...I received an email from a young woman in Germany who wants to translate my story into German and post it on a German fanfic site. She has promised to send me a copy of the story, the link to the fanfic, and will translate (into English) any posted reviews that are writen.

Does this mean I've arrived? LOL

Here's the title in German:

Eine Liebe, entstanden durch Stahl
