cheers Dave - also liked your Old Courts offering - although never seen a single second of 'Breaking Bad' so may have missed some of the undoubted humour - rattled along nicely though - and it would have been a crime not to do 'drinking to excess' ;-)

thanks for the comment on 'last orders' Dave - hopefully we can lay those ghosts to rest at the old courts - hope to see you there in a couple of weeks time for the Xmas soiree (?)

Dave - you mentioned t'other night you were on facebook - but there's bloody hundreds of you - can you friend me instead? there's less of me :-)

thanks for the comment on 'snipers' Dave - glad you liked it - sorry for slow response, been really hectic since I got back from holidays - but starting to clear some circulation space at last - so in catch up mode - thought I might see you at the Tudor last week - it was quiet. Diggers was OK - not my best, but hey ho :-)

thanks for the comment on 'Walkin' Man' Dave and apologies for the tardiness of my reply - I've not been spending enough time on WOL recently and I've got behind with both my thank-you's and my readings of other folks work - something I intend to remedy as we head in to March :-) will be back in touch I'm sure once I catch up on my reading.
I also liked your reading at the last Tudor - as always - there's some quality stuff being read there at the moment

I like the idea of warming up cheese in the back of the telly.
Thanks for your thoughts, Dave.

Glad you appreciated my sad poem. It's strange how the most heartfelt can take the least time to get down in print. A similar occasion was when I was down in South Devon one gloomy November afternoon walking beside the River Dart - and found myself watching and listening to a solitary robin in a threadbare tree. By the time I was home (in my holiday caravan) I had the poem written in my head - see "The Galmpton Robin". Like you, I love comic verse and having read your POEM above, I can tell Mike was a damn Yankee who any girl with sense would like to tell to Foxtrot Oscar without needing an X-ray, with a cry of "Who's a Papa?" that would Echo for miles.

Hi Dave, Thx for the comments on Lumb Bank. Such a beautiful place on that particular day. Win
Thu 8th Nov 2012 13:03
Hey thanks :) Glad you enjoyed it. Was an absolutely cracking day - shame you couldn't be there. Next year!
Thu 8th Nov 2012 12:58
Sorry to hear you won't be with us tonight Dave - we'll miss you! I'm also hoping your surgery isn't owt serious. If your man flu's anything to go by, it's probably an in growing toe nail and we don't need to worry too much about next month ;) x - and another for your toe x

Glad you liked "Dedicated Follower of Thrashin", Dave. You really should busy yourself more if you've the time and inclination to look at my back catalogue!
"DFoF" is one of a number of disrespectful parodies I have been doing of late.

Hi Dave Thanks for your comment on Us Nolimpics.
I've only just discovered your work as I only joined WOL in March this year but I am becoming seriously addicted!! I love comic rhyming verse having been weaned on Mariott Edgar/Stanley Holloway, cut my teeth on Flanders and Swan and confirmed into the cult of Les Barker and so to plunge into the warm pool of your verses, rhymes and wordplay is a sheer delight. Keep on blogging ! XX Yvonne

Hello fellow Neutral Milk Hotel fan!! Wow, that's a rarity. I meet so few people who are into them! I mentioned them to Winston on here and he got the album and got RIGHT into it :D I never had a favourite album in a lifetime's worth of music obsession...so that shows you how pretty bloody special it is!
Jeff Mangum's around and about these days you know, he was supposed to be curating an ATP but as far as I can tell it's all gone tits up. Ticket price was ridiculous though.
If I hear of him playing any gigs, I'll give you a shout :)
Wed 23rd Nov 2011 10:59
Thanks for your comments, Dave. That crows line gave me so much trouble - and I still don't like it!
Mon 21st Nov 2011 23:45
Thanks for your comments on "Everybody's Gone Serfin'". Glad you enjoyed it.
Mon 21st Nov 2011 17:03
Just watch out for those little green men! :)
Fri 18th Nov 2011 21:47
Thx for reading/commenting on my last poem Dave- appreciated.
Hope to see ya at the next Wigan.
Fri 18th Nov 2011 08:10
Just read your profile poems which somehow I'd managed to miss and throughly enjoyed both of them. Vintage Carr.
Fri 18th Nov 2011 08:04
Thx for the feedback on my last/that war poem Dave. Hope to see and hear you soon at Wigan.
Love your laconic/super kool style- Chris

