  2. So, a very handy clue was found on the typewriter. You worked that in nicely to fit in wiith this week’s prompt. I’m very impressed you’ve kept your series going for so long. The indomitable Marg keeps going strong. Well done, John. 🙂

    • Try it Eric ~ I am enjoying the challenge of weaving the storyline into Bab’s excellent prompts. I never know what to expect ~ This is the Twelfth consecutive week so far 🙂

  3. I had to laugh at the message found on the ribbon. I remember that so well. Reading the ribbons to find out who said what. Haha! I had forgotten this little bit of info. Looking forward to the next clue in the series.

    • Thanks Joy!~ That ribbon effect seemed to be lodged in my memory and popped up as soon as I saw the typewriter~ I’m glad you are enjoying the series so far ~ 🙂

    • Thanks Ali ~ Like all good executives I think Marg has many right hands to proffer help and advice. Although that could be a good diversion. Thanks again for reading and taking the time to comment on this my friend. 🙂
