but it WAS off topic for me to go off on a nostalgia trip remembering my in-person times with those I met. For that, I'm sorry. This really isn't a thread for memories like that. Feel free to delete those posts if you see fit (since the software settings don't allow me to do it myself).
I like your off-topic rambles, if there were no off topic rambles, where would we all be. Poets ramble off-topic, that's what poets do, that's one reason why they are poets - it's when you ramble off the beaten track that you come across the missed, the shy, the rare, the unappreciated.
I thought the software allowed edits up to 7 days? Maybe I'm wrong. But please don't delete it anyway.
"I'm nearly back" would be a good title for a poem.
I would have been back before now, but as fast as my reply develops y'all post new stuff - hush up for a while and let me catch up. Besides, we have a LOT of snow, and everyone knows that when it snows in England life stops.
