Congrats to all of you, not only the top 3 winners, but all the entrants. You've all done a remarkably good job of helping Stories Space celebrate its first birthday in style.

Thank you big time Lisa and the crew here at Stories Space...and tell the judges they have impeccable taste...happy8

I can't type much at the moment...still in that jumping up and down mode right now...hello1

I will say that I agree with Lisa's statement that the standard of the entries was impressive...heck, I wouldn't want to have to narrow it down to just three...

A big congrats to Madeleine and Louise as well...nice job you two...

Now let's all go celebrate...actually, it's a bit early here for drinks...I'll raise my coffee cup in a toast to all the winners though...

Cheers,
Alan.

Yeah Kudos to all.
You guys are lucky, I got the title to my contest entry all typed out, spell checked and ready to go.
If I only had a few more months to enter...

You and me both, Scooter. I have the plot outline, but that's it.
