Wha...? Dutch, are you saying you're a victim of the bushfires?
We've never said we were victims. Getting slightly miffed at the media for continually calling us that.
Did lose a house through it, but mine survived so the family have moved in here instead. It's all fine though. I just found the other report mildly ironically amusing as I could relate to it, although on a much larger scale.
Over 100 houses are gone in our immediate community. It was big and yukky! _________________

Actually... noticed a story on the front page of here... some webcomic artist of sorts had an apartment fire and people were getting all concerned and sending her money.
I found that ironically funny in a dark humored sort of way!
Hey, I donated what I could to the Australian Red Cross and am offering up two commissions for auction to hopefully raise a bit more as well. It's not much, but it's what I can do at the moment. I'm dealing with the results of a house fire myself, not that anyone aside from Casual noticed. So don't be givin' me grief, man. Or I may just come down there and drop off a corgi to eat all your sticks. Cause they do that, you know. _________________

Nah, sorry Mirz. I think I killed this thread too.
I think this is 'review thread' number four that has ended just as mine was next in line.
No, it's not dead- it's just on... vacation... while I am busy with other things. Like paying work, and self-published anthologies, and art contests. Critical Cat is at the bottom of my priority list, but I expect I'll get around to you sooner or later, Dutch.
Mirz, I'll take you off the list as per your request. _________________ Jonathon Dalton
