    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
