    Hopefully you have a real job, because this so called poetry won't pay the bills!

  • M. Twain (8/8/2018 2:17:00 PM)

    This is rubbish I tell you, utter rubbish!

    (cont.) ... i don't know if she is a 'lady', but.......i bet she is. here's to you, RoseAnn. may you live at least a few more years, if you WANT TO. i'll keep the 'miracles workers' away from you [if i can] next time you are enjoying the 'blue petals' in Heaven.

  • Bri Edwards Bri Edwards (3/29/2018 11:47:00 PM)

    (cont.) .. she was 'revived' my the 'miracles of modern medicine', but i think she could have 'kicked' modern medicine...............you-know-where! ! ! and IF you don't know, just ask me!
    with over 23,000 poems to her 'credit' on PH, she is a 'few' over my total. [that's another joke]. when she answered the phone, she sounded like a young lady, but she isn't exactly young! (continued) ...

  • Bri Edwards Bri Edwards (3/29/2018 11:46:00 PM)

    (cont.) ...if even 66.6 % percent of what i've heard about her life is true (some enviable, some not) , she has had an amazing life! ! the one thing i 'can't believe'...[[ but......i do believe ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE in this and other worlds ]]....is that she REALLY died and went to Heaven! ok, maybe it happened, in which case Meryl Streep could play the part in the movie; they are almost exactly the same age. (continued) ...

  • Bri Edwards Bri Edwards (3/29/2018 11:44:00 PM)

    NOW I'LL ADD MY 'two............or three........cents. i had my first phone conversation with RoseAnn today; i hope it is not my last. i said: this is Brian Whitaker (which is my REAL name) . she said: 'is this another telemarketer? so then i said this is Bri Edwards, and she then knew who the i was. NO, she did not hang up! ! it was a good thing too; i would have had to call back. ha ha. [yes, i'll do the laughing if you don't get the joke]

    RoseAnn is a marvelous human being, a beautiful soul and a brilliant poet. I give her the distinguished honor of H.U.M.A.N.I.T.Y. She has humanity in her. May God bless you beyond measure.
