HA! Not the first time I thought I'd added comments on a challenge only to see that I hadn't.

Yup, this is me a few years after doing something similar. I was in a lot of pain shooting this and struggled to cut (half) my hair before having 1 attempt at getting a shot.

I kept thinking I'd have another go but never did although I did wander around for almost a week like this!

It feels kinda cold right now.

Previous attempt (I prefer the old version)that scored 0.12 higher but finished 5th.

I hope you're feeling all better now, Andi.

I know the rest of us are... after a good belly laugh!

Congratulations on your finish!

Andy, how many months in advance do you plan this? Congratulations on the ribbon.

Andi? Is this YOU?

What a way to win a ribbon. And congratulations on that nice golden yellow one.

(I would say something funny about shearing all those sheep on your island, but maybe I'd better not.)

Thanks for all the comments and votes folks. I've been around (on and off) for about 12 years and think I doubled my ribbon tally in 2015 :)

I've been unwell over Christmas and ended up with my hair like this for over a week!

Susan, your right, I much preferred my first version of this shot a few years ago and Jeb, I know your only being serious ;)
