Martie... WOW! Right back at cha. And Thanks!
Marilyn... I am indeed a helpless romantic, but do not worry... my warped sense of humor is still hangin' around. Thanks as well.
Lady D... A to you and yours.
Meadowmuse... you are most generous and I thank you for your kindness of words.
RobertB... Thank you my good man. I say the same for you and yours.
Sir Balladeer... Nice to have surprised one such as you. Interesting you should feel this to be a departure from my previous works for I felt somewhat the same as this piece was written from a purly fictional point of view... A distant lover who has left his heart behind and hopes to soon find his way back.
Lady Fatale... you make me blush m'lady. Thank you for you kindness.
Kevin... to be placed in one's scrap book is an honor. Many thanks.
Again, thanks to one and all for stopping by and leaving your marks.
