Just catching up on the thread about Earth Day. I no longer participate in that since I learned that the founder of Earth Day was a whacko murderer. He's the one that murdered that girl (Honey, I think her name was.). He stuffed her body into a trunk and put it in the closet, if I recall. That was the end of it for me. I now celebrate Earth Day everyday and try to take joy from the bounties and the pleasures provided to us.

Oh Happy Day ... sorry the cat just came in -- seems she has ended the life of one of my squirrels that frequent the yard... sighs... Just hate that - I don't mind her being a good mouser but I am really fond of squirrels and watching them play in the yard.

Hope everyone's day is going great - My ISP was down most of the day yesterday - seems to be holding up ok this morning.   I surely missed all of you for Friday's event with Yak being down and then yesterday for all the events with my ISP problems.

Hope all of you are enjoying the beautiful weekend - sighs - I am still lamenting over that squirrel....

That is great, Mynnight. It is a difficult thing to do sometimes to put your soul out there for all to see. Maybe we can exchange books. I have two out. One is all poetry, Musing at La Poulaille. The other contains essays and a few poems about my experiences and love for tatting. TatWitt: What I Learned When I Learned to Tat. (I spent enough time trying to underline the titles of these books. How does this thing work??) I am in the process of editing three books for others. If you have need for an editor, let me know. You can E me anytime.

The Poetry Director

This position sneaked up on me.
What a surprise this was!
I'm as old and as slow as my computer is now
For the message I did not see.

I will be there to help your potential to reach,
To praise, to prod, or to poke.
The adage says those who can, do.
The ones who are left, must teach.


Please keep up the good work that ya'll do! (I can say "ya'll"-- poetic license, you know.)
I still have not been to every forum yet. I am trying, though. I will try to get in as much as possible. Teaching school is a full time-overtime job! And, these computers are about two minutes behind the words that I am typing as I speak!
Please bear with me.

A gracious good morning to all! Now, if the computer isn't slow as mol Asses today, maybe I can see what's been going on here. I hope you have a pleasant and quick day at work. For those of you who are retired, may your day be wonderful.

Good morning to all of you !!

It is a rainy day here in Charlotte - but a nice warm rain.  I awakened to my cat Sarinja climbing the screened window at my bed - begging to be let in -- She is one smart cat ...

Hope you all have a pleasant weekend - smiles

Everyone, I am writing to let you know that WordWeaver will be out for about a week. His computer crashed and he has ordered a new one from Dell.   He is emailing me from the library!   It has been a bad week for puter troubles it seems!
So keep him in your thoughts please.  He is very grateful for all of your congratulations, etc regarding his poetry picture win.  He misses everyone, and is anxious to return ASAP!
