I knew not my dreams,
For I had none.
I only wanted to get away,
That was the name of that song;

I walked for miles,
I rode the rails,
Did things I should've for survivals sake,
It seems like only yesterday.

Ahhh . . . That is just delightful, Maureen. I couldn't have timed it any better, could I? Yes, I imagine you do have plenty of memories on that date.

Hello Lori. I don't grimace so much anymore.
