Now we know the difference bwtween twit and twitter. I love tham all by any other name

Laura, I like the last one especially! And I love the photo of Monty...watching big dogs leap around in the snow helps remind me that winter is not all that bad...

Why DO poets always read in that voice?

Laura, loved your short story on your association with Lucille. I also remember the trips down to S.Md. at times, and your great friends, Lucille being one of them.

I also remember her help at difficult times she gave us, and that alone is rare.

What is even rarer, is my luck in finding you, and your ever persistence in putting up with me.
For that alone, I am a very lucky man.

Laura, I got confused as usual with responses.
The dogs are just beside themselves in this deep deep winter wonderland, but I am tired of it.
Let the winds of march blow out the snow, and the showers of april come none too soon, and erase all this white stuff.
Tire chains for the tractor @$119.00 no thanks.
Monte is his usual self, ready to go with me at a drop of a hat.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
