Jan, I always liked Rod's version of Van Morrison's song. And now this prefect poem recalled when the tune is heard. -Richard

Jan, this had me rolling! You came up with so many homonyms that I loved, but my favorite was "theo sorearse". What a pain in the butt! Your sense of fun has me sending this to my faves - congrats on your win (I guess John loved it after all!) hugs ~ a different John

Brilliant, I could read your poem and it made perfect sense so I'm not sure the spellings even mattered. Congratulations on your winning placement.

Thanks Paul I new ewe wood appreciate this lol:-) all good here, we still retain our covid free status but cases are here from people who have returned from the UK/abroad and sadly we recently had our first death since May. So far it is not in the community.. but its only a matter of time before this happens as some idiots are failing to follow the 14 day rule and self isolate:-( hugs jan xx
