Phew, for a moment or two there I thought we were going to have a two way race!!!

Huge huge hugs to the ladies who broke the duck early, and wry smiles and head rubs to our trio of wire dodgers!!!

Now its time for a gal to do what a gal has to do... and make your mind up which of the stories gets your bandanny vote??

The boys will be round to every one of our lovely writers to deliver:

a) An april shower of hugs and kisses heart 
b) A yummy easter egg... What was that - don't talk with your mouth full, Kid

Strike the egg - you will get a cute little bunny to bounce!!

ASJ is SO instructive!  Very Happy  In case any other Yanks had no clue what "break the duck" means, I looked it up and learned it comes from cricket--which ain't exactly a real common sport this side of the Pond, Calico!--and it means to do something for the first time.

Though how I could bring myself to use a cricketing metaphor when only that very morning we got the news that we'd been beaten by that nation so famous for the great game...

The dang NETHERLANDS for pete's sake,

I don't know!


(NOT that I have anything against the Netherlands, but it must be a bit like the States being beaten at baseball by - I dunno - Iceland. Sigh.

133/5 to 88/10

What an absolute shower. )

You can see why my boys prefer rugby! Could never get the grass stains out of their whites when they played cricket either!

I was going to wire dodge too but the darn web wouldn't let me on the site.

So now I have to figure out a way to turn my story into something Foolproof sm

Hello Lovelies!!!

Did you all get your 'Thanks for Writing' cuddles from the boys????

Good, good.

Well, we have a three way tie, but it's a thirty day month so that splits perfectly.

This is the way it works!!!!


Wichita Red gets ten days of ex-outlaw guest duty AND a bandanny trimmed with Easter Chick Pom Poms...

Rosie Annie gets ten days of ... ditto, ditto, except her bandanny Pom Poms are little Easter Eggs...

And Wire Dodger Extraordinaire Remuda ... Ten Days - and her Pom Poms are teeny tiny bunny tails. (Not that she needs any help bouncing!!)

AND... All three gals CAN poll next month.


Share nicely ladies, and don't wear them out.


Congratulations on three very different takes there.

Well done fab 3 - share nicely now!   

If I want the boys back in my life I'm going to have to take drastic action it seems - hurt one of them -or both.  
Perhaps kill one of the - or both!   Twisted Evil   minz   Shocked   brb

Congratulations to our three winners(wow a three-way tie!) I've read the stories this month, but haven't commented yet-all of them were great, awsome  so I can see how the vote got split.
