and snugly drink cold drinks
while all life swelters.
Then, when the angels cry
they call it rain

but any lullaby

Well. As the owner of 16 animals, I salute you and thank you. You will always be my favorite. :) ... And please don't change it. It's perfect.

Not a bad idea, Robert but you should have told me privately. It's like making love - once it's done it's done.......no going back and changing a hair..... The local animal shelter had to employ extra staff to put down record numbers.... How disgusting. Thanks for the kind words. H

Remembering that here in Australia, the silly season is also the summer season H
