Terrific story, Joyce, and good motivation to reread Beowulf some day. Fine lesson, too, about relying on wits when brute force isn’t an option. - Nick

You know what they say: age and patience will often defeat youth and energy.

Really good last line pun.  Chance encounters with something as fierce as wild boar is why God invented 12 gauge shotguns.  Jimt
Enjoyed this. I am going to have to figure out how to insert illustrations into a story.

I love this kind of folk- my husband can survive anything with a matchbook and duct tape. Not me, but I sure love reading about them. Really good!
Enjoyed this as much as your Scandinavian stories. Kept waiting for a troll to come out from the ice.
