I would like to thank the sponsors of contests I was fortunate to place in and to all the kind comments on my efforts. I have been away from the Soup because life suddenly got in the way for a while as in:

 Both of my cars died on me. (2)

 A friend and a very close relative passed away. (2)

 We went through two "fine needle aspirations" for Cancer. (2)             One on my oldest son the other on my Golden Retriever.

The whole experience reminded me of priority's in life. Cars are a neccesary evil, you always remember the deceased in a special way but the health and well being of your children (and pets) can be mind numbing. The Path reports (2) were benign, thank God!

I hope to get back in the mix with some more narratives derived from the titles of poets work here on the Soup.

All the best    JT

    WEll, in my case and my hubbies, we always say, when it rains, it pours, not just in twos, but threes and fours. I'm very glad for you that the cancer reports were benign. That is one huge burden off you! Good luck with the cars. Car problems really suck! Luv, Andrea

    Wow when things go bad, they go really bad! I'm so glad to hear that you are taking it with a grain of sand! And I'm so happy to hear that the cancer tests were benign-that's some nasty stuff, my dad had cancer a couple of years ago, but he's still holding strong!~Tirzah~

    So glad to hear that your son and beloved dog are going to be fine...what a huge relief that must be! and yes...waiting for things like that are so numbing and frightening when someone you love may be ill. So sorry to hear of your friend also. It does put everything else into perspective. All the best to you too. Love, Carrie
