That's a pretty extravagant prize for 1000 words.

It's sensible to work on the principal that governs cats: It never hurts to ask.

Hi jst5150,

I hope you didn't think I was complaining about the prizes. I think they're great. I was just being silly. And really, after this, I should enter. I'll try to work on something tonight.

Not at all. I didn't think of the T-shirt, which is relatively easy to bring onboard as a prize. :-)

I did it. (I sent mine in.) And I'm still toying with a second idea. It's a pleasant sort of challenge, short enough to knock off fairly quickly yet not too easy.

As usual, I have no idea if what I wrote was any good, but I'm pretty sure the spelling was spectacular.

Maryn, adequate speller

Josephine--Thanks for checking out the contest! I know you'd enter if you could. And thanks for the support! You haven't even seen my submission. LOL!

But you're already dangling an Air Force Reserve t-shirt as one of the winner's prizes!

LOL! Not me! I'm a glutton for a challenge, even if I end up getting stomped on.

Oh, I could have diddled my not-quite-there idea last night, but no-o-o, I had to watch lackluster TV and complain about being tired. They say winners never quit, but I seem to quit most nights about 8:00.

Well, I just suffered near-total humiliation in the latest Poetry contest, so, if things run true to their present form for me, your chances of a shirt might just be better than you think.
