Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

Thank you all for making ABCTales such a vibrant place to be. I've been choosing our picks of the week, with others, for some time now and I don't think I've ever struggled to find at least two or three stand out pieces of brilliance.

Story of the Week goes to Terrence Oblong for the wonderful 'Sleep Olympics' and our Poem of the Week goes to Philip Sidney for 'Trees on the Arapuni road'. Read them both and you'll forget the weather, the politics and everything else that's rubbish:

As you all probably know, we run the site on a voluntary basis but we do need to pay for our techie and for the server as well as other small sundries (the ABCTales Ferrari for instance, and the cherry-themed helicopter).

We don't want anyone to have to pay to use the site but we would be very grateful for donations especially after the massive accountant''s bill we just had. Please click on the JustGiving button at the bottom of the page and you will have our undying gratitude. 


The Inspiration Point is here:

I hope to see some of you tomorrow at our Reading Event -  have a lovely weekend!smiley
