The idea for this story came one night as I was reading yet another dinosaur story to Jeremy, my five year old son.

It is written for kids and meant to be fun. I'd love some real kid and kid-at-heart feedback.

Enjoy!

I love it! I read the first

I love it! I read the first few chapters awhile back and I was totally into it. I was so happy to find out that you posted more chapters. Now I am begging you to post more! Ü. I love your writing. You can describe things so well. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions of Jee getting on and off of his 4-wheeler in a flash. The only mistakes that I found was in 4 or 5 spellings and missing words, but I neglected writing down where they were, because I was so into the story. Perhaps I will go back and tell you where they were later, but for now...thanks for the story. I can tell that it is a story for all ages. Keep those chapters coming!

Can't say I've ever heard the phrase, "I'm going to take a tub."

I've never heard the phrase

I've never heard the phrase "I'm going to take a tub." I would have thought it was an error. It sounds so unfamiliar, that I would imagine you are in the minority Dave. But hey, those relatives of yours up on the hills above Nashville pretty much have their own dialiect.

I wondered where I picked it

I wondered where I picked it up! I'm telling you, tubs are funner.

Gotta run, them dogs under the front porch are puttin' up a fuss!

Excellent read, you really

Excellent read, you really held my interest, can't wait for the rest. Just a couple of possible typos; 8th paragraph from bottom of page, chap 2; did you mean take a tub or bath?. Paragraph 6 of chap 3; 'is' to 'it'? Ray

Ray, thanks for the feedback

Ray, thanks for the feedback and for catching the typos. For those of you following, you won't find the typos Ray found. I already changed them. You'll have to find your own. Don't worry, there are plenty to go around!

Interesting how we become accustom to word usage. In my family we use "I'm going to take a tub" interchangeably with "I'm going to take a bath." Never stopped to think that some may not ever use the word "tub" in that way. I guess you never hear the wealthy people in movies say, "Jeeves, please draw my tub."

I think we need to start an informal poll. Am I the only tub taker? C'mon, don't be bashful--are you a bather or a tub taker? Tubs are funner!

Thanks again Ray. I love feedback. Keep it coming--

Dave
