Thank you so much Victor, you are always such a good friend, today to be missed is a hard thing icon_rolleyes.gif

Yes we are friends for long time and I understand your words, but seems I should be absent again. I need some time away from everything, to fix something and I wish to come back here, sooner. I am a kind of bad mood, so I don't want that mood to reflect on none of you my friends.

 

Take care all of you, and enjoy with yours poetry

 

See you soon my poets.

Yes Vic we miss Summayya and everyone who is busy right now. I think the summer is the reason for most of the members, maybe summer vacation. However I wish to everybody who are not here around, to have pleasant summer and nice sunny days. And I hope they will join us as soon as possible they can

hi everyone and pawnshop.

 

aleks has been one of my best femle friends ever. i like angel the perfume for females on the wrists and neck. it is very flowery divine and heavenly in scent. don't buy a big bottle of it just in case she don;t like it. i would suggest buyin the generic brand o it in the small size. get hrt also obseession for women in the small size. my ex-wife wife at the time didnt like wearing perfumes so i got her used to vanilla, lavender, and uckolitoptic massage oils which she loved during sex. \\

Wistful Poet - ah did you forget at us? icon_smile.gif I hope not. How are you, is everything ok? I can understand your absence icon_wink.gif but come on, jump over here, share something from your nice poetry.

 

 

tilsover - long time no voice from you. I can imagine your side of the world right now - I am sure there are perfect winter idyllic panoramas. Really I wish to see you around, and to read some of your poems.

 

spauldhr - same for you, I hope you are ok, and also I wish to read something new from you icon_wink.gif.

Summayyah dear, I hope you are fine and enjoying too, and also I wish to see you more often around. I miss you and your poetry.

 

Bloodyday - Rony, is your spirit little up? It must be icon_wink.gif. Soon is your birthday, so you should make some party, and start another different way of living, without sadness.

 

Tinker - where are you. You are missed here too. I know that often you are busy, but I miss your work around and your presence. Hope you have lovely time now, in this holiday season with your cute girls, and with all your family of course icon_wink.gif.

Tony my partner, for you I know icon_smile.gif. I hope you are spending nice time but I know you are back soon, so I am not worried about you.

 

My friends, now is Christmas for most of you, so I am watching our board - like a guardian. 739683.gif

I miss you all, and I feel lonely, somehow sad - ok I'm in bad mood, but I enjoy reading your poetry, so here I am thinking about all of you what may you are doing in the moment, and reading all over the board.624544.gif

 

I hope you have pleasant moments in the New Year. I wish you all the best and I hope you're all fine.

 

Hugs to everyone.

Hi Tink. First, let me tell you that I am happy to see you here icon_smile.gif. You have been busy also, so I am glad to see you around icon_wink.gif.

 

About Summayya. I heard from her briefly, so I don't know exactly what happened. Hopefully she will find some time and she will tell us some good news.

what should i say?

 

 

 

it's a long time i am inactive in this forum though i love this forum very much. Specially some names i can't forget in my everyday life.

 

 

 

Due to sudden restructure in my present workstation, i have couple of tons of new project responsibilities, but i am just able to make my time to stare at the lovely sky. it has been a long time to drench in heavy rain and the breeze gives me the feelings that i am loosing something.

 

 

 

yah, i lost a lot.....a lot of freinds just lost for their new works and responsibilities and i am watching that i am becoming an old man. when i watched a notification of magnumopus, i just remember some old avatars and writings and then i felt that there is still something which i can't miss.

 

 

 

thanks for the invitation but still i couln't make time to write something regularly. i need to change something of my very own and actually i need some time for my own which i can't get.

 

 

 

But someday i will and still i want to say from deep of my heart that it's an great honour to write in such a platform with such great poets like you all.

 

 

 

thank you again!

Hi RoNy :)

 

 

My sympathy as I know well how work and life has a way of carving large chunks of our time, leaving little space for writing. But I hope you will keep at it.

 

Good to see you around :D

Wistful Poet

Wow it's been awhile....ok here's a quick update: I'll start my second year of college next month, I'll be majoring in nursing, my poetry was published on my campus' lit magizine, made a lot of friends in college, and I'm still writing poetry, and I'm working as a nurse's aide this summer and I still have my horse and my family recently added a dog we call Huey.

Great to see you, Wistful! It's also good to find out that you've chosen to pursue a fine, marketable skill as a profession. I have a lot of respect for nurses. My mother was a nurse until I was born, at which point she became just a mom. I hope you will continue to write, too.

 

Thanks for checking in, saying hello, and giving us an update as to your whereabouts. I'm sure you're busy, but do come here whenever you can.

hi Wistful Poet, Nia sort of had a fallout with Aleksandra. This forum has run completely without her. the old forum she was never a member of either. the first pmo board she left right before it got deleted. i talked to nia june 5 or 6 that is the last time i heard from her. she is still a member of poetry connection but she doesn't post much and really doesnt say much either to me the few times we have talked in the last 2 years. for about a year we did talk everyday just about. i don't know why nia got upset with aleksandra but she is the reason so nia says why she wants no part of this forum. nia has moved on and so has aleksandra. i know aleksandra is sad about this but can you do. we are all not happy that nia wants no part of aleksandra's friendship.

