Typo Jan first you make every body change their calender to attend 2015 and then you type 2016. Maybe if you were not sitting in Alejandro's lap you might not make so many typo's.

Paul - between you and me I think Maurice has had too much sun or too much something tonight lol - it's 2016 when I intend to visit again but of course you can meet the others for the trip Maurice is organising lol:-) HugsJjan xx

Ok I give up Jan if you are dead set on it then 2015 it is. I guess I see your point you really are not getting any younger. You know what you said about thinking you had a trick knee and finding out it was your left breast. Oops! Was I suppose to keep that to myself. Never mind then.

In fact Dan, Jan was too shy to add that she is organizing a poetrysoup get together in Malta in 2015. Others suggested 2016 but Jan insists 2015 or Bust. In fact those were her exact words I think.

Malta does sound beautiful and exciting that's why Jan is organizing a poetrysoup meeting in 2015. A bit quick I thought but Jan insists we simply must all see it. I wonder if it has anything to do with Alejandro the pool boy.

425,001 if you count Alejandro the pool boy. Maybe that is why Jan is organising a poetrysoup meeting in 2015.

It's absolutely stunning here Sara - it is about the same size as the Island I live on but our population is only 85,000 and I believe on Malta it is around 425,000! Hugs jan xxx
