Hello everyone, how are we all?
Full of turkey, trimmings, chocolate, wine (hic) and the odd Rennie??

Well, time to push aside that depleted Quality Street tin, put the empties in the recycling bin, pop your reading glasses on your nose and give some thought to the first serious decision of the new year...

Which story - out of a seasonally splendid batch - deserves the first 2013 awarding of our much coveted yellow bandana??

Hard choice 'cos you ladies have provided a feast of flashbacks and the occassional coupe of christmassness!!

BUT - do mull and vote.

Without further ado, your choices are...

Hello everyone!!!

purr d]](Hurry yup!! Hurry Yup!!!) [Will you be patient, you dang cat!][/i]

Time to see which lucky writer gets the much coveted yella...

purr (Yadda, yadda!! Gimme!! GIMME!!) ]Sound effect of frantic cat being pushed off laptop]

Yella bandanny. First of all, thanks to everyone who played and gave us a wonderful clutch of seasonal lovelies to see us into the new year...

purr (Weeeeeeoooooooooowwwwwlllllll!!! NOW!!! NOW!!!) [Sound effect of claws scrabbling at underside of keyboard.]

Of course, in one sense, every story is really a winner...

purr (But, in a more precise sense, MY story is THE winn...) [You really don't get the concept of gracious acceptance speech, do you?]

And the boys will be visiting every writer to give the 'Thank You' cuddles.

But, this month the bandanny goes to... let me open the envelope...

purr (Yeah, right - like you haven't been watching like an Orc since Sunday!!)

Gosh. What a surprise! It's our very own Calico!!!

purr (Mine!!!! MINE!!!!) ]Sounds of a bandanny being ripped from November winner and dragged to basket.]

Thank you so much!! I am overwhelmed... Awwwww... Head butts all round! Modesty overcomes me. To think I could win a bandanny when there were so many great stories...

purr (Enough already, let the Stroking of the Cat commence. HEY! Lady! Step away from the bandanny and no one gets the claw!!)

...When there were so many great stories. [Fume] Excuse me - I have a feline who needs to be de-smugged. brb

Well done Calico for an brilliant story and for winning the bandana, which I know is already fastened around your furry neck.

Don't be too rough with Heyes...remember he has to last you a whole month!

Thank you all for the cat-fussing!! The Calico is purring like a over-heated motor in her new yella blankie.
purr

Now, let me share something sweet - about the best ginger Tom in the world...

Last night we had gone for our regular Wednesday 'married couple eating Italien and yakking to each other' night, when...

He tapped his glass, said he had a message from the ether - and produced a yellow bandanny for me to wear for the evening -which he had snuck out of the house.
What a GOOD Tom!!!

P.S. Penski,
The Calico knows she is delinquent on her VS - but is making all kinds of good resolutions for a fresh start this weekend!!
