Cool story - thanks for telling it! The details put me right in the desert (I think I'm sweating!) :)
It's a gift to be able to take the "news" and turn it into a very interesting story. Great job.

I really liked the story but finding out at the end that it was based on true events was the icing on the cake. Good job.

WOW! A truly amazing story. I've never heard/known about this...I loved the way it ended though and the fact that there really was a phone booth in the middle of nowhere...just wow. Awesome writing! ^_^

Very strange, a phone in the middle of nowhere. Truth is stranger than fiction, they say. Good story. A bit unbelievable at first, but glad to see that it really was a true story. "The Lord works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform."...Helen
Great story, and especially interesting since it's true. Thanks for sharing!
What a cool story! It's too bad that the phone booth has been removed, but good for Rick using it to witness to people.

I loved, loved, loved this. So engaging and interesting to read.
Betty, congratulations on your EC. This is one of my favorites this week.
