    And Joe, see what response you get.<br /><br />Exercise is exercise, and always worth the effort. Poets are no handymen. It took me three days (the last three) and 10 hours to fix a sprinkler head on my front lawn. <br /><br />So don&#39;t give up. Why not bring in a few more posters when the gruel runs thin. Guest posts. That&#39;s the way to broaden the conversation.

    Vassilis, the self-critical craftsman. I read somewhere that if you were potty-trained too early … but then I&#39;m no shrink. Enough to note that your dovetail joints feel seamless…<br /><br />And Tom, I don&#39;t plan to give the exercise up. It&#39;s the only exercise I get!

    Joseph–please do not give up this exercise. It&#39;s a &quot;notebook.&quot; Sometimes the pages will be blank, but staying at it permits the possibility that there will be much more.

    hmm….seems I&#39;m only handy when it comes to repairing my shoddy poems and even then I&#39;m all thumbs!

    If I repaired my own roof it would drip like a colander full of freshly washed lettuce….

    went up onto my roof last week<br />had to wait until someone got home to<br />help me down<br /><br />I located the nail through which the drip dripped<br /><br />roof leaks only when it rains<br />so <br />I&#39;ve delayed going up to spread the goop…<br /><br />now,<br />I am of a mind that if I seal it<br />we will be dry for the next 20 years<br /><br />as<br />I am now 70 20 years hence
