Your Avatar PIC REALLY CAUGHT MY EYE CAROL! WOW! MY father is a photographer and when my son was young he took a pic that looks almost identical to that pic you have! Anyways the picture ended up winning a bunch of awards and some money and prizes! This is too funny! Btw, I dig the poem too!

Nicely said Carol. Reminds me of an old song. "TURN AROUND, TURN AROUND, TURN AROUND AND YOUR TWO, TURN AROUND AND YOUR FOUR, TURN AROUND AND YOUR A YOUNG GIRL GOING OUT OF THE DOOR." Great write. God Bless, JB
