After our 1st/2nd place finish in the work challenge, I always planned on doing a grinding image, but this is far better than what I envisioned! Congratulations on a truly superb image and a well deserved blue.

It is such a thrill to win a ribbon on DPC. Thank you, so much, to everyone who has left a comment.....I've just read my initial response, and whilst it seems lukewarm, I can assure you, it was just shock!!! I'm totally euphoric!!!

...and Roz, you got the title! Thank-you! ...(Skips off...... singing (..loudly and out of tune, of course,) and dancing!!!)
