does this mean that david is the go to guy for getting
out the storm...???

and if by chance, terence were to fall out of bed in a room with no floor, who would be there to winch him back up?

and wasn't poe designing for the house of usher until it fell on hard times - and they were such beautiful creations, adorned with telling appliques and fuzzy tails and hearts - all the press kept raving about them

Love this

i always laugh so hard on the 2nd reading.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
