Late today, apologies – staying at my daughter’s and the days a different shape. My pleasure at reading your entries no less, nor the difficulty of choosing a winner, therefore, too short of opportunity to insert fag papers between each of half a dozen, I’m naming three time: J E Deegan for ‘In a time past’, Dave for ‘The Liberator’ and Patricia for ‘Broken-hearted Clown’. Thank you all.
Words for next week (inspired by daughter’s kitchen) : cactus, gin percolate
Entries by midnight Thursday 9th August, words and winners posted Friday 10th
