Well...did it go through the goal posts, Gerard? You know I love football and hate to see the season come to an end. This limerick had special appeal for me. Hope you'll put some of your humor to work in the "Taxing Times" contest. I've been dealing with some issues and had to be away from the Soup for a while. Hope you and Susan are doing well. Love, Carolyn
