    • Sadly the indomitable Marg is still on the missing list Ali! I suspect she is an assett to the Brigadier and worth the effort. I hope you managed to assuage the hunger pangs ~ πŸ™‚

  2. A great continuation from last weeks’ episode. I love the way the mouth-watering images of the pizza are just Marg’s hallucinations. The descriptions are excellent. An exciting and evocative read, John. πŸ™‚

  3. The dream was very vivid and this continuation is great!
    It is clever how you are fitting these prompts to continue Marg, Colonel Tom, and The Brigadier’s adventures.

    • Thanks Francesca ~ It started as an extra bit of fun and has now become an added dimension. I am stitching them all together to form a novella, then perhaps I will base the whole thing on a book. I am glad you re enjoying them. πŸ™‚

  4. Mozzarella cheese melted over beautiful black olives, succulent tomatoes, mouthwatering mushrooms, with chili peppers and meaty pepperoni. The dough was as light as a snowflake …. When is lunch! Great descriptions!
