"Disaster In The 'Burbs" by Jerry D Young Copyright 2008
Once again it kept me interested. I actually stayed up until 1am to finish it. But most of the other survivors seemed so darned whiney and needy. You can bet your a** that if I were in that situation, I would have been one of the first to be volunteering for the nasty jobs, such as removing the bodies and such. But then I do not subscribe to the handout mentality, expecting to sit back and be taken care of by others.
Keep em coming.
Darlene is a bit like DW; will bend over backwards to help, but hard as nails if you cross her.
Done the 'burbs ... a refreshing change from a nuclear strike :2thumb:
Have started to go through some of the fiction items out here and I am really enjoying them. Lots of neat ideas to try out and a few things I never even gave thought to.
Loved it!! :2thumb::2thumb::2thumb: :beercheer:
Topic For A New Book
Hey, Jerry.... how about a book where the disaster is not EMP or Nuclear War. How about one where aliens land and try to take over the planet? That might be a lot of fun.
They could be trying to steal all of our wheat and corn to make the breading for their own version of the Corn Dog.
It might be a fun April Fools Day offering.
I'll think about it. Haven't had any ideas to that affect, but you never know.
That was a good one. Thanks
I enjoyed reading your story, and it gave me a wonderful idea. My husband has mentioned taking a piece of the garage and building an extra room...now I think I'll suggest we make it a shelter like the one in your story - you know, in case of tornadoes ?
My husband isn't much of a prepper, but he lets me do what I want as long as I don't inconvenience him too much, or can give him a reason that seems logical and down-to-earth to him.
Preparing for tornadoes is one thing, preparing for the total economic collapse of our country (and others), not so much.
Thanks for writing!
