I am with Mark, the first time I heard the American fanny I was a bit perplexed about the casual way you lot threw the word about. Took a while and different conversations to realise exactly what you lot meant.

Don't stress Deb, you said worse >:D

Thoroughly amused us all  :-*
Please, do tell. My pink cheeks can hardly wait.  ::) :o :D I mean the rosy cheeks on my face. Gutter brains, all of you.  :P 8) ;D

Deb! How can you even think that of us? It's not our fault if you keep making improper remarks, is it now? With your pink cheeks, eh? Naughty, naughty, naughty!  ;D  ;D  ;D

There was a young lady called Deb
lots of fannies filled her sweet head.
To make sure we know it
she thought she might show it ...  :o
and that's why we're waiting with dread.

I believe I entered this and that poem is still in limbo waiting to be perfected - if that is even possible.


Is this a writer's forum or what?
 One month and one year is plenty of time.

Get your damn poems in, People.

Can you promote and move the deadline to Sept 30, 2019, Mark?

Hey! It's back on. I know I sent Mark a poem LAST YEAR - and I adhered to the rules. The rest of you, ah-hem, writers, need to get busy.


Mark, are you promoting this everywhere you can?


I guess I can contribute one more. It was a fun exercise.

Now writers - get righting and writing.


Mark, you need to change the date in the title.  :-*

Well, I mentioned it to Mrs Goggins at the post office and to the lady who delivers Parish newsletter, so I think I'm doing all that could be expected of me.

Oh, do they write here?   ::) :-* ;)

You know me, I'm obnoxious about promoting these things when they are mine to promote. I post a link in every thread I post in and hound my friends, you know, like Patti. >:D She says she's not a poet but she always seems to rise to a challenge. I'd certainly challenge Patti. Ha! :P Then there is Gyppo and Firefly, Dan and Vienna, Laura and Noiz, Gran, DWin, Indar, Colm and you. We have a competition. You can't count on people to read these stickies so you have meet them where they frequent. Hijack, sort of.


Where has Amie been?  What about Ollie and . . .  I know there are others? I need some coffee, then will return with my thinker thinking. Not that it will help or make me any less obnoxious but it will give me the incentive to start writing again. 


Sorry, if I seem pushy. I guess I am - pushy. Please forgive me.

Just trying to help.  ::) ;D I'm almost desperate for us to get this forum hopping.
