OH, I do miss those days, Robert. And also in grade school, we had such cuter ones that we gave out to each of our classmates. Did you do that?

Pluck a dandelion from the backyard, give her a big hug and tell her how much you love her and that's all she really needs. You slime? Never! Very funny poem, Bob. Best wishes in Francine's contest. Love, Carolyn
