    Joe Joe good meaning but to short, how are you Joe I've had health issues and right now I'm in between moving, just found a new house in Barstow Happy with it as soon as I get some money to move my furniture into it I will be back on line, right now I'm close to bankruptcy and have to be very caareful, I have the house but no furniture for at least two weels that's when I'll be able to get back on line. God loves you and all of us it just takes time. God bless.

    Dear Joe, thanks for your comments on my patriotic haiku. I do have problems with the way our country is being led, but I'm still proud and happy to be an American. Nothing beats freedom. Love, Carolyn

    Hum. Makes me thing of God and walking the walk of righteousness instead of baulking and having to caulk life later...GREAT! You made me think! (And thank you for being a community builder and for unselfishly sharing your time to read and encourage poetry on this site. My life took a swift new direction about 8 months ago, and I have not been able to reciprocate. My thanks go to every community builder who enjoys poetry and encourages other poets, like I once tried to do. I love you…all! Lovingly, Dane Ann)
