    Well, I see that 'Max Renn' and 'Hasan Ali Tokoquin' are the same person. Go figure. Happy Birthday, Mary.

    Mary, I am here to carry
    flowers from the gang of hundred.
    Ask the man you chose to marry
    did the earth shake when it thundered
    as you two exchanged your vows,
    and another serious query....
    back at the obstetrics house
    was it maybe somewhat eerie
    when the doctor had a look
    at that little bundled joy
    who would proudly hold the book
    so much later, like a toy.
    Poems written read by many
    do you think you knew it then?
    Yes, we all possess uncanny
    knowledge that will come again
    added wisdom of much living
    rounds the picture, makes creation
    modestly by you is given
    Happy Birthday Celebration.
    H

    Mary! If your name is pronounced, like, Nagy -
    then I don't have a rhyme in my wit so waggy;
    or if it's Hungarian and thus pronounced Nagy
    well, we all know by now - your heart's so large;
    but if it's pronounced just as Allan says, Nagy -
    then - many very happy returns of the day! !

    For the members of the Alzheimer Club or those on cholesterol medication here is a reminder that Mary Nagy is celebrating her birthday as soon as she wakes up this morning. Hubby has promised to leave a six-pack at bedside before he is off to work and the kids are baking the biggest baddest cake you can imagine.Anyone's name starting with C will have the clean-up detail.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Mary and may each birthday get a bit better until you reach the age where you couldn't care or wouldn't know the difference.
    Best wishes
    Herbert

    evening update, then I'm signing off for awhile:
    if we're OK with around 100-120 pages, we have ten additional poets, and those who really want 3 can keep them (yeah) . Some are happy with one or two, which makes the group more representative and includes as many as possible. I don't think size vs. cost here is a big issue; Marcy's estimate of around $10 seems reasonable. Are we OK with size? The fun part comes next, getting them together happily...
