BB Badge

Battle 73’s “Hindered” Winner is On the Hunt by David Williamson!  Congrats, Dave! Don’t forget to add the battle winner badge to your story! All the “hindered” stories were great this week! Good job, everyone. I’m looking forward to your Deterge bits!

OH man! Stories will be trickling in throughout the day. Not to worry! You have plenty of time left to post yours.  🙂

DETERGE: the simple definition = to cleanse thoroughly. See what you can come up with on the flash! 🙂
