Well, this has been a truly wonderful story and here we are, in November 2014, still appreciating Annie Proulx's gift to us, the haunting tale of our boys Ennis and Jack, so many years later.
Thank you for this satisfying and loving tale of a "sweet life"; I guess most people have come a long way but for others, such a long way still to go. Thanks again and good luck in your future writing career. Emjay.

Asdfghjkl the end of this chapter actually ripped the shit out of my heart. What if this was just one of them dreaming?! I'd fucking cry. Don't do that. Don't let that be what you have up your sleeve.
Listening to dirty little secret it's such a good song for their situation. The lyrics I mean. Not the style lol.

It's nice to think Ennis didn't say anything to keep Jack happy. And yay for Blushies!

I gotta admit, the first couple of chapters I had trouble reading. It was all a little higgledepiggledy but I thought I keep reading and here we are, things have settled down and omg

In the dining room, she put her arm through Ennis' and gently pulled him into the kitchen. She looked into his face and spoke seriously to him, "This morning is my gift to you and Jack. Don't spend it on ranch work. Make it count." Placing her hands on either side of his face, she kissed his cheek.

Meeeeeeeeeep :'(

I have enjoyed reading your take on Ennis and Jack's sweet life very much. Thank you for writing it. It moved me to tears of laughter and sadness. I am sure I will read it again and again because I'm like that.

Thanks again

It's good to see the 'young' John emerging again. They all need the healing.
