Neil gave us 'My Grandparents', one grandfather a miner, who became a policeman in Liverpool and the other a practical joker.

Nikki concluded the contributions with 'Gaga Billy', in which she describes a love for her maternal grandfather, the chequered life he led and why she considers she let him down.

Peter then treated us to 'The Heroine and Heroin', his contribution to an earlier prompt “Be Careful What you wish for.' A brilliant description of a heroin user who imagines herself to be like Joan of Arc, in her opinion the leader of a pagan witch craft.
