YAYYYY, Allen
« on: May 04, 2009, 10:34 AM »
I just got this in and I haven't posted it yet, but I just had to say, "YAYYY, Allen!" You got an honorable mention in the IBPC for "Red Romance Dancing."

I was so thrilled! This made my day!

Now let me get to work and post the rest of the results in the proper place!

Congratulations Allen!  Why don't we see your pieces here at Splash?

Allen,

Well played.  Well played, indeed.

It is a breakthrough that a poem is selected which has a focus rhyming as one of its components. 

Keep writing.

PS

I think that Steve Meador is the dublinsteve who used to roam these halls more frequently than of late.  Congratulations to him as well.

I'll have to find it so I can enjoy it too, but I'm sure a Yaayyyy Allen is most apropos.
Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.

Yay  ~ Wow ~ What a suprise ~ I am truly surprised.

Good job, Allen.

And Bill, you're right, that is our Steve.
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

Shocking news! hey what can you say; Congrats Allen, I think you're deserving of such honour.
This clarifies, for me at least, that the IBPC definitely knows exactly what they are looking for.

Too bad Steve couldn't have represented Splash as well, I suppose he did anyways. Good job
