Off we go again...

Last New Year's Day I posted this poem of mine. Today here's a link to a poem by Frank O'Hara (1926-66) that I read last month and liked (see the poem here). It's got a huge cheek, this poem, but in its place I kind of like cheek. Indeed where would we be without cheek..?

All the best for 2010 to readers, friends, fools and casual passers-by. May it be a great big cheeky one for all of you.

Oh and, a little later than intended due to visitors and other stuff, here's a photo for Captain TFE. We love you, you marvellous crazy creature you.

It's obsOlete, of course.It's bad enough misspelling the words I don't know without doing the same with the ones I usually do know! Pip pip!
