Extract from Article:
Keeping up with the English Jones' My neighbor, Gerry, the British guy who came here 23-years-ago, has a beautiful wife, a very nice home (that he keeps up like a palace), three wonderful adult children, and seven grandchildren.

How is this story? Does it 'read' in the UK? How could I have made it a better story?

Thanks,

I thought it was wonderful.

Believe it or not, this silly story has gotten more than 3400 hits since 8 p.m. EDT last night. When I went to bed I think it had, maybe, 35 or 40.

Have absolutely no idea why some stories in this series get a few dozen hits, some get a few hundred, and this one goes apeshit. I spent no more time writing it than many of those I thought were far better.

Thanks to each writer here because it is for you folks I write!
