Because my entry isn't about rust. I thought you used the term "rust" as in nothing, make up your own.

This is a very open and inviting prompt. I'm not terribly good at Totes Realistic Stuff, but I'd want to give it a try for this. It seems there is enough time. Maybe I will. Hm.

Golly, thanks! I'm currently watching #AnotherContestGroup, but I'll think about joining. In fact, having just read the FAQ on the WP, I think I'll take you up on the offer of the WP. I'll put it in for the first place prize.
