There isn't much to say, LOL.  
I'm 45, single (again) and live in Plymouth, England.
I've had all sorts of jobs, from admin to boat-building to gardening, but, at the moment, I work for the local theatre - cleaning windows and sweeping up. At least the people are all nice and we get plenty of free or cheap tickets : ) 
My favourite poets are Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Robert Frost. I especially love Shakespeare's Sonnet 29.
I love writing and don't think I could live without it.

I'm the bald guy at the very back of the photo, by the way - 'Jack Horner' in the corner, LOL


Just saying a big thank you to Susan Burch

Have a great weekend, everyone : )

    susan is such a big sweetie. I hope others miss her contests as much as I do. I don't think she felt very welcome here, and it's a shame. People need to show appreciation to people like susan. I am very happy she gave you the rest of her PM. come up with a humorous contest or a sonnet one. haha. Or whatever you want.
