Can't wait to see your reaction to my having published my third story, with a punctuation mistake in the title, Ms for lines, and etc.

Love the chapter!  Thatís our boys, so loving and generous. To agree to take care of a dieing person is no easy decision, but it just came naturally from Ennis and Jack.

I have never heard of hospice and its philosophy, learned something new here.  This totally justifies the time I spent on reading fan fictions :).   Jill is a very interesting character.  I like her, but just as surprised as Ennis and Jack with all her spiritual talking, the suggestive comments here and there, and she even traced her fingers along Jackís jaw! which is kind of unusual.  Would like to see more of her in the future chapters. 

Now letís see, we have quite a few pending things on the plate right now that wait for more elaboration, Jackís pending divorce, Tomís secret, business loan for Lazy L, Hal coming home, Yellow Stone trip (maybe?), to name a few.  This is good because it looks like the story is not going to wrap up soon :).

About two-thirds finished, I think.

How did you like 14?

oh I have a few hunches about Chapter 15.       I think Hal wants to leave the Boys the house in his will.   Thats why Tom was up to see him.  That is also why Tom was nervous at the house when he stopped by.   He doesn't want to go against Hals wishes, but then again, he needs to recoup the money he just spent fixing up the place.

Maybe Old L.D. Newsome is pressuring the bank not to give Jack the loan?

Maybe Jack will send away for a copy of the book "The Joy of Gay Sex"?      OMG!  can you imagine those two with a book full of kinky ideas?   LOL.
