    congratulations for your win, Richard. Now I am curious what the other one was !!! hmmm, I am looking below at my remark to you and it seems I had told you she would prefer the other one. But it's great that you are still on the winners list and this one is very worthy.

    I think Broken wings might like that first one better simply because it seems more her style. Now I want to read all four of yours and see MY favorite.

    I can see that, I think that is an endearing quality. Which of the three do you like best?

    I was very familiar with that emotion as a young one. Very nice Richard.
