Just a little thank you,
To all you poets dear,
I've never been disappointed,
From what I've encountered here.

I've been praised and never ridiculed,
Nor has anyone offended me,
Yall have been no less than "cool"
With the replies that you've sent me.

The talent that is offered here,
Is beyond my comprehension,
I know I can't come anywhere near,
The expertise you all have written.

Balladeer's intelligence,
Is something else to see,
Nan is nothing less than elegance,
My God, what expertise!

LongJohn told me 'bout this place,
His opinion means much to me,
I know that if he liked it here,
It was the place to be.

I'm not meaning to leave anyone out,
I've not read anything not great,
You all have got a talent,
No one is second rate.

I teach class at college,
I meet folks from every where
I've travelled this world over,
And I have this to share;

You can surf the internet,
Go to sites beyond belief,
But nowhere will you find,
People such as these.

So just a little thank you,
From one insanely mad,
For all the kindness that you've shared,
Signed insanely by Toerag.

Toerag: Don't neglect to mention your own contributions to this place... poetry, humor, integrity, insanity *G*... they are appreciated! (I know... you dismiss my praise, but I'm not alone! LOL) Well done!

And I guess if everyone else is great, 'Deer is superb? Hehehehehehehe....

I gotta tell ya, Toerag,
We're lucky to have you:
The stuff you've posted here is great
And rather funny, too ...

And even if I didn't think
Your poetry was fine,
We gotta have SOMEONE to keep
That Balladeer in line!

Toe, you are a hoot ...

Darling: I love your funny side but I appreciate your serious side that little bit more, cause I know how totally genuine it is....

Thanks for the sharing of laughter, you've made many a soul's day brighter for your presence...

You are truly an aptly named TOERAG!!!

It was a magical day when you joined our group! I remember it well..that first slap of the hand...that first stinging reprimand. It seems like just yesterday! (searching for my hankie)...yes.. I remember it well!

We are a living, breathing entity. We have brains, we have heart, we have soul and you've provided the funny bone!

See, Toe??? You might not recognize how much you contribute... but others do... and appreciate you! (with the exception of that heartless palmetto bug in Florida that has to laugh at his own jokes knowing no one else will! LOL)

Ok Toe, perhaps your head is not full of empty spaces! You do have some good words besides the nutty stuff!
