A somewhat uncomfortable week, seeing what each of you managed to do with a cactus and some gin!
Even being ultra-picky this week my short-list went out of control again, but for once two tales by the same author kept rising to the top and I nominate Terrie as the winner for her double helping of the SAS Diaries, numbers 15 and 16.
This weekly experience of reading both posts and comments is never-endingly pleasurable – thank you all for contributing so generously to it..
Words for next week: fork quagmire unborn
