Only two entries this week but what a pair! No, I'm not talking about the pair of ... um...thrusters...on Nug's probe as it penetrates the deepest reaches of space. I'm talking about a pair of great entries from two great machiners.
Nug's entry is beautifully done...as usual...but also made me spit take my coffee, and HerrD's combination of art and description is pure genius. The details in both pieces are remarkable.
So therefore I refuse to make a choice. I can't. I could not name one the winner without feeling that I would be short changing the other. So congratulate each other boys...you both earned it!
