Thanks Laura, I don't know how we made it this far, but things seem to be going along just fine.

Hi Duke, Belated congratulations, 50 is just around the corner! I sent a few comments on Black Sunday as Tom puts it, and i noticed that you sent some to me. Poetrysoup have apologised but imagine the poets who lost poems and competition entries lost! Technology still needs refinement - still subject to human error.. Kind regards, Jennifer

Yeah, I see there is some information missing. Not inspiring confidence to have these things happen. Just when you think these poems will be around forever--kaboom!! Nothing we do can ever last that long.

How wonderful for all of us! We are among the minority who are able to compromise and put of with the crazy habits of our spouses! We just have to laugh!!

Yes, perhaps we all deserve an award. The best ones are the memories and outlook we have.

So you've been married 40 years.Good for you. I told my older sister at age 12 I'm never getting married. I kept that promise to myself. So how have you been :)

When I say my X, it means I was with him for 17 years. He wanted to get married. I didn't :)

I have been well. I thought you were married for sometime. But whatever it was, if you were not, then it was a terrible loss for a potential spouse.
