    Andrea (specifically) and all others thanks for the kind comments. I have to say this is a recap of a reunion years ago when my mother was still alive. The ONLY thing made up was the names Uma, Oma and Andrea. My mother (age 90) offered her opinion of the conversations by saying " It's just a bunch of old biddys dishing dirt, son!" Sometimes you just can't make these things up. All the best . JT

    Different and unique John.. good luck in Tirzah's contest .. its original... to answer your question.. about where I file my tax returns.. most all is in my computer... paperless is the way to go these days so I try to do my best .. if I had to file paperwork like my poetry is done.. it would be challenging to say the least but I would find a way.. thankxxx John..have a wonderful poetic day..luv..
