Thanks for taking the time to comment on my little piece 'Snapshot'
I found a couple of old photo's of me when I was a tot, and realised (from the snaps) how different life was for me, compared to what my Grandchildren are ploughing through
I've started scanning the important photos (with ancient relations etc) and noted the names of those who will fade from memory in another generation, and put them into a Powerpoint slide-show

There you are, Yvonne! I was getting Lover's Balls waiting for you to re-appear.
I hope you are keeping well and you mysterious disappearance was not caused by anything serious.
Have you dried up? You haven't posted any poems for quite a while.

Hi Yvonne. Thank you for liking my Disturbing Verse. It's very encouraging.
Sat 13th Jul 2013 10:03
Thanks for the comment Yvonne. Enjoyed your samples.
Fri 12th Jul 2013 21:08
Aye, aye, Y.
Thankyou for your kind thoughts on "A Toast to Craig and Hannah". Originally I thought of getting them A Toaster for Craig and Hannah as a prezzie but the pome was a lot cheaper.
(Not sure what you meant by 'well executed'. It wasn't a recommendation for me, was it?)

Hi Yvonne, thanks for your comment on "The Last Song." I do love trying out different styles and skills, and its good when they come off!!
Sun 7th Jul 2013 22:36
Glad you liked "Ray-Bans". Your own little ditty was well worth posting, I thought.
Fri 28th Jun 2013 14:20
Thanks for stopping by and reading 'richard Burton ' -best wishes, Steve

thanks for commenting on 'I wish I had a harley' Yvonne - my fear of speed would mean I never went near a petrol lawn mower - never mind a Harley - as John says 'born to be mild' :-)
Wed 22nd May 2013 23:30
Glad you liked "Filey", Yvonne. Next time I catch you there you can have a lick of my lolly.
Wed 22nd May 2013 19:25
thanks once again for your comments on 'noticed' Yvonne - I'm glad you like the 'flag' words earlier in the poem - I had an exchange of views with Harry on this - I wrote them in early because this man lived like a ghost when he was alive - he was a ghost when he died. So you got it spot on regarding what I intended. Very perceptive as always :-)
Sun 19th May 2013 23:14
Glad you liked "Your First Hut is the Cheapest". Sheds seem to provide me with a lot of my inspiration, perhaps because I spend a lot of time in them doing nothing.
Sun 19th May 2013 15:13
thanks for the comment on 'deadly nightshade' Yvonne - yes, I liked the single line ending, which turns it from what appears to be a love poem into something more sinister - nice that you picked that up
Sun 19th May 2013 09:17
Thanks for commenting on my poem Yvonne. x
Tue 14th May 2013 19:01
thanks for commenting on 'eyrie avenue' Yvonne - it's an older poem of mine and the characters are actual people - glad you liked it
Mon 13th May 2013 19:05
Hi Yvonne - I enjoyed your "like for like"
response on my last post (oops...sounds like I'm tempting providence...musically speaking!!)
Wed 24th Apr 2013 23:42
Yes, of course the photo was of me. Your application for the position of Chief Groupie is therefore accepted. But I hope the rest of you will be in better nick than your eyesight.
Mon 22nd Apr 2013 00:54
Cheers Yvonne for telling me about the name of the 'A Day In The Life Of comp. All sorted now. Cheers!
Thu 18th Apr 2013 20:29
...and true, Yvonne.
The experience of meeting Tony Blair was informative.
He was introduced to me and asked me something. As I was answering I could see there was no-one at home. I couldn't blame him; he was dealing with international crises, economic issues. He looked totally shagged out.
5 minutes later he went outside for a press statement and as soon as the cameras rolled he transposed instantly into totally animated, switched on Tony.

