That was me!   :-*

Cool!  I wanted to post, but not a memeber.  Thanks!  :D

No...wait a minute.  I didn't post it on Human Interest.  I did put it on Wranglers and Brokeback Slash though.  I wasn't sure if it would be appropriate for the HI LJ.
Love.  You have a problem with it?

I think that assumption is correct (the HI one, that is). Thanks for posting on the other sites. I appreciate it!

Leslie,

Another job well done!  It's a quite unique approach to tell the story via their post car/mail exchange.  I am looking forward to Junior and Jenny's visit.  There must be questions, and some serious talks, do they get to meet Bobby, how will Jack handle the whole situation,  and of course the sleeping arrangement  ;)

Everyone--

Thought this may be of interest. As you know, Jack and Ennis are happily ensconsced in Quanah, TX, which is a real town and really is about 30 miles from Childress. It is named after Chief Quanah Parker, the last Comanche Indian Chief. They other day, I got a message from a reader who is a distant relative of the Chief! Amazing...small world, huh?

Since i read everything hot off the press (as it were), this morning, I re-read chapter 8...just as good as the last time I read it. I'll have to make a second visit to the peanutbutter...yiou know, for DAYS after I read chapter 2, i was carrying this peanutbutter (crunchy style--OUCH!) around the house, without even thinking about it...

Hey Leslie,
Posted another review at FanFiction - as always I'm really enjoying your work! The interlude is very effective.  Hal is another great, vivid character - hope he eventually gets to go home. And seeing our boys happy and together, sure makes me happy.

Let's see, if you want to edit an article from a client in Switzerland, and then do a little SPSS analysis for me, I can just spend the day working on the next installment... LOL
