    Just finished my entry - http://hub.me/ajJsj
    I do hope it measures up to the some of the other fine stories that I am reading as a response to this challenge.
    It seems like most of HP has been rather stale lately. I hope we can perk things up!

      Ann, you need to redo the link.  It leads to a dead end 410 page.  Sorry.

      Try this link (the shortened version) http://hub.me/ajLy7
      It seems no longer possible to just copy and paste the hub URL any more; why is that (along the top of the hub page)?
      Hope this works!  I'm useless with the techy bits!

      cam8510posted 2 years agoin reply to this

      That works, Ann, plus I have it on my page as well along with all the others.  .  I still use the long URL when building links and have had no problems.  Strange.  I'm glad we have your story up and running.

    Here's my link Chris:

    http://tillsontitan.hubpages.com/hub/The-Cane

    It took me a while because I wasn't sure about it.  It is less than 1,000 words but I felt something might be missing.  Probably because it had to be less than 1,000,  I never say less when I can say more wink
