Great twist on this! I really liked the down-to-earth feel and charming country store tone. It was nice and simple and the characters were delightful, great job!
Nice take on what God has called us to do. Your characters are believable, too. Well done.
Nice character study on the old man, with a clever final sentence guaranteed to draw one last smile from the reader. I thought that at first the boy was well described but that towards the end he became somewhat wooden would an animated ten-year-old really sit placidly through all those conversations? Maybe he would. My ten-year-old would be climbing the walls!
A good, homey story. I enjoyed it, however couldn't stop remembering how much my sons loved fishing trips with their father. That was back in the days when the fish were safe to eat.
I'll just say simply, "I liked this story." I'm not even sure why. I guess that's good.
I could picture this very clearly. Good story and well written.
Reminded me of a 10 year old boy with my fishing Grandpa - a Baptist preacher who would get lost in talking and praying and considered fishing for men more important than for fish. Yes, I'd loved to sit and listen to him. God bless.
