How about if Round Five starts with a more urban permaculture angle, for our urban permies?

The wind whipped between the sky-scrapers which seem to have...

Round Two C

The sun was breaking through the fog as I set
the timer. I wanted a pond, but digging is hard
when there are so many bones. I only had time
to dig a tiny puddle when the alarm rang, so
I figured I'd collect the bones to prove
my theory. The landslide of 1902 covered a whole herd
of lemmings. My archaeological dig was interrupted by heavy rain,
but Mom called me in for dinner before I could
think. When I returned, they were gone. My greedy neighbour
had stolen the entire collection! All my work building those things
was wasted. How can I get funding for real research,
when trespassing neighbours keep … wait! What’s that in the sky?!
It was circling vultures. They were circling something coming towards
Last week's roadkill. Aha! Another source of bones! I might
kill two birds with one stone. I reached for my
shovel again and headed for the street. The vultures wouldn't
stop circling. They were after me. The smell of carion

It looks like Kim got to the bottom of page 1 and replied do that. So do we try to tie that into the latest story? I've done that in other threads where we were talking about growing or building, and I replied to something that was dealt with six months earlier.
.......
Here's an idea that belongs in tinkering. Perhaps at the end of every subject that goes beyond one page, a little staff note could automatically appear, telling the reader that this is not the end, there's another page.
Staff note (Jay Angler) :

I suspect you're right Dale, I've inserted a "Round Two C" above and will delay the Round 5 starter sentence until an appropriate time. I will also start a thread in the Tinkering Forum, because your message deserves consideration (and would *certainly* have helped me when I was new.) https://permies.com/t/124283/page-notification-post-page

@ Su Ba - The consequence of that "fluff" post of yours, is that you need to think of 10 words to start the next round!

Everybody did great! Very "permaculture-ish" story! Canada's about to get hit with some really crappy weather, so I need something fun with warm thoughts and Su's from Hawai'i!
