:clap: Good to see them rolling back in already...

...but a request as you're posting them back at the beginning of the thread can you either put a link to the post you're putting the latest batch into or say what numbers you've assigned to the newest drabble when you let us know at this end of the thread please? :oops:

As you fill up those reserved posts it'll get harder for the older and feebler forumers to find them... :character-oldtimer:

Good thinking Jano. :clap:

From now on I'll say what numbers the new ones are (I'm not faffing about with a link :roll: ).

Sheesh! :roll: Can't win, can I? :lol:

I could have pooh-poohed your original suggestion and said that as the stories were all together in numerical order, I shouldn't have to give a link or say what numbers had just been added, assuming that everyone could remember which stories they'd already read and which ones they hadn't. But I didn't. If I had you'd only have called me snarky (again! :lol: ).

Instead, I commend your suggestion and for that I get called "old and feeble!" :o :lol:

Wimmin! Huh! :roll: Can't live with 'em, can't live with 'em! :dance:

I think I've got something for you Pooh, it's going to need a fair bit of tinkering though. I just can't get it to flow properly. In any case it'll be a nice guilt free distraction from a problematic chapter I'm working on.

I might even get into the habit of doing these drabbles, they're like sudoku for writers.

I love killer sudoku especially designing my own, somewhere on this forum there's a 12 sudoku's of Xmas I posted for Batty.

As for tinkering and being a writer, I'm not the latter, so don't have problems with the former. 8-)

BTW in your avi it says "Land of Sea and Granite." How can a land be a sea? :? :lol:

Not really, coz land and sea are opposites. Something is either the land, or it's the sea. Tulip is not the opposite of land. :dance:
