Mike -
Your version of "stopping by woods on a snowy eve" is a beauty. Nice work!

  Well, I'll be damned!  maybe there is a God -- except in Tennessee.  But 
that's OK, there's something comforting in knowing that some things never 
change.  Tennessee -- First in Red-Neckery!    

  Great post, Steve.  Thanks for sharing it.  But be careful, though, this list 
can suck up so much time you'll find your ass mired in enjoyment.


  Whose manuscript this is I know. 
  Alas, it's still not finished though,
  And ne'er will be if I stay here,
  These words all melt like Southern snow.
  My friends must think it mighty queer
  To write and write with no end near,
  To write as though I could not slake
  A thirst for words I love so dear.
  They give their heads a woeful shake
  Are glad that they're not my mistake.
  They say it's time for a clean sweep:
  To stop the writing.  I'm a flake!
  My words are lovely, dark and deep.
  And I have royalties to reap.
  And I have royalties to reap.

  I do love this list.  Thanks to all.  I shall return (with pipe in mouth).
