I've often said if wishes were fishes we wouldn't eat tuna! Absolutely delightful dear friend! A real "lyric" gem! Congratulations! But if the truth be told I really prefer chicken salad over chicken of the sea - sigh!

I had images of the fish community organizing a rally to warn their members about the dangers at fisherman's pier. Great work, Andrea. Congratulations on your win! Love, Carolyn
