So we are on a roll folks, Rhen has already chosen 26 and much to my delight Astrid has chosen number 27 for next week already. She was a wonder and posted it in the comments and I’m really hoping she’s starting a trend and someone will select another number this week but before we see what Rhen’s selection brings lets saddle up and recap WESTERNS.
Well I’m going to admit that WESTERNS went a lot better than I anticipated but this week we have a real difficult one (for me at least). We are wandering into the field of …
Ok, so I needed to google this one and Wikipedia provides the following definition:

The sun hung its head as darkness reached out with spidery fingertips to caress the fragile skyline but others watched eagerly as the moon’s dappled light illuminated the forest and a willowy figure slipped into view.
The scarecrows had come to play.
PS Don’t forget to pingback.
