Re: 1190: "Time"

Ok then, no small stream or rivulet. :? But what could it be, there is another one. Cobbled streets? They would have commented on that I guess. Given that there's at least two of whatever they are, I'm surprised they haven't commented. Maybe it's just grassy patches as they leave the dunes? Are the...

Did Cueball fasten the ladder to the structure? and They can't lift the ladder because the bottom is trapped in the sand, and the top is trapped between the post and the plank.

Do you really think that will happen?

Maybe not, but I'm too busy currently, so I'll have to wait for when I have more time.

Re: 1190: "Time"

I note that some posters still have their (mod-assigned?) lables under their usernames on the right.

SBN is still Saved and on the previous page azule is also Saved and bigcrag92 is still Cardinal.

Karmann's is still going on about hats and HAL9000 is still Not Red.

She's asking because she can't see over the big block of sand she built.
