Love it! Great story, great style. Your Aunt Bett seems a bit like my Aunt Dot. However, my Aunt Dot was neither my Aunt nor was she just a Dot. LOL In fact, I'm not sure that she was anybody's Aunt; maybe she was everybody's Aunt.
Wonderful:: "who was as close to 80 as I was to 8". I can tell that you write not only for the readers of information but for the readers that appreciate good writing also. Wonderful!
Have you read Bodie and Brock Thoene's books? www.thoenebooks.com Great writing style; their books are timeless. Your style reminds me of their style just a tad.
I haven't read those books yet, but they are on my list.
I am glad you like the stories, but very happy with the writing compliment. Thank you so much.
I am also glad you had "everybody's" Aunt Dot to call your own.
