That was meant to be a joke. Sorry.

Seems to always be a matter of crossed wires, loose screws or no batteries included:) SORRY--again! Geez...what is WRONG with me today. And I can feel another one coming...yikes. OK I'll stop.

I LIKE THIS ONE A LOT:)It's a good STORY!

And really, from one who's been on her knees for the last year, it's an OK place to be, metaphorically of course. T'is all as it is meant to be, isn't it? I am now drawn to go back and read your Train poem.

Nope, but look at you sling those multisyllabics and punctuation marks!
