I'm sorry, Jan.
You were right, and I was wrong.
And thank you Helen, for helping me to acknowledge her.
While I'm at it, I'd like to thank Michael and Linda Anderson, Christopher, Kamala, Doreen Peri, Dark Angel, Poet Devine, Nancy, Balladeer, Denise (who was the first to welcome me) and yes, even Ron (HE POSTED POETRY ONCE UPON A TIME) and yes, Sunshine, and Cpat Hair, and my yeti, my brian, aenimal, Alicat, Local Rebel, all the sues, Caroline, redheart angrybraids, and ultimately I want to thank spiked--for sending me here.
These are just a few from the olden daze, and know that those who are no longer with us have thrice the gratitude.
I just thought it might be nice to thank someone while they were still alive.
These are the people who covered the concrete floors of the Piphalls. I owe much more grats to the middle members, and the newer members, so if your name is not in that roll call, I say, hit the archives.
Janet Marie was the first one here, that made me tap on the screen, and tell others who were not yet online and understanding:
"There's peeeeeeeeeeeople in there."
(She was also the first one to remind me that there are "peeeeeeeeeeeeeople" out here, waiting for me.)
I love you Jan.
p.s. bsquirrel? where are you?
