Listening to every heart
With baited breath, I watch a bit
For Number 1300 quick to hit;
I had anticipated 1300 by 9/30/99,
But alas, no one new came by to rhyme.
For I’ve been watching since September 1
To see how many would learn and come
To see what Passions is all about
‘tis much more fun than fishing trout!
So to Ron and all friends here
Still I think we’ve much to cheer,
For almost 300 this month swelled our forces strong
And I, for one, am glad to belong!
