    Ruben, this gem is a perfect example of why "footle" should be validated....a complex rhyme in 4-words! MAGNIFICENT! my friend! I know people travelling south to help with the cleanup...being an avid birdwatcher, I'm tormented by the agony my feathery friends are suffering....this goes to mine favs!!! as you would say!!! and thanks for your warm feedback! gemini jim

    Excellent, timely footle, Ruben. And, yes, you may complain directly to me via email or soup mail if you lose one of my contests. Just don't go public with your complaints. LOL I know you were just kidding, but this is my new rule. Public whiners are disqualified! Love you, Carolyn
