I love the qualifier at the end almost as much as the poem itself Gershon.

Thanks for letting me know, Caren. I was hoping someone would be amused by that qualifier. :) gw

WoW! Gershon! The words you can come up with! I thought I liked to play with words but I think I have met my match in you. You came up with a $10.00 word for sure. I get accused of using big words by people at work all the time but you have me beat easily. Loved it. But wouldn't have that job because of all the stuffed shirts and evil doers you have to put up with. Good Job! God Bless and thanks for your prayers. I'll say one for you. JB

Maybe this'll surprise you, but I had just applied to be a greeter at Wall-Mart part-time when my body began to attack me like its favorite enemy. At this point, I'm a semi-invalid, so jobs are out of the question. But I have more trouble with the stuffed shirts than I do with the 'evildoers.' Here's to your recovery, Judy! Healing Thoughts, gw

(chuckle) I love it! It brought such a bursting chuckle, and I don't know why! I think maybe, at first, I read penitentary.

Plenty of penitentiaries around to share the chuckle, I'm sure. Thanks, Milt.
