    Mr. Earley, I was laughing so hard - I nearly fell of my chair. So, eloquent in so few words. It reminded me of a friend who is a 'player'. This is so appropriate for him. I had to send it as an e card, though I wish him well and that it should be his epitaph when he's a 109. PS: thank you for reading some of my work. I have new ones, please feel free to read them at your convenience. Respects.... (Report) Reply

poet George Gordon Byron

There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
