Finally for this week, my thanks to Rob at deviantArt - he and I were discussing What If story ideas, and I casually mentioned the idea of a certain group of home invaders hitting a typical Seventies American family - specifically, the Brady family...


I will be back, as always God Willing, on or around the 12th of March, but until then, I remain,

Welcome to the New Year

 Yes, it feels the same as the Old Year - possibly worse, given events in the US - but I do believe it will get better.

In the meantime, let the WABAC machine let you Get It On...

A new Secondary School Tie-Up Game from Amanda Lu...

Christmas has passed, but how did these four women hear The Queen's Speech...

And so this is Christmas

 Yes, it's a week late - my plans had been to post the update last week, but - well, life happened, again, but here we are...


Starting with the second set of Silent Night tales...


The latest tale of the Croonford Girls Detectives...


A woman considers It's Only Been Five Years...


Krys goes on a date and Brooke enters hell in the next part of Dancing in the Dark...


And finally, a tale of what might happen if The Gentlemen Robbers met a certain Barbie...


On the last tale...  this has been a very strange year, and I am grateful you as my readers have stuck with me through it.  Next year, one of the things I want to do is more requests - in two particular areas.  One is these stories - if you have suggestions of people or characters my rogues gallery could visit, drop me a line.


The other is Jay Edwards and Mrs McPhee - the invitation is there for you to suggest families for them to pay a visit to, and I will try to accomodate.


Otherwise - this is the last update of 2020.  Please, accept my belated best wishes for Chanukah, Eid, Festivius or Solstice, but do allow me to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and may we all have a much, MUCH better 2021.


I'll be back around about the 14th of January, as always God Willing.  Until then, I remain,
