I'm just sitting here waiting for the ladle To pass along to me, those tasty things I'm anxious for what's lying in its cradle Letters forming words that often sing But I'm looking in my bowl and it's half empty The pot looks like it's barren to the bone There's no meat or veggies there, and I'm painfully aware I'm sitting at the table all alone Were is everybody ?

I agree with you - its a sad soup these days Jerry - its pretty lack lustre with no spice and to be honest its quite rancid at times - few comments and some I have seen are far from complimentary :-( Hugs Jan xx

Thanks for coming by Jan, but as you can see, there was only enough soup for one, and the kid got it, lol
