Ha! Ha! Yes I am hoping they did!
You are going to go through them all; right? Doing what you can. Doing what you do best!

Haven't been tempted to diagram a sentence since elementary school (I was kind of obsessed with it)--I'll be doing it all day today.

Had fallen behind on your blog--am going back through all these great poems--you're on some kind of run.

very best--

Owen,

Lovely to see you again. Yes, I've been going nuts since elementary school, too.
