Hi AuntShecky - thank you for the Christmas wishes and the excellent, educational blog entries Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and an even better 2010.
Would you help to spread a little Christmas cheer and vote in the short story contest this year?
Hi Aunty! I love your work!!! I don't know why you couldn't PM me. I don't have any restrictions? Curious. Oh well! Thanks for the wishes and I'm returning the same to you!
Have a soft and happy Christmas and a Joyful, Healthy and Brilliant New Year!
What to my wondering eyes should appear --an actual graphic on my profile page! Thank you very much,
Virgil, and a very merry Christmas to you as well.
Have a nice Christmas.
The Algonquin Wits occasionally played a word game in which they'd ask each other to use an unusual word in a sentence. Once George S. Kaufman was given the word "Meretricious." His sentence was"Meretricious and a Happy New Year."
So to all "LitNutters" out there, I wish you the very best wishes for the celebration of your choice.
Here's a link to some holiday fare

Thanks for visiting my profile page.
I won't be writing a quiz this week, but there will be at least 2 of Auntie's quizzes in December, including a year-end extravaganza. Coming June 2010: a new quiz thread w. some changes.
Meantime, there are a few of my verses scattered around various forums and three short stories:
"Little Shop of Quarters"
"Jackpot of Jeopardy"
and the notorious "A Savage Beast Maybe with Yellow Hair"
Thank you so Auntie. I think once you create an album, it's just a question of uplink. There should be an uplink button. I haven't done it in a while, but I don't think it was complicated. Hey I'm computer illiterate and I did it. Oh, I have to do the Veterans Day quiz. I'll post it tomorrow.
Thanks for visiting my profile page. In addition to verse in the thread titled "Auntie's Anti-Poems," and other pieces of verse that can be found in "Poetry Games and Contests, here are some recent postings--
a short story, "A Savage Beast Maybe With Yellow Hair"
The current quiz topic is "Autumn and New York"
Previous quizzes include:
Oct 21--Trees, Shoots, and Leaves
Oct 28-- Trick or Treat
I'm never sure if I should post poems on the boards any more. I would like your thoughts on my poem that I entered in the Autumn Poetry contest. I posted it in as a blog, here: http://www.online-literature.com/forums/blog.php?b=9173.
Still, on a chalk plateau
ésprit de l’escalier
Freed by your indulgence
One ring to rule them all
