Hopefully one of the things you will be thankful for is that today I am announcing a FREE TOPIC
A free topic is completely optional. There will be no vote.
It is also open to any and all who wish to post their entry to this thread. You DO NOT have to be a current contestant to submit a Free Topic entry.
In this particular case, there are two Free Topics.
Giving of Thanks
and the less traditional
You can write one or both. Have fun with them.
For the sake of having a deadline (and giving people an idea of when the next REAL topic might be posted) let's say Monday November 30th at 1pm EST.
(as usual for topic threads of any kind, please *only* post a link to this thread.)
