I can relate. Our daughter thinks we are way too overprotective! This is a great read!

Very enjoyable, the wit and pacing kept me reading without pause. Thank you.
Ha! Very well done. I think I was that poor kid in a former life. Reads like a winner to me!

"You ever do any shooting, Tommy? I like shooting" real light, light , light! And real, real, real good!

Absolutely hilarious!Aren't most parents like that? sure they are.Just that some pull the gun in their thoughts.Welldone!
It is hard to let go, isn't it? This is my favorite line - "She looked so much like her mother that my eyes stung." Good job!
I really like this sentence, "He wasn’t going to be doing his homework with my daughter if I could help it. I reached behind the sofa and opened my gun case. I pulled out my twelve gauge. “You ever do any shooting, Tommy? I like shooting.” The corners of my mouth stretched upward." It made me laugh involuntarily - incredibly amusing!!!
This was far and above my favorite entry of the week. There were other pieces I had to rate as well technically, but this was my #1 choice. Great work, as always...FUN! :)Thanks for a much needed GRIN in this valley of tears...

Phew, at last... some light relief. really did LOL. Just loved this Maxx. I was so there. I could hear my brother's voice. So glad I have sons.
This is another one of my favorites of yours. My father actually talked about getting a lie detector when I brought home my future husband. I'll never forget the look on my husbands face when my dad asked if he would be willing to take a lie detector test. Humor has never been my father's strong suit. But it is yours! Soooooooooooooooooo funny. I loved the gun part. Actually I loved every word of it. The dialogue was fantastic. This would make a fabulous skit or full length play. I sincerly enjoyed this one and (once again) am shocked it didn't place. Great work Maxx. Fabulous, fabulous entry.
