Thanks, Guy
I am in your debt for being such a faithful reader even during the extended periods when I did little reading and hardly any commenting.  I'm happy some of my posts helped you find a comfortable home for your blog.  I was sad to hear of the passing of your father.  I remember how numb and empty I felt when my father died in 1998 while I was going through a period of unwanted change and difficulty.  But in a way he is still with me.  I treasure the happy moments we had together and the example he set for me when it came to overcoming adverrsity.

Hi, TAPS.
I don't remember the poetry contests, but it sounds like it must have been fun for those with a fondness and talent for verse.  I do, however, remember when poetry really began to boom.  I've had a little fun joining in and making fun of my own lack of aptitude for poetry.

regarding categories

Notapoet,

   I am in your debt for one of your previous listings steering me towards the category of "Everything Else." I had started in "Pets," then posted in "Humor," and was trying to find the right catgory for me. Since I too had computer problems and the recent death of my father, (A real body blow for me) my number of loyal readers has plunged, but I haven't been commenting on the work of others much lately so this is understandable. Any time that I stumble accross one of your blogs, I never fail to read it.

       Guy

I can remember the days when someone had to run poetry contests to get anyone to write poetry.  That was fun.  But when the poetry boom came, it stayed.
