Thanks so much, judges, and also to everyone who commented on my story.

The truth can now be told--Junie was ME, and almost all of her horrified reactions are mine, when my own brother Andrew came home when I was about seven.

I deny the mighty burp, though.

Congratulations to all, and especially to Jim for that beautiful poem. I knew you'd place one day, Jim! Now, Jan, why does that NOT surprise me about you??

And great appreciation to the judges (Can you see me happy dancin'?) for noticing my poem that was birthed from my pastor's sermon several weeks ago.
