1) Heyes and Kid hang out under a tree after their train breaks down. That is, Kid hangs out, Heyes is kinda restless.

Happy new year to one and all.

Happy new year hapny partyny hapny partyny


We had a delightful eleven stories under our Christmas trees for us - all wrapped up and sparkly with ribbon.

[Alias Alice as the bandanny holder will not be polling - she will of course, have received the traditional thank you cuddles as the boys packed their saddle bags for their visits to all the ladies who wrote]

It is now time to take a slurp of coffee, put last nights bottle(??s??) chbottle  oldy  into the recycling and to cudgel your New Year's brain as to which story deserves the last bandanny of 2016??

Happy New Year!
Sorry I haven't commented on the very enjoyable stories this month written for 'Under the Tree' - I don't  seem to have had a moment to myself all month, what with Christmas, family, relatives, presents, etc, etc - I'm sure you know just what I mean!  But I did enjoy all the stories and I was struck, as always, by what a talented bunch you all are!  (Special thanks to Witchita Red, who took the trouble to explain the origin of a word I used in my story last month, and also to congratulate me on my lucky win).
Well!  I've a good mind to keep the boys, and not send them back, but I'm sure you'd all come round here in a posse to get them, so - very reluctantly, I've posted them back to you. Damn!

We have winner!!!

It can't claim to be the most Christmassy of the stories... but it sure gave us drama and reflection.


The boys, all full of Alias Alice's hospitality will be making their way to...


[Drum Roll... Leaving you dangling - snirt, you see what I did there??]

Congratulations Inside!!! 2thumbs 2thumbs

Knew you had that one in the bag the moment I read it Inside Outlaw...that was a truly great piece. Congrats' on your winnings. What a great month to have the boys come for a visit.
