    You do it every time! Paint indelible images with so few perfectly selected words... 'chipped' picking up 'bitten,' wonderful! Well done Kathy!! Much love, Keith (PS I have missed your poetry... :) I promise to visit you more frequently.)

    It reminds me of little boy manicure... without the enamel... but then the quick could get kinda pinkish red... In any case, I think it's funny (unless I've missed the chewed off point)... Terry (I'm happy to see you've started up again, dear Kathy)
