The idea is similar to No 897 by myself and Thomas Maeder, but the setting is completely different – among other things, all thematic moves occur on a single line here. The fact that the non-thematic moves are located at different places in the two solutions here is not really a disadvantage, you can even say it makes for nice variety.

Half of this night was regretting about having so short memory… (“девичья память”=girl’s memory – exactly about me!). I’m sorry, Kjell! The Special prize I gave you in the 1st Riga Balsam, and later on your joint No.897, but I’ve forgotten about this switchback shown. As an excuse I can tell only that the same way I don’t remember the content of most of my own problems 3 years ago…
Would it be correct to add “after Kjell Widlert & Thomas Maeder (JF#897)” ?
