  1. I love this mischievous look, Maren, in this photo. You seem to be daring anyone to question your opinion. Good picture and great poem.

  2. Congratulations, Maren. I am proud of you. Your photo is lovely and a great poem!

  3. Glenda and Brenda,

    Thank you both! Most kind! I'd like to think that when that photo was snapped I was laughing at myself!

    I hope neither of you need Raymond's services, but if you do, hope he is available - he is very popular.

  4. You are funny, Maren. Raymond is indeed popular, I'm sure.
