Well, my dad Passed Away this afternoon. I have to call my stinkpot brother and my biological mother to let them know tomorrow because I did not get the call until 8:30 pm CST tonight and besides it is too late to call along with being a little too upset to make the calls tonight anyway. Besides, I think they were both in bed or going to bed if I were to call them.

I am ok, I am dealing with it the best I can right now. I am debating whether or not to go to bed tonight though. I do still have some paperwork I need to finish up on and get emailed out by tomorrow. I am just taking a break from it right now because of my dad's death.

Friendly note: I am sorry I meant to post this In my blog but I was not thinking and posted it here in the newsfeed first.
Thank you,Richard Is Very Thankful! ! I am still up, I would like to write poetry; I just do not know what to write right now.
I am very sorry for your loss, Sharmelle. My heart and prayers are with you. *Hug1**hug**Hug2*

Now because I have to move in April well I should be moving in April if I can find a place. I have Marvelous Friend , who has offered to help me out with the contest from March until May. I want to thank her for doing this for me because she is a newbie and is willing to step up and help me during this time. If you need any further help please go to LegendaryMask💗 while I am out.
I just wanted to say I would be more than willing to help out also. Just let me know how I can help. Best of luck to you in moving. This is Women's History Month and it should be a great topic-I am definitely going to be doing some writing on this subject on my own if it isn't part of the suggestions. Just let me know about helping out, I haven't run a contest but have been around since 2006 on this site. Just trying to make more writing friends and do to what I can.
I've Have Been Pied lol!!!

Thank you, Ninja Monkeys!!!

Ok, I have a quick question for you all that have participated in my "Poetry Topic of the Month Contest before this past February 2021. I have it where you may add three poems per month, It has been that way since the contest started. I had forgotten about it after one month of having four poetry entries and I went to two poetry entries instead of three poetry entries after that. I realized it was supposed to be three entries in January 2021 so I added it back to three poetry entries for February 2021. Anyway, what I am trying to get to is do you feel that's too many and overwhelming for you to enter that many poetry entries each month? If so please let me know and I'll be happy to change it back to two poetry entries a month again this month. Please post as you wish here or by email about this matter ok.
I would think that as long as they don't HAVE to do 3 entries, that more is better because if they want to enter only 1 poem, they can. But if they feel inspired to do 2 or 3, they can do that as well. But that's just my opinion. *Bigsmile*
I'd say that if you want to allow 3, then allow three, as long as you don't require an entrant to write and submit all three. some folks might enjoy being able to submit more entries, while others may only have time to do one. Just my 2 cents. I hope it helps.
Thank you, Schnujo, and Patrece~! You both make good points. I'll leave it the way it is I would just like to let everyone know they do not have to add all three entries each month, but they can add up to three entries a month. I'll encourage it from your first poetry entry and second if you do two, but please do not feel you have to add more poetry entries when I do that ok. I am just giving encouragement for more when I do that ok.
