Very creative. Now you have ME worrying and wondering about Old Mate.
Very creative read!

Congratulations! Good story.
Congratulations, Belinda, for placing 1st in the Intermediate division and 8th overall. Does this mean you're moving up to the Masters division?

Your Old Man was a moving character. The story was well told through the eyes of the narrator. I enjoy reading your work.
Congratulations, Belinda, on your EC place! I really enjoyed your story but it left me wondering if it's based on a real character or just fiction. Great writing!
Hi Ellen, based very loosely on a real neighbourhood character of mine, but completely fiction :)
Bonnie, I don't think I go to Masters. I'm a bit confused about when someone should move actually! I've had one EC 3rd place. My query is, does a person need 3 EC 1st places to move, or 3 EC places (1st, 2nd or 3rd) to move? Not sure where I should go to ask either?
Belinda, Congratulations on your win in the advanced category. Thankfully old mate had a change of heart after all those many years.
I enjoyed your unique take on the topic.

Congratulations on your EC placing.

In answer to your question about entrance to the Masters' Level: It's based completely on the number of times you placed in the Editor's Choice, i.e. three Editor's Choice placings. Once that criterion has been met, you move up a level, in this case you would now be Masters.
