    Thanks, man. I’m back at work now and finding it tough to keep things going but I am. My music challenge replaces my writing for the TBR challenge which was a bit random. Odd, because the randomness of this deal me in challenge is really appealing.

      No problem.🙂 I agree on the randomness, which has been a big attraction for me also, along with spotting “coincidences” in the order my stories are dealt out. I confess that at first I didn’t think I’d care as much for your “journalism” version of DMI, but those ‘stories’ have turned out to include several of my favorites from the group this year.
