    Ken, pace yourself! You are going to run out of your 7 entries before the week ends. You might miss out on some good late-joining targets.

    Well, if I do end up 'hitting the wall', I can always do a few 'non-competes'! Hey, I've done it before!

    But I am starting to hold back a bit, waiting for the weather to settle (because that is the 'random' factor in random.org), so I can, maybe, perhaps, just hopefully, get a pull that would put Jack Tomalin squarely in the crosshairs! (I already know what I want to do for (to?) him; I just need the right mix!)

    Oh my! I drew two of Jack's items. But I have someone else in my crosshairs. I didn't think of picking on Jack, but that should have been obvious. I'll leave it to you. Good luck on your selections.

    Nice one, Ken! (#2)I guess barbult saved the Carolina Parakeet. Hooray! (#3) Great illustrated story! Your stories are always fun.
    LOL, Totte, Jaderail's 3-martini lunch will never be forgotten. I love the language confusion.
    MelanieL, I love this one, and it does look like Ken's photo. What a hoot! You are my next target - I doubt I can do justice to your wonderful droll style, but I will give it a try.
    OK, Totte, I will add my renders to the voting thread. I am a bit more addle-brained than usual this month.

    Pull #3:
    Playground Set 1 Poses
    Green Sea Turtle
    Gia Hair
    Bananaquit

    Title: Unannounced Visitors
    (A Day in the Life of MelanieL)

    The day started like any other. MelanieL was putting the final touches on her outfit for an upcoming cosplay convention, when she heard the most god-awful racket coming from outside. She instantly got a mental picture of a cat being sucked into a vacuum cleaner -- a Dyson UltraSuck 9000 Magnum, from the sound of it. She ran out, behind the house, to see her neighbor, Laura, sitting in the strangest-looking contraption she had ever seen!

    Interesting idea Ken, I like it!
    Melanie as a time traveler,

    One day in KenOBanions life

    The Waterloo Symphonic Orchestra is performing Ken OBanion's new symphony, Wellington's Victory in D minor. This first performance was set to take place at an old mountaineering facility in Himalaya, as the very eccentric composer and conductor KenOBanion decided he wanted to perform this as close to God you could get without having to die doing it.

    The waterloo Symphonic Orchestra has invented their own sound using the not yet patented Waterloo porcelain section. The percussion section plays on old barrels with radioactive waste. The Cesium-137 has a nice ring to it.

    Awesomely insane, Totte!! Kudos!!

    One question, though: where did you find the baton? I want one!

    And..., this ain't it.

    My pull for Round Four:

    2321 - Budding Romance: Stephanie 3 & Michael 3 Couples Poses
    2446 - Lisa's Botanicals - Dead Bushes

    Half romantic, and half.... I'm going to have to think about this one a bit! (I can't even figure out who to target!)

    That is a great one, Totte! I love the porcelain and percussion sections. The green vapor is just awesomely nuts. "as close to God you could get without having to die doing it." I can imagine you were laughing a lot when you did this one. I would have been, especially if I were a bit unhinged from the Nordic winters.

    Well the sun went way over the yardarm some time ago, but,
    Ken OBanion Wonders...
    ... was that last Martini just one too many?

    Well done, and you nailed Ken (from his photos anyway)

    Oh, yeah, Totte! Spot-on! She even got my nose perfect!

    (Actually, it's a little creepy, when you think about it! Maybe I ought to lock down my Facebook, after all...!)
    Actually I'm such an old Luddite, I wouldn't even know how to find you on Facebook - I've only ever used it by following a link to DAZ's page in the old days when they handed out free vouchers there fairly regularly - so my image is entirely based on your tiny avatar here.

    Hey, I'm only just catching up with the action since Sunday night (I was out nearly all day yesterday).

    @Luci45 - love the Totte gangnam dance! And thanks for the comments - but now you've got me afraid...very afraid!

    @Ken - Only just seen your oeuvre #3 - great stuff, I love it! Though if that's meant to be me ... ??? You've definitely never seen a photo!

    @ncamp - love your RichardH render - very funny - yes, I did click for full size and love the little details!

    @Totte - you Ken render is amazing - I love all the little details in the pic, and the story is great too - suitably zany.

    A Day in the Life of Scott-Livingston
    Renowned hair expert, Scott-Livingston, works out of a modest shop in the old converted West Park Sanitarium. He is doing quite well, in spite of (or perhaps because of) his unorthodox tools and techniques, judging from the fancy sports car he parks across the street.

    Thanks, Totte. I thought I could see a pretty good resemblance, considering I don't have the morph, skin, clothing, hair or headpiece of the "real" Scott.

    That's why this current entry is making me very nervous; I don't want to torque anyone off unnecessarily, and that's the direction this one seems to be headed!
