Hiya folks! I got some GREAT NEWS (well .. for ME anyways)! My pome "BARTHOLEMEW THE SNAIL" just won FIRST PLACE in this month's HUMEROUS POETRY CONTEST! I got an AWARDICON ..a MERIT BADGE .. and LOVELY LORNDA'S "QUEEN OF COMEDY" TRINKET (or a copy thereof), which she DESIGNED HERSELF!! I'd post it on here for youse all to see, but I dunno how to do that yet.
Muchos, Muchos thanks again, Lornda! For EVERYTHING! Your contest ROCKS!! Especially now that I WON it! WOO HOO, eh?
Hiya folks! I just wanna say "MUCHOS, MUCHOS THANK-YOU'S" to LILLY & GABRIELLA for my brand-spankin' new & BLITHERING GORGEOUS "CHAMPION CHEERLEADER AWARD" .. which I do NOT deserve (but I'm keeping it anyway)!!
Most of you guys don't remember me, I have no doubt. Nevertheless and anyways, I'm hereby officially announcing my triumphant return to WDC, from several months of forced sick leave. I hope to pick up where I left off - writing stupid (but hopefully funny) little poems n' stuff, entering contests, reading and reviewing your various works, while forging new and renewing old friendships.
Ergo, I invite you all to visit my humble port if it pleases you to do so, and I will do likewise to yours. See you out there, eh?
Good Morning folks! On this day, I rejoice! For today, ladies n' gentlemen, is my 46th Wedding Anniversary! And as it happens, it is also that of my lovely wife, Sue!
Ergo, as I appeared at the bottom of the staircase this morning, I greeted my lucky missus with an uncharacteristically cheerful, "Good Morning, my Darling (I've never called her "darling" in my life)! Then I exclaimed, loud enough to spook both the kitty-cats, "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!"
She set down her crocheting, peered over top of her bi-focals, made eye contact and returned my greeting: "Happy Anniversary!"
"Alas ... " I confessed, "I have nothing to give you, for I am still broke from Christmas!"
To which she smiled sweetly and replied, "Ditto!"
And so it is, the pleasantries dispensed with, that we may both now go about our daily affairs. As for me, I'm heading back to bed for a couple more hours.
