I got a link from the December 15th AARP Bulletin. This may be my first and only unsolicited mainstream positive recognition. There I am, in the list, right below Ronni Bennett and not that far down from Millie Garfield.
Here's what they said:
Frank Paynter's Sandhill Trek (http://sandhill.typepad.com/sandhill_trek/) is about life on the farm, dealing with the inevitable loss of beloved pets, progressive politics, nature and other topics, rendered in sometimes lyrical prose.
I like the phrase "sometimes lyrical prose." I guess they missed the part where the mean son-of-a-bitch comes out and I rave and rage against the idiocy of a populace so dim-witted, deluded, or careless or greedy, so miserably callous and cold that they could elect the mass murdered from Crawford, Texas - Mr. Death Penalty himself - to not one but two terms in office. Wait. Maybe that's the "progressive politics" part.
