  21. I deleted a comment because it sounded like I was complaining: I wrote a Magpie story only to learn that the Mr Linky folks were out to lunch! :-)
    But these things happen. As usual, I welcome the chance to take part and I join wih willow in the hope they'll be up and operational soon.

  41. I am late to the party this week but I hope to make up for that with my biographical, humorous and painful poem about tomatoes. I love the flavor but loathe what it represents in my relationship… My poem is simply titled “The Great Tomato Mistake”. I look forward to reading everyone’s Tomato inspired Magpies.
