how many chances do we get to actually see the people we've been knowing in cyberspace for years?

It's an expense I am working overtime for

Unfortunately, I didn't make parole this year.

(The only guilty person in Shawshank, yanno.)

I still know how to "get things" tho.

But there's this black rock in my garden, and...

sigh.



Thanks for the offer though of the ride, tho, Dixie.

Alright Karen, so you need a Bo Derek poster and a small little chisel...

Now the couple football fields length of raw sewage is yours to deal with...

I will feel that I知 a voyeur
if this gathering comes to pass.
I never said I was a poet
I知 just a wantabe ...
but oh how much I love to read
and ponder other痴 thoughts.

I am looking forward,
to meeting you this Fall.
so come this October I hope
that there will be
a wave of Pip痴 favorites
sitting by the sea.

we値l drink and dance and have some
fun and then you値l sit and talk.
I will sit and listen and
most times be in awe.
but don稚 think I知
not hearing and
taking in it all.
Oh say you値l come
Oh say you値l come,
so we can have a ball.

martyjo, see you there?

as I told a friend via e mail, I never say "never" and once upon a time I was very good at disappearing.

I figger it's sorta like riding a bicycle, or a Greyhound bus, even.

(These people I live with better start some proper worship! )

I haven't given up but wonder if enough are reading or interested. I am so close that I can run over at the last minute. Check how close Palm Coast is to St.Augustine and Google Palm Coast. Things are popping here. But St.Augustine is so quaint and such a nice place to visit. We could  meet and have lunch and go browsing and meet again for dinner. An overnight is easy as there are many motels and hotels in every price range.

I had just been a little too optimistic I guess as I know there are more poets right in the two or three hour drive area. Georgia is not too far if there are Pipsters there. I would love to meet Balladeer and his wife and Sy and his wife. I hear so much about these great people.

I am bringing Jackie with me. In Fact she and I and her little boy are leaving tomorrow for Ct. Chase just turned seven and will be the ring bearer.  He has only been in Ct. in November so remembers it as having snow, and his visits to the turkey farm  where Jackie had worked every year since she was in highschool. His last airplane ride was when he was six months old as she  usually drove up. So this will be new to him also. She had to skip it last November because of the accident.

And Dixie of course I am most anxious to meet you. Have been reading you since 1998 or 1999. I read a whole year before  dropping in to the other site. Anyway. If it happens I will be there. won't be a "latearrival".

Neglected to say we are going up to attend my grandson's wedding. He is the one I once mentioned  Dixie, who is an EMT. He works at a clinic nights, drives ambulance days when needed, Coaches the high school girls soft ball team, is a registered umpire and keeps busy at that. He details cars and plows in the winter, helps a landscaper in summer. How he does it all is beyond me but he bought his own home last year at age 25. Has a sweet little red pick up  for every day and a larger pick up for plowing, both he bought himself and has finished paying for. I have thirteen grandchildren and three great grands, ages from 34 to 4 quite a spread. I married at not quite 17. My own kids are from 36 to 54 so that tells you the
story. LOL "late"

I know there are other Floridians that could spend a day in St. Augustine with us..

What do I have to do to get more interested?



(Karen you can come early and spend a couple days with me, Leah and the baby!!)

The poet meet was held in Florida the last time. I would come closer to being able to get to Kansas, than I can to Florida. But then, there would be a problem of money. Right now, I am not able to save any money, right now. But, I do wish I could meet you all.
