About harry horsman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHi it is time i introduced myself, I was born in Skipton Yorkshire, England, and still have a accent belonging to my birth place. in 1966 my wife Elaine and i and our two sons moved to New Zealand, where the boys were raised. then we  moved on to the city of Perth  in Western Australia.
After 45 years away we both decided to have a move back to the yorkshire dales where we were raised. leaving our children and grandchildren in what i consider the best places on the planet. (NZ-OZ)
Our reason for the move back to the uk was to be able to discover our back yard so to speak, and we have a desire to go to europe, especially scandinavia and germany.
 I would like to say how much i'm enjoying my trip here on soup, and really loved the poems posted, my bigest problem being time, i always seem to be catching up, being able only to spend two to three days on here, even then with limited hours, so please forgive me if my comments seem later than most.  I also love football (soccer) Newcastle United in England being my team, then music, all kinds but mainly Rock 'n' Roll, i'm  a avid record collector, especially old vinyl LP's of the Fifties. my favourite poet is W. H Davies, along with a few on soup here, I do not get a lot of time to read these days, but my favourite Author is Dennis Wheatley, also i love  the the Bronte Sisters, being raised only 10 miles from Haworth, one gets a real feel for their literature, when one visits the area.   Harry

Hi everyone,, just lately i've been forunate to be able to spend a lot of time here, and in doing so, have read many wonderful poems,, and made new friends, but alas time is now at a premium. with another project i really want to get into, and also personal reasons...
i will  hopefully still be able to check in once a day,, but my comments on yours poems will be very limited.. this blog being written mainly to advise you all that i'm not ignoring anyone, and will at least still try and read your poem, and even endeavour to comment but as i said eariler, only very limited....I also would like to take this opportunity, to thank you all for the comments on my poems,, which i hold dear to my heart!

    I'm in the same boat Hrry but never thought to say so here; that's a good idea so people don't think you got killed or something. I've sure enjoyed your generous comments at my site, they are such "feel good words" that brighten my day and make me feel appreciated. I'll be around too, just not as much as life does get complicated at times. Take care, stay well and enjoy all you do. Love, Elizabeth

    Harry, I am not sure wot is going on aside from the project you mention in this blog. Hopefully you will still spend some time on the Soup. I understand though, I have been spending less time on the Soup. Thank you kindly for your constant encouragement over the last(nearly)3 years. Don't be a stranger. And remember, once a Babylon Kid, always a Babylon Kid, no matter how much you might want to change this....once you are in, you are always in lol.

    Good luck with whatever is happening, Harry. We all have a life outside the Soup that needs our attention. Sometimes it has to be our priority......and everyone knows that. So best wishes, and we hope you can check in as time allows. Best wishes! :)
