Ahhh, Nigel, that's pretty convincing indeed! Love the rhymes :-)
JennyO, I hear you! It would be fun to send PMs (not PMS but PMs he he he) and I DO like to feel I belong. What's holding me back is that I like using the name "daylia" - it has a special meaning for me - but someone is already using it on Mudcat. Maybe I'll hyphenate it or change the spelling a little.
And thanks for what you said about my posts. I feel a "kinship" with you too, and that's pretty wonderful seeing as you're in Australia and I'm in Ontario, and we've never met in person. O the wonders of the internet ... "it's a small world after all"!
I'm 'feline' pretty ready right now! When I'm finished teaching tonight you may just see daylia-in-blue (or something very similiar)!
love to you all
