    Ah, Cap'n Deb, you bewilder me. Good morning, I've been reading your archives again and realized how few comments I've made about your words. Well, you have a heckofa range!. Then I wondered where you went, but I found your fb page, so I "followed." Will keep up with you there as well. Like your thoughts (makes my head hurt sometimes:-) Hope you're well & swell, John.

    This is very true. I think you are one of the poets who does both very well. I was at work when I received your comment on the Doritos piece. It is a real pleasure to hear from you and a welcome message. That piece was created because my daughter's friend wanted something written about her favorite chip. They are tasty! I have to restrain myself when I am shopping.
