And You Thought I Forgot...

Remember the terrible hair cut, remember the contest, remember my promise of  "On Writing" by Stephen King?  Well, the deadline is here and the entries were fantastic!  It was so hard to choose, I did, honestly, love them all.  This was fun.  Thank you, everyone!

I chose my favorite, and surprise, surprise!...Sue does this for a living.  So email me your address, Sue, and I will get your book out to my place of business, The United States Postal Service, and get that baby mailed.

Sue's Entry:

My hair marches across my head.
Left face. Right face. Full speed ahead.
A hair platoon, in disarray,
With soldiers who will not obey.
Some stepping here. Some strutting there.
Some standing straight up in the air
At full attention, as they please.
I’ve had enough, Hair. Stand at ease.
Obey my orders. Call me ‘Sir.’
Dismissed. Fall out!
(Oops).
As you were.

Okay; I hadda' go check out the haircut an' honestly, I think you did okay. I like your haircut. I jus' wish I had been able to get in on the contest. 'Course, I do NOT think I would have come up with anything so cute as Sue did. I love that poem. Besides, its just as well that I din't enter anything 'cause if I had won (by some freak chance) I have no idea what I would do with a Stephen King book, since the very idea of reading one 'uh his books is enough to send me scampering to the closet.

Happy Birthday to Melissa. Sorry I missed it.
