Ah.. Very clever approach to the empty and full topic! I enjoyed this trip down yesterday's main street. :)
I enjoyed the easy pace of the story, just right for the setting. Well done.
I always like stories that prove the wisdom of listening to your mother. Good ending.

These old western ghost towns are full of such colorful history and you offered us a glimpse into one story. Your love of horses came across. I would buy this story.

Great story and super take on the topic. I could "see" the almost ghost town. Good job!

Your writing portrayed the emptiness of this town so well which set up the reader for the emptiness within this man. Well done!

Don't tuck this story away once the challenge is over. There's potential here for a novel - fill in the details of what happened from the time he left his wise momma through those heart-wrenching five years. Excellent use of this week's theme. The dialogue was also well-written. I hope you place high in the "ratings" this week. If I were a judge, you would have my vote.
I love old-west stories and this did not disappoint. The squeaking sign and tumbleweeds got me.
