Horrible Harvest Encouragement Award

I'm glad that folks found my comments encouraging. That's really what I strive for when critiquing a piece is to find what works first and emphasize the positives. 

I wouldn't have entered the competition without Grover and Cactus Clem, so I'd like to thank them for giving me their story, which you can read here!

I have arranged for Peppy Pingu to present a special trophy to Grover and Clem for their invaluable assistance. Here you go, fellows! 

Ghost Town Grover Sez:
"Aw shucks, Ornery, thanks! That'll look right nice next to my Biggest Whopper trophy from Sheriff Austin that he gave me fer my story about the time I caught a half-ton trout in the Rio Grande an' fed the whole minin' camp."

Cactus Clem sez:
"Aw, dang, now I'm blushin'! I ain't never won nothin' before, though Grover sez if there was a trophy fer drinkin' the most beer in one night, I'd be a shoo-in.


  1. Love that you shared this totally deserved award with your co-creators. I like Peppy Pingu too.

  2. There should totally be an award for drinking the most beers in one night! :-) Congratulations once again!

    1. Cactus Clem would have had serious competition from me in my younger day. These days I can't have more than a couple of sips, thanks to diabetes and blood pressure meds. They have yet to come up with a non-alcoholic beer that actually tastes good.
