    Good one! :) Congrats! Jael....she was some character...Enticing him to come have a drink, and then ramming a tent peg into his temple while he slept. Wow! Talk about strong!

    Isaiah, my clever, skillful friend! Footles are NOT easy and you did a fantabulous job with these ones! I don't even think I can pick a favourite... I love them all. Big congrats on your superb win in my contest :)

    my bad, Isaiah. I misread. She had said, "at LEAST four footles" Dang, I should have done more than four birdie footles !! By the way, did you know that you can read a contest rules after it's closed. You go to your member area under your contest entries and find the name of that contest and click on it. I didn't realize I could do that until a few months ago!

    The master footler strikes again!...Only character I'm not familiar with is Laben but I soon will be!...#5 absolutely floored me - Tim

    Good ones. 4 and 5 I thought were the best ones. Was this for the contest? If so, she only wants four footles, just in case you were entering! (good theme)
