    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. :)

    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.

    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. :D:D

    They could be trying to steal all of our wheat and corn to make the breading for their own version of the Corn Dog. :cool:

    It might be a fun April Fools Day offering. :D

    I'll think about it. Haven't had any ideas to that affect, but you never know.

    Great story!

    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!