Yvonne- miners picketed docks; miners picketed power-stations and motorway junctions- miners were desperate and upon occasion resorted to desperate measures, two striking Miners and one scab were also killed.
Thu 18th Apr 2013 06:14
Thank you once again for taking time to read my stuff. Ths one was done cause my 90 year old mum wanted me to write a "pome" about when I was a kid. (Another request was "sausages")
It is so pleasing someone enjoys what I write thanks.
Thu 18th Apr 2013 00:29
Thanks for your kind comments on 'class action' Yvonne - you are right about the grammar and I've now changed it - added a post to the original so that it makes sense to anyone coming along later - thanks once again for taking the time to respond
Mon 8th Apr 2013 23:15
Thanks for commenting on my coat poem Yvonne and apologies for the delay in my thanking you - things are a little manic over school holidays and I forget to do things.
Your comment was bang on - and my pockets are full of loose buttons :) x
Mon 8th Apr 2013 19:18
thanks again Yvonne - glad you liked 'jigsaw' - I would have put it in the competition but I'd already submitted 'in the frame' so felt it wasn't right to send in a second
Sat 6th Apr 2013 20:45
Seems the challenge worked. Glad you like the result. I was pleased myself (is that too much ego?)Thanks for the positive comments, they give me the idea I must be doing something right.
Fri 5th Apr 2013 11:03
Thanks for your comment in my poem 'How To Be Better'. Much appreciated. X
Fri 5th Apr 2013 00:46
Pleased you enjoyed "Don't Think Twice..." and the piccy of my taut bottom.
Thu 4th Apr 2013 09:03
I was advised by a friend to post stuff on here, so I did, a few at a time. Obviously not knowing how it works. Thank you for the advice on blogging. Also I am pleased you like the stuff I have done, you are spot on with FFS, I love reading that one. As I mentioned previously I am new to writing and am a totally accidental poet. I have no understanding of the structure of poetry or how it works. I sit, I feel, I write. Raw but real. Seeing that people actually read my stuff and give feedback is very reassuring and helpful. Sorry about the novelette. :0)
Wed 3rd Apr 2013 17:47
Just like to say a heartfelt "TA" for your comments on my offering Home Sweet Home. It is an emotionally driven piece. This is happening to a friend of mine. As for cynicism I have to agree 100% with your observations. Governments present and past have become very adept at smokescreening and I agree (but this is a different matter) What about the people who have been repossessed? Another poem in the offing? I am afraid I am very new to writing and have so many ideas flooding through, I simply write what is in my head at the time. Thanks again for your comment, much appreciated. :0)
Wed 3rd Apr 2013 15:01
Thanks for your kind comments re 'the clown' - so pleased you liked it on both levels. Really appreciate your supprtive comments Yvonne
Mon 1st Apr 2013 11:38
I'm not so sure you would want to solve my 'gropexxxx' conundrum. Suffice it to say that 'quaint' was a chaucerian clue!
Sun 31st Mar 2013 23:35
I'm afraid you are a little too delicate, Yvonne, to enter my competition on Gropexxxx Lane!
Sun 31st Mar 2013 18:05
thanks for your kind comments on 'in the frame' Yvonne, I am, as always, very grateful for you reading and appreciating
Thu 21st Mar 2013 09:26
Sorry for steaming up your spex, Mama!
Thu 14th Mar 2013 18:45
Hi Yvonne - thanks for your nice comments on my Minnow poem :)
Mon 11th Mar 2013 16:13
I'm so glad you liked my "Dog's Bollocks".
A bloke I worked with used to tell me I was like dog's bollocks in understanding anything. I took it as a compliment until he told me it was because I was always lagging behind.
I have been polishing my shilling non-stop since you sent me the invitation!
Mon 11th Mar 2013 14:42
sincere thanks for your kind comments on 'Copernicus....' I really appreciate your continued feedback.
Sun 10th Mar 2013 16:03
I've just been listening to your two songs. Delightful, especially "Kushagarnie" which has a timeless feel to it. Both are most appealingly sung. You are obviously a gifted lady with much to offer. Well done, you! I enjoy folk - The Watersons/Martin Carthy and the Fishermen's Friends...to mention some; and,of course, Country from the USA. They go to the heart of what it is to be human - with all its trials, tribulations and happiness.
Sun 10th Mar 2013 15:46
Hi Yvonne - thanks for taking the trouble to
comment on "Paper Chase". I understand your
liking for the Daily Telegraph...a sane and
sensible "read" for those seeking one step up
in the search for information. I once had the
satisfaction of having a letter published in
The Times, challenging noted columnist and
broadcaster Bernard Levin about his use of the
term "agent provocateur". Those were the days!
Fri 8th Mar 2013 22:39
Glad you liked "WonderBale".
The Gallaghers based their version on mine, you know.
Fri 8th Mar 2013 20:14
The Dusty road of life needs some more work yet Yvonne but thanks for reading. Best wishes, Steve

Thank you for your comment! I was really wary about posting it! : )
Thu 28th Feb 2013 21:54
Ah, there you are, Bonny.
I'd not been able to get at you for a couple of weeks.
Many thanks for your kind comments on "Frowns of Silence".
What I want to know is this: what were we boys doing at school when they taught you girls such classics as "If you don't know, I'm not telling you." and "Just imagine; when we're married we can do this every night".
Woodwork, I expect.
Who would want to learn such deadly lifeskills when you could be making a pencil case instead?
Thu 28th Feb 2013 21:48
Thank you kindly for your much welcome comment on my poem.
Thu 28th Feb 2013 11:00
Thanks for your kind comments on my 'neighbours' piece Yvonne. I may have exagerated the circumstances a little for dramatic effect (I don't have a cat!) ;-)
Wed 27th Feb 2013 22:30
What are you calling "my auld cock"??
It's no older than me, thankyou very much!!
Sat 23rd Feb 2013 22:28
Thankyou for your observations on warming up bottles, Yvonne.
Mon 4th Feb 2013 07:43
Thankyou for you comments on "Going Home Time", Yvonne. Good to hear that you're from vergernal stock. I don't suppose it's given you a thing about the uniform, has it?
Mon 4th Feb 2013 05:53
Thank you kindly, Yvonne, for your kind words in response to my poem about legal tender:
"clever piece, so much said in so few words. well constructed. I enjoyed it."
You are most appreciated. Cheers.
