Quote John Lawless, “Thank you Mick, high praise from the "master"....much appreciated.” unquote. You're too kind John, you honour me big time! I am definitely no Basho, but I try. Humbled, I thank you most graciously, Mick

Hey, Maureen, I was watching a massive movement of fireflies over the holiday....hot nights, dark skies and an electric side show....
