    Ruben, thank you for the kind words and Fav! I already have you down as a Fav from awhile back now, after I saw how well you wrote minimalism! And as for your comment about mastering the form....I don't think I will have mastered it, even after an entire lifetime dedicated to it!~Chris

    Ruben, old friend. I see you haven't lost your touch, bro. Since when do they play soccer with two balls? Good luck in the contest.

    Oh my God! Randy or blue? Good one! A keeper. Cutting wit that makes you laugh half amazed and half satisfied. Regards, Gerard.

    *Cont'd* For now, I am going to keep certain things hidden. If anything replays itself in my next contest, I will reveal names and include pastes of any new soupmail Ha ha!

    Ruben, I completely missed your comment on the blog....I didn't even see it, as well as a bunch of them right around yours! I was so distracted by Diane's comment about "saying sorry" Geez! She apologized for causing trouble? That isn't what I wanted! She didn't do ANYTHING wrong....that was the point! Wow! Ruben, I did show names and info of the offenders, but I removed 2 paragraphs before posting the blog. I know TPS frowns on actually using names to point fingers at? I was so tempted!

    Didn't know that Andrea has such a good command of Spanish!! Enjoyed the write here, Ruben! Thank you for your hint! Claro que es "el estanque" y "la laguna" . I corrected it already as I first wanted to write laguna and then changed into estanque. So I didn't notice that mistake! Gracias por todos tus comentarios y que estes de nuevo en Soup! Ciao, Gert

    Congrats Ruben on your super win in the Senryu contest.. an awesome victory my friend.. enjoy with luv...

    Ruben, congratulations on your win in my contest! It was so cool to see your name pop up on my winner's list! I was happy and honoured to see that you entered my contest, especially since I haven't seen a lot of new work from you( if any). You did great pulling off a very modern senryu here! I had so much difficulty with the placements....basically anyone who made it into the final round was 1st place in my books; simply for bearing with my role-play of the "Senryu-Fascist!"~Chris
