Well done, Gyppo.

I'm going to make this topic sticky until you set the next Challenge - just to keep it at the top of the page.

Be gentle with the newbies. ;D

"Thankyou, Dear People.

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who finally voted, and to congratulate the two worthy challengers.

"I'd also like to thank everyone who, over the years, has helped me become the writer I am today.

"Now I'll think of something to extend you a little, yet still be gentle enough to tempt the newbies."

A clever response. Mr Citabria has a long journey ahead, perhaps it would comfort him to know that I voted in his favour.

thatollie. Thank you; but how did you guess which was mine? In the words of Chairman Mao, “Not everything in the world that has chutney in it, is Citabria’s.”  :D

Moon the noun, not moon the verb ;-)  And please don't show me your 'bag' either. ;-)

How did I know? I could say I know your style, pet phrases and such. After all we've been writing on the Story chain/Station shorts for a bit.
But this is what gave it away, "Same thing happened to me. Here’s what you do. . . write about something totally different and just give it the title “strange land”. She’ll never notice."
