Very effective use of repetition--when you left it off a few paragraphs toward the end, you really make your reader sit up, slow down, and read those paragraphs carefully.

Those of us who have swung in a porch swing with our grandmas can really relate to what you wrote. Very well done.

I enjoyed your story. Reminded me of the times I spent with my grandmother. Unique way of using Eek. Good job!

This was good. I, myself, have a front porch swing that goes, "Eek, eek, eek." It's a comforting sound. I really liked your story - good writing!

Very nice... I heard it too... it is great to have those sounds and smells that remind us of people we have loved and missed... I have a few of them myself! I think we have a winner here.

Such a fantabulous (my own made-up word- (*.*) ), touching story! I had tears in my eyes as I read it, and it is very well written! Thanks for sharing this sweet memory with us. God Bless.
This brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful tribute to grandmothers and mothers everywhere. Beautiful!

Beautifully done. As many have said, it makes me long for my own grandmother.