Sorry, I have been missing for a while. Beside the usual "busy for the holidays" excuse, my son (who most of you know is a police officer) was injured a week before Christmas. Family Photo

 

While in a high speed pursuit a motorist cut him off, hitting his bike and throwing him 100 feet from the point of impact. The bike is totalled. He was touch and go for a bit, he hit the ground so hard his helmet visor had to be pryed from the asphalt. We had a fright and the holidays were put on hold. Thankfully he is going to be fine. He has a concussion and is still dealing with dizziness issues, broke his wrist, tore his bicept, sprained his neck and shoulder and has abundant road rash and bruising but hopes to be back on the job in 6 to 8 weeks. He hurts but is in good spirits and is bored to tears. The kids got their Christmas with daddy at home and didn't even notice it was quieter, more low key than usual. I just got back from So California where I have been helping out with the kids while my daughter-in-law focused on him.

 

We are blessed, Happy Holidays to all...

Wow, Tink, what a scare! Those are some serious injuries. They may have put a damper on the holidays, but there's lots of brightness in the fact that he'll be okay. (You might even be able to alleviate his boredom a little by introducing him to poetry :D ... Some forms, perhaps? :blush: )

 

Thanks for checking in and for the warm holiday wishes. Happy holidays to you and yours, too, and godspeed for your son's recovery.

Hello, people. I am happy to see you all around posting, being active and creative. I was a little away and now I am trying to jump back in. I see I have a lot of job here, and that makes me happy, plenty to read and work on :). I am excited because of that, and I will try to catch most of it.

 

I missed you all and I am happy to jump back in :). And also I hope my muse comes back to me :huh: -- probably sleeps somewhere hidden from me, but I'll find it ;).

Hi, My participation might be spotty for a while. I fell off a ladder while picking plums today and crushed my wrist. The ground beneath a leg of the ladder was undermined by a gopher hole, I had been up there awhile, my basket was almost full, and all of a sudden I was sitting on the ground and my left wrist was on fire. I spent most of my Sunday afternoon in the ER. Because the bone jammed up ino the joint crushing something, I need surgery. I won't know when until tomorrow, I will keep you posted.

 

I am fine otherwise, but it is hard typing with one hand. Just a tiny peek into the difficulty Victor must experience. I have nothing but admiration for you my friend.

Thanks for the good wishes everyone. I have fallen from higher places than a plum tree, even from a horse at full gallop but have never broken anything before. It must be true what they say, when you get old your bones become brittle. I am 69, I guess I was due. (Come to think of it, my horse and I went down because my horse stepped in a gopher hole. Those darn gophers are dangerous.)

 

Yes Badger, our plums are late this year, and not as sweet as I expected. It has been an unusually cool summer so far. My tomatoes are still green too. We need the hot days to sweeten and ripen the fruit. But I have zucchini by the bushels and so does everyone else. I am running out of ways to prepare it.

Hey, wait just a minute .... Broken and crushed bones are no excuse for spotty participation! :unsure: But really, Tinker, I'm so sorry to hear this, especially the part about needing surgery. I've never broken a bone, so I can only imagine what the pain might be like. I did sprain my arm pretty badly one time. It was so painful -- I thought I broke it -- that I actually went to the ER.

 

As for zucchini, I love it grilled along with summer squash. (Though I have no love for butternut squash or pumpkin.) What to do with the excess squashes, I don't know. Perhaps you could pickle them? Alek introduced me to a Macedonian condiment called AJVAR. It's made with peppers and eggplant. I love it, and order about a dozen jars each year. I noticed among the other PRODUCTS they had pickled GRILLED ZUCCHINI. I ordered a jar of that, but ended up tossing it. Didn't really like it. :unsure: But hey, many people do, and it's another idea. :) As for the ajvar, I can't get enough of it!

 

Please take care and get well soon! As always, let us know if you need anything.

Ouch, Tinker, you are so brave climbing on a ladder! Wish you a quick recovery!

My mom uses zucchini to make dumplings, yummy.

Tony, you Ajvar makes my mouth watery though I've never tasted it yet.

 

Get well soon.

I am leaving for Southern California tomorrow and will have only sporatic access to a computer for the next week, so I probably won't be posting much between now and a week from Monday.

 

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day... My favorite holiday. I will be cooking a feast for this special day. For those of you in other countries who don't have this holiday to look forward to and to those of you who will be gathering with family and loved one next Thursday, :wine2: I toast you all and give thanks for having the privilege to read your work and learn from you.

 

~~Tink

 

PS In our family one of the children is usually given the task of saying the Grace, it will probably be 7 year old Allexa this year because she is preparing for her First Communion and has her prayers down pat. (I had to listen to a recitation of ALL of them last night on the phone.) Then we go around the table at our Thanksgiving meal and we each take turns saying out loud what we are thankful for. The kids really get into this tradition, I know it sounds corny but it really is a special moment. Lots of laughter and love. It is easy to believe when I am so blessed.
