This in not Louise.  I don't think.  But he obviously believes that the prize hidden by Laura Lam in Aberdeen is rightfully his!  Laura added a copy of Pantomime, her wonderful book to the prize package.

Thanks again to all who played.  Thanks to all my hiders, and to the people who kept the secret so well!  I went with the old adage, If you want something done, ask a busy person!  And many busy people paused to help me have a wonderful birthday!

Now.  What shall we do next year?  Happy March to all!  In like a lion and out like a lamb!
