Roylsden #83

by

Sheriff Cole rocked back in his chair, feet up on the edge of his desk. His eyes were closed but he wasn't asleep.
He was thinking.
Or, more accurately, trying to think: but his thoughts kept on going around and around in circles.
He knew who didn't do it - he discounted most of Roylsden on that score.
He believed he knew who could have done it. That accounted for three people.
And he was certain he knew who had done it. "Murdered all three," he muttered, "But why? Where in hell is the motive?"
And his thoughts rolled around again.

    What sorcery is this?
    I like it guys, though I wonder if a blue outline to the drabble box, like the one around the comment box, would be worth considering? A nice change though, and an improvement :)

    I can't possibly comment on who the murder(s) might be. But I am responsible for the colour change ;-)

    Honestly, it was just a case of making the header the background colour, and the background a light grey. Done. And I agree, it certainly looks better!

    If I ever manage to get my rebuild done I'll certainly have a good look at the styling/colours...but one step at a time!

    Indeed, one step at a time :) And you're doing a superb job on this site Michael, cheers!

    Hear, hear! It’s different and very clean and modern-looking. This really is a great site Michael; thanks for that. I know you’re super-busy, but is there any progress on being able to download our output to an Excel or Word file or something similar? I’m in the throes of writing a biggish novella (Fedeltà) right now and I’m hoping to publish it as a complete entity. Such a function as I described would be very useful... Thanks.

    Drew; this is fascinating. I still don’t know the fate of young Anna Cody. Can it be that a) she’s the killer and b) that she’s still alive??

    On that front Neville, things are not going so quickly -- I'll shoot you an email so we don't completely take over Drew's drabble :)
