  1. Does Marg befriend him? Did she get him to give up the information? What was in the wreckage? Inquiring minds want to know! Well done again John! Stay tuned for the upcoming challenge. I look forward to reading what you write next week. Be well my friend… ^..^

  2. Brigadier story is still alive! Wow. I liked the add on of Marg as a character. and would like to see the continued story.

  3. At last, a Dickus in custody! I thought this week’s opening sentence was just right for “Mysterious Island” 🙂
    I hope they find survivors from the helicopter crash – you’re leaving us hanging for another week on that one!
