Congratulations, Mark.  Well deserved.

It was a close contest there.

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Thank you, Gyppo. It was close and deservedly so - when i read through those poems, I'm amazed at the talent on display, especially considering these were 24 hour poems, every 24 hours. Think I'm actually going to print them out and have them made into a booklet anthology, crediting the authors but if anyone has any copyright objections, speak now and forever withhold your piece.

I apologize for suddenly dropping out but I had to tend to preparations for our youngest son's high school graduation, then things snowballed into a frenzy. Hard to believe when I became one of the family here, that son was in second grade. It's scary that years fly by so quickly.


I wanted to stop by this thread with a message for all of the contributors and our fearless instigator.

Thank you for sharing your creativity and for encouraging mine. I feel it a privilege to have peeked into the windows of your creative palaces.

This truly was an inspirational and fun journey. Thank you for allowing me to tag along.  :-* :)
