Re: fall challenge - reminder

Thank you Stan and Jon for the reminder and update. :) On The Good Ship Underwood, it looks as if Jill The Sensible is at the helm, in which case she’s hoping to add at least 100k to the Challenge.

Jill, maybe the robin thought that it wanted to go into your conservatory and, as far as it was concerned, you can Go You Own Way! A few years ago, I looked out the back window and after blinking and rubbing my eyes a bit, I decided that yes, it was a hawk perched on the back of a chair inside our ...
