Fuller Brush man or Watkins? Delightful!

I felt like I knew these two old ladies, and I liked them a lot! You have a great imagination.
I fell in love with Etta and her wonderful made-up stories. I even loved "unlovable" Lorene. Excellent characterization and humor in this piece.

ROFL! This is hilarious! I am still chuckling, I loved the way this story was just going, this is definitely top notch for creativity and I loved the ending best of all. Great job! ^_^
What an uplifting story. I enjoyed it so much!

This had to have been an absolute HOOT to write. I LOVED reading it! Just a joy to read, and I don't think I stopped laughing the whole time.

Too cute. I know more than a few ladies who would do something like that. It's such fun to listen to them.

My granddad would tell stories like that on purpose.

This was HILARIOUS! Loved it!

Hmmm, seems Wade was selling more than brushes, or Etta was, one of the two. This is just hillarious. I really enjoyed it.

Very fun to read--I could picture your fingers having a hard time keeping up with your brain as this story came tumbling out. Great job with the topic.
As hard as I laughed reading this, I can only imagine how you must have laughed writing it. Very, very funny material! Kudos!
This just got betterer and betterer the more I read! Masterful job.

Very entertaining. I worry some say that I will be like this - mixing up fact and fiction and not quite having a handle on reality!

Oh my...these old ladies are a hoot! I thought I recognized Gilligan's Island when she told about the coconut radio-lol! Very funny take on the topic. (:

You have a great imagination, and a great way of bringing it out. I thought to myself, "Well, they always say, 'truth is stranger than fiction'." Then I got to wondering, this sounds like fiction sprinkled with fact--or fact, mingled with fiction...Guess it was both!...Helen

A memory that plays tricks on you? Oh no! And I think I have one of those.This could be me in a few years!
No one can spin a yarn like you : ) Their conversation was reminiescent of dialogue one might hear from "Steel Magnolias" A delightful entry!

**smile ** My husband says that I add to my memories too. I say it's poetic liberty.

What a hoot! I was sorry to get to the end of this bit of fun. Great storytelling with lots of laughs.
What a great imagination you have. Even though the story was a bit far fetched, I could picture it happening. In fact, I think I'm going to find me a nice woman that is heir to a massive toothpaste fortune. Not because I want the money. I just want to stay cavity free for free. :)

Betty you have such a vivid and wonderful imagination. I loved this story. Well done my friend.
