I bet that Queen was surprised.  That is really thinking ahead for me. Personally, I am lucky to be one move ahead, let alone something like this.  Something for me to aspire to.

I guess.

A challenging puzzle on a Sunday? No Queens to sacrifice? I must be in an alternate reality.

Don't you mean the game posted by cheetahch in post #90 ?  If so, ...Kh8 is one of the mistakes people make - it has to be g8.  After  1...Kh8 ..

1. Kh5 Kh8 2. Kh6 Kg8 3. g7 Kf7 4. Kh7 Kf6 5. g8=Q

And a drawn position is turned into a win for White !!
