Some great stories in there. Massive gratz to everyone and extras for our new writers.

Thanks Gordi for once again, giving us all something to do other than get mad at each other in politics threads, you are a bloody diamond, mate.

Loved your story Sprocket, it really conveyed this feel of freedom. Don't know what it is about motorcycles that do that (Easy Rider type stuff).

Congrats, you deserved it!

And highvein--- we were practically tied. Great story.

Congratulations to the new writers and glad everyone's writing!

Thanks to Gordi and DTOM!!! Great job running this contest every month!

Once upon a time there was a fairy, he found life cruel an unforgiving.

People stopped and stared, but he accepted that as it was a shared experience amongst others of his ilk.

He assumed that all fairies shared this blight, until one day another fairy just so happened to buy a beer and settle next to him.

A casual conversation ensued, both of them chewing the fat on the highs and lows of fairy life.

All of a sudden a loud raucous noise erupted from the ambient noise of the people in the pub.

" You " was all the fairy heard before a thundering beer wench came forth, two massive steins full of lager
casually toted in one of her masculine hands.

"You !" She exclaimed as she plonked down the steins.

"Are you the one who parked in my spot ?"

Twas me I replied meekly.

She then demanded that I move my car immediately !

Since she was huge and I am just a fairy, I replied ...

Fairy Nuff .

The end.
