Another week of top quality writing, with nary a red rose in sight. for which much thanks, despite the fact that it makes the task of choosing one piece above the others difficult in the extreme. Eventually, the choice came down to fake news or fancy tattoos, and I was unable to split them, so Patricia, for her ‘Modus operandi’ and David, for ‘Job description’ will have to teeter together on the topmost podium.
My thanks to all of you for posting and for the vital comments.
