Baying is good. Howling is batter.

(hmmm should I tell him there is 18 syllables there? naw fuck it haiku is 11-19 syllables anyway.)

Oh! Mr. Knowitall does haiku as well? I'm impressed and "you're" reads as one syllable in my book.

Baying relieves an inner ear pressure, like talking to oneself. It doesn't matter if no one listens or cares.

I went to an annual fair yesterday
I got dropped by 2 people and then accepted by 1 ! I had been ready to
bay and howl- but ended up singing
instead!

Yvonne...

Izzy...?

Well, the picture is more that enough! Just beautiful. (I am caving out time today to read the 55's from last Friday... it's been crazy busy around here, but I have't forgotten...

Is Mark from the south? because one syllable is always worth two ... :)

You're (ONE syllable!) wrong about one thing, G. Lotsa people care. But what the heck, bay away. It's good for the soul.

G-Man said...

Patti...

your is one syllable, you're is two even in the sound of it. Of course we've (two syllables) had this conversation before, what the hell else do to old men have better to argue about?
