Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
Hello, everybody! Welcome to my first weekend challenge!

I am a bit of a fanatic about geography (among other things, which shall play into future challenges), and this weekend embraces it. I live in Ohio, and I have an alphabetical list of the 88 counties to play with this week.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to give me a number between 1 and 88 and I will give you the corresponding county AND a list of a few interesting locations therein. If you give me a tale of 200+ words or an image that plays with either the county name or a location within said county, I will write as many words in my WIPs as you do in the story or I will give you a drawing based on your artwork. I can't make icons or anything like that -- yet - but I can draw a little. (All I ask is your patience in return.)

You have till midnight Thursday in your time zone to play with this, so -- Ready? Steady?

GO!
