    Eileen is a queen of hearts and you're such a caring king to be able to recognize the true beauty of She which goes beyond words.

    We have Betty Boop on the back of jeeps and at air fields. Didn't know she was alive in Beirut! Since you dedicated a poem to her... I brought up all those Betty Boop cartoons. I read them in the comics as a kid. Dragon is enjoying the cartoons as I'm writting. He thinks she's cooler than even Godzilla. A BIG compliment from Dragon! He was talking about visiting her in Beirut... But not to worry... I showed him a map and explained his little wings aren't ready for that trip yet... LOL
