Well, that took me back a bit. Your old memories are a great deal more detailed than mine! I'm 78 and, like you, scribbling a bit without expecting publication. I will look up your other poems, keep writing.
Best wishes,
Ann D Stevenson

Loved the poem, so clever and funny. A much needed bit of humour in lockdown.

I was lucky enough to accidentally stumble on your poetry, which I very much enjoy. Like you, I am retired and finding writing poetry very therapeutic, both in lockdown and because my husband is battling with cancer. Also like you, I am glad to have discovered Family Friends Poetry, who have been kind enough to publish a few of my poems. Very best wishes - keep writing! Ann
