Michael, again my oft repeated apologies for lack of time in the forums, but i just HAAAAD to give a gentleman's congratulations on a sterling career of poetry, humor and wisdom as only a modern Balladeer could do.  

  Getting published in book form is a lifetime achievement, and one that assures that somewhere, someone will years from now, be  able to enjoy and savor your life experiences in verse.  You have my admiration and massive congrat's on etching a worthwhile scratch on our humble existence.

all my best, Michael!

I have ten dollars American and a phone card do you think that would do it?

Truthfully this is an absolutely fabulous book and Emma is champing at the bit for hers

Marsha,
this is NOT ebay, I'm sure it's not necessary to outdo me again. Why don't we both buy one or two? Seriously though folks, the book is wonderful. I like Titia curled up with Balladeer everynight, although I was greedy and read more than one poem in a night.

Very nice, 'Deer.  Very nice.

How many pages/poems long is the book?  I might scrape up a few dollars of my own.

Michael, I just had my letter to you returned due to "Attempted - Not Known"
I double-checked the address that I wrote down and it's the same as you posted here. Can you double-check what you posted here as an address, or call the Post Office and give 'em hell?! Thanks!

Sorry, Denise...

You may have gotten caught up in a post office snafu. When I opened the box they gave me a price and I paid it. After about a week I received a letter from them that their computer had the wrong pricing in it and I owed more that was due before my box was valid. Problem is they sent that notice the day I took off on a 4-day golf tournament so it was five days before I saw it. Perhaps your letter came at that time. I know that it's working because I have received letters from others so...please try again!

Balladeer,
My sincere congratulations to one who so richly deserves them. Oh, and by the way , to you also! Really though, I think it's just great. Any time one of the poets here gets their words in to print it elevates us all in a sense, as we can then say, "and I knew him/her when...". Best of luck,
Doc

This is simply wonderful! Put me down for one! Not only because I want to support a fellow PIP poet, but I'd like to take you to bed with me every night!--just like Titia! Mm--this could get interesting!!! tehe

I'll get a money order and let the bank handle the exchange rate.

Congratulations, Michael!

Well, well, Mr. Ball-Deer......
Lookey what I found here. I'm always running late, it seems like.
I hope I'm not too late to get a book. If I hear today, I'll put
a money order in the mail tomorrow. I know that it's got to be wonderful.
Now, about taking you to bed with me every night, I  KNOW  that
my  Gary wouldn't like that even one little tiny bit.
Seriously, Mr. Balladeer, I'm really looking forward to receiving mine, (edit..my  BOOK)
if I'm not already too late..........


Love makes the world go 'round (unkown)
with love and hugs from Ethel