Dave, thanks for your positive comment on my poem September!
Thu 13th Oct 2011 08:37
Thanks for commenting on The Carpet-Fitter's Tale, Dave. Yes, it could be one of an occasional series. Maybe if I overhear any interesting phone conversations on the train ... Greg
Wed 12th Oct 2011 11:29
Thanks for commenting on "widening the Circle of Friends".
Looking at your picture I'm confident that both of us have "fizzogs"!
Sat 3rd Sep 2011 14:47
Everyone at my writing group liked your poem very much - and were intrigued to find out what a villanelle was! Most of the group stick to writing prose you see. Thanks a lot for letting me read it to them.
Wed 17th Aug 2011 12:17
Eh, don't be jumping on me bandwagon now Dave ;p
Thanks for the comment chuck, appreciate it.
Tue 16th Aug 2011 22:37
Thank you for the kind comments Dave. Always appreciated. Graham
Wed 27th Jul 2011 23:00
Thanks for your comments on For My Brother, Dave. And good luck for the new season!
Tue 28th Jun 2011 20:13
Thanks for commenting on Rattus. Yes, you're right - I got the first verse (written) wrong.
Thu 23rd Jun 2011 17:10
It is indeed a pastiche. Thanks for the comment Dave. Flat satin sandals, moi? Never! xx
Wed 22nd Jun 2011 18:11
Thank you for your kind comment on Daddys girl, much appreciated.

Thanks for your comment on Escape, Dave. Sorry it's taken me so long to come back to you - life's been all over the shop just lately.
Fri 20th May 2011 07:21
Wigan or Blackpool, Dave?
Wed 30th Mar 2011 00:43
Glad you like Ken Dodd....
Wed 16th Mar 2011 10:06

Hello Dave, Thanks for your comment on 'Reasonable Behaviour'-I am now enjoying discovering your work. Ledger.
Sun 6th Mar 2011 22:14
Hi Dave, thank your for your kind comments on my latest. xx
Thu 17th Feb 2011 16:54
Hi - thanks for the comments (someday)- Dave - longing is what it is - I hadn't realised though how I had got that across, but pleased I did. B
Wed 26th Jan 2011 22:09
Thanks Dave, for reading and commenting on 'Almost' ... very much appreciated.
Wed 26th Jan 2011 18:51
Thanks, Dave, for your thoughts on Night Mail. Yes the Auden original is a cracker, isn't it?
I note your suggestion that I should be in a museum. The kids think my clothes should already be there, so it would something of a reunion for them.
Wed 26th Jan 2011 10:55
Dave - big apologies. You always seem to comment on my poems ages after everyone else, and for some reason, I keep forgetting to get back to you and say thanks!!
so, err...THANKS :D
Tue 25th Jan 2011 23:56
Cheers Dave, for your comments on East Budleigh. I guess you must have stumbled upon it while scanning through the childhood poems. In all honesty I don't think there was any justification in keeping that particular line open, but there were plenty of better-used ones that never should have closed.
Fri 10th Dec 2010 13:52
'Scuse my manners - thanks for your comment on my space pome.
Cislunar. Remember what it is now? ;)
Thu 2nd Dec 2010 14:53
Thanks for your lovely comment Dave.
We went into IKEA in Ashton under Lyne and it was exactly the same as your poem. Horrors, and also we only just got to the exit in time to purchase the ruddy bookcase we went in for. Nearly had to run for it. Not too far from Blackburn to Sowerby Bridge you know. Fancy coming to the Puzzle Hall some time? Not, perhaps, in the snow.
Wed 1st Dec 2010 23:57
hi dave - thanks for commenting on 'the other side'... hadn't thought about the doors song actually, so i read up on it, and i can see what you mean but it certainly wasn't planned... it has given me a possible idea however.
thanks again for your comment... means a lot to me that
Wed 1st Dec 2010 21:45
Hi Dave - it looks like you are on a space binge at the moment :)
Thought I'd better point out that it is Senryu - not Kuryu - or whatever it was that I made up. I was just being silly by imagining what we could call a cross between the Haiku and Senryu forms. Apparently Haiku is to do with nature and Senryu more to do with emotions. I didn't realise that till Steve Black pointed it out. x
Tue 9th Nov 2010 20:01
Thanks Dave, I think I was very very drunk at Pumpkin Soup...did I talk to you?It was the organiser's fault,they gave me free wine and I was mid-split up with my (ex) partner, I'm surprised I could see the paper lol!
Fri 5th Nov 2010 10:21
Thanks Dave, for your comments on 'down among the mad' - I always appreciate feedback. I, too, am not sure about the 'slightly sinister so sick' line - may well change it - bit too much susurration.
