    Hi, David: This was a fun piece, more like a prose poem, and I like those when well done, such as this. Also very educationa and funny to boot! I did not know you had been ill, as I have been away for a while. Glad to see you back in the thick of things.

    Keep up the good work.

    David you are a great raconteur. You keep your audience on the edge of their seats. What a fascinating tale and one I haven't heard before. So that's where the expression 'demon drink' came from and here was me thinking it must have been coined by an elderly spinster with nails in her heart and disappointment under her pillow. Great piece.
    love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
