  1. Reading Simenon in August

    And I'm glad -and honored- you liked it! ;)
  2. Reading Simenon in August

    And thank you, too. The "main house" has a/c for mom, but I may finally get an "R2D2", one of the portable a/c with wheels. Maybe.
  3. Reading Simenon in August

    Thank you.
  4. Irma vs Florida et al

    Irrefutably, indeed. The form adds a seriousness to this serious event.
  5. First Responder

    Agree with Benjamin. Last line is a clincher.
  6. Ode to My Left Hand

    I need to get here more often. So sorry to hear about the surgery. Hope you have healed even more!
  7. Puerto Rico Puerto Rico

    "No one's fault nor punishment from God." THANK YOU! :)
  8. Hey Marti,   Are you safe?   I think I read Orange was in the flood area.   Just thinking about you.

      Internet is back. Last night of storm hit our neighborhood. Knee deep water in front & back yards. Water seeped in from underneath; the house is on piers. Carpets soaked and kitchen/dining vinyl is buckling. NO standing water.

      ALL for now? Levee issues later.....

  9. On a Starless Night

    Great narration.
  10. My Don Quixote

    Definitely like the reuse of the short lines as the last line. Great choice of subject.
  11. New world

    I think alliteration gives this a more serious tone than rhyme could have. Sobering.
  12. I Miss You

    Very sneaky, indeed!
  13. Witness

    "If you have to ask..." Love it. :)
  14. I Have a Hero

    Vivid, indeed. In the re-telling it's almost scary but draws out empathy (pity?) and I mean that in the good sense.
  15. Snow Drifts

    I can see the cottage and the mountain. The cold smell is almost perceptible.
