Hi all! My name is Shana, and I'm new to the list. I've enjoyed reading all your EE-fanfic so far and looking forward to more great stories. Here is my first contribution. I enjoyed writing it and hope you enjoy reading it. A special thanks to all on the EE message board which I discovered through Earlydues website. Also, to Candii, who also recently submitted her first fanfic and encouraged me to "go for it". I'd love to hear feedback, so don't be shy.:)

Ode to Gary Hobson
Eyes full of beauty, mud puddle green,
Heart stopping smile, so rarely seen,
Voice smooth as honey, slight southern drawl,
Your burden----the paper, always on call.
Turtle-neck sweaters, flannel and denim,
5 o'clock shadow, cleft in the chin,
Thick dark hair, brows to match,
6:30 alarm, the sound of a cat.
Climb out of bed, stumble to the door,
Pick up the paper, read what's in store.
No time to relax, another save to make,
Gotta get going, more lives at stake.
Grumpy sometimes, and tightly wound,
Rarely a chance to let your guard down,
Frustration rises, no "thank you's" heard
No appreciation for saving the world.
No time for love, romance lost,
Choosing what's right at personal cost.
With simple needs and integrity to spare,
As Chuck would say, "We love you, Gar".
