Hi Syd,

that is fantastic!!! It must have taken you ages to write, finding all the little titbits and tieing them together. Talk about talent!!!

Thank you for making us all smile, I think I will print it out and save it....

Merry Christmas

Syd, I am in awe of your talent. How did you do it? Erase that ... a silly question. Talent cannot be explained. You either have it or you don't. You definitely have it. Gameboomers is very lucky to have such a gifted member.

Happy Holidays to you, and all. smile

There was someone at another board I used to post at that used to do things like this. She would write grand adventures and huge epic thrillers and even the occasional poem. She would put in as many names of other posters as she could fit in.

In every single one I walked into a room and got shot. Even in her christmas poems. It was a running joke that made me somewhat uncomfortable. It was so nice to see my name in this poem without reading about my subsequent demise. Thank you for not killing me, Syd. It is a very nice poem.


Sanity is still just an excuse for not having fun.

Great poem syd! happydance happydance I first became a member here right before Christmas last year (don't remember when exactly) but I must have just missed the opportunity to be in your annual Christmas poem. But now seeing my name there, I feel so special, like I'm officially a part of this family now. laugh And I think we all appreciate all the work you put into making this spectacular poem. Luv all you guys!
