I'm so sorry folks - I'm drowning like a capsized duck
I'm afraid the poll will have to wait to the weekend - I still have entries to read

Sobs into cold mug of tea in chilly deserted office

(You'll see from comments though I did log all those posted up to about Monday)


sorrykitty

Here I am.
Still at the office but cheerfully anticipating the weekend - and even more cheerful to be back at my post:

a) thanking all our writers - double figures again ... you treasures all of you.
As one of the comments said - pouring writers indeed writing

b) getting the poll up only a day late... a mere bagatelle between such old friends as we

The poll runs for 7 full days - so results on the 9th not the 8th this month. thumbsup

Without further ado, proceed to your bandanny allocation - it is your vocation - to reward narration - and participation - without trepidation ...

Hey Hey Hey

It has been a while since she wound a custard coloured scarf around her swan-like...
But a little Casino style inspiration on jury duty has her back in the game.


The neck piece of desire goes to...

To...

Of course
She does have to wait until the boys have thanked all our wonderful contributors with a big... grouphug grouphug

wow thankyou  I feel very honored to wear the yellow bandanna (and I have a real one thumbsup - Thank you, Penski!). Both outlaws will be welcomed with open arms, it's been a long time. hellowave scared

I must come clean though, I did type the story on my cell phone, very slowly, during jury duty (it kept me occupied as I left my Poldark book in my car by accident and day time US TV is abysmal) but I also fixed it up some when I transferred it to the board. Not fixed well enough, though, as when I just read it again (because I just couldn't believe the results - I must have starred at the poll results for a good minute) there were some grammatical and spacing mistakes.

It all started with a visual of Kid Curry doing a rain dance as I watched the rain out the window of the Jury Assembly Room and then I had to figure out why he would be doing such a thing. I should have taken Calico's suggestion regarding the naked torso and been more specific.

Thank you everyone who voted, thank you to all the writers who contributed, and thanks for the yellow bandanna!
morerain awsome happydog

P.S. I have never been to an Native American run casino, never been to Las Vegas and the last time I was in a casino was when I took my nursing boards in Atlantic City,way back when. I do play pretty good penny ante poker when we play among friends. But then none of my friends are Hannibal Heyes.
