I say it's fantastic, and unless GOD says - words can be written in in only one style, which I know He NEVER Said, any of style is good...and Doug do I ever love your style...I couldn't care less what's permissible, acceptable or pronouncable, I love your stuff

I agree with Lorraine.
Hey Magyar, don't get caught composing while driving!

Thanks friends Sandy and Lorraine and John; Sandy, a new bumper sticker:
"Don't Tail Gate Me, I'm Texting!"

Hahahaha! I love this. We had a rufus who thought the feeder to be his private domaine! If I failed to fill it on time, he would come at me when I went outside!!
