    I just wanted to let you know I wrote a poem for your falsely accused contest. Titled, No body Knew. Interesting what a pause can bring. Let's hope he responds with a wedding ring. :)

    yes, that pause makes all the difference. Love the subject listed as death too, lol. Many happy returns, Susan - sorry I'm late - hope you had a great birthday x
