They went to see the Wizard;
They followed the White House Road -
Doreen put up her periscope;
A Greyhound Michael rode.

Then LngJhnAg and Lorelei
Came singing in the rain,
"Are there some crazy poets here?"
The duo did refrain.........
(got pics)

Lost Dreamer, Nan and Peri met
With desperado's plane.
He saw them first and said "Oh No!
They're Groucho's, Justin Sayne!!"....
(got pics)

For there they stood with glasses donned,
A moustache each with smile.
Nan hugging every James in sight,
Des shopping all the while.

To Washington, the entourage
In lines where tourists stand;
From that day forth all poets were
From capital's dome banned.........
(yep - got pics)

Though Michael had escaped the spies,
They got his fingerprints.........
(taking pics)
He needs a place to be Unknown
And play with fingerpaints.

Comes gnosis with the Scrabble board,
A laughter marathon -...........
(pics)
"All poets hence off to the 'Stute!!"
Declared the Pentagon.

Intruder brought his parents by.
A brave raccoon was he;
For then they'd likely see firsthand
Poets' insanity.

Then desperado's plane's aground -
He sabotaged the door.
So he could return Justin Kace
The poets played some more.

By then it seemed the Wizard quest
Would take them to the 'Stute.
Lost Dreamer's VanGogh's Justin Thyme;
They left in hot pursuit... .......
(um..This is a true story)

"JAMES DESPERADO! JAMES DESPERADO! Please drop that baggage and meet your party at the baggage drop! JAMES DESPERADO! JAMES DESPERADO! DO NOT.... I repeat.... DO NOT... accept any alien packages from ANYBODY, nor let any strangers hug you!"

umm.... hehehe... that guy doesn't look like james, that looks like Balladeer! OMIGOD, every guy here looks like Balladeer! YIKES! Let's take the shuttle one more time, that desperado better come to his senses and STAY PUT so we can find him...

"JAMES DESPERADO! JAMES DESPERADO! Your party is waiting for you with noses on their faces. Please meet your Groucho at the nose drop. ummm.... ehem... I mean.... Please drop your packages and come to your senses at the baggage claim!"



Unmasquerade, my eye! That guy in the picture coulda been ANYBODY! There were so many James guys at Dulles and EVERYBODY heard those announcements..... I'm not buyin' it. Marlboro man, my foot.

This guy was no Marlboro Man.... he was a desperado NUT! LOL.... never laughed so long and so hard in.... geez... in at least ....3 or 4 weeks.

hey, Nan, who took all these pictures? I thought the guy at the capital building confiscated your camera

Doreen, Doreen, Doreen... How many times do I have to tell you to try
"to keep your head about you -
when all about you are losing theirs
and blaming it on you!!"

This was sure a wonderful gathering, and weekend. I can't wait till we all can join together again hopefully then the Wizard will decide to make his presence known. Until then I think he's gonna have to deal with the Justin Clan.

I quit, not one day after that picture remember? and I was about to be famous! *groan* really it was a nasty habit. glad I quit. of course it's been a little difficult from time to time with withdrawal, but I can take it. I'm a big boy. *wicked grin* lol ok maybe not. hmmm oh and I have the dirt on that doreen picture if any one here wants it. hehe
