Juliet, your contest was of the type I enjoy. I love acrostics and limericks more than any form and the acrostic on Linda-Marie was an easy accomplishment for me because of her love for others. Thank you for seeing that in my entry and for the placement you gave it.

Thanks, Gershon! I enjoy my attempts to make a decent, meaningful acrostic every time I write one. That form must make sense and not just have a word or phrase that begins with the next letter, etc. Linda was a superb friend and supporter to every one on Soup and that is a hard role to live up to --- but she did it!

Hi, Jan! Things have been busy around my household with family members living in Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina and South Carolina and trying to visit them all and spend Christmas time with them has had me off the grid for a while. It's good to hear from you. I hope things are somewhat settled for you and the Christmas and New Year holidays are good ones. Love and Hugs across the miles.
