Here we are...

...a group of Baby Boomers of sundry religious,
political and cultural orientations, who have been
meeting at the Voorheesville Public Library since 1991
to read and discuss each other's poems.

We include old fathers and young grandmothers,
artists and musicians, and run-of-the-mill eccentrics.
Writers are welcome to stop in and stay if they like us.

Are We Ready?

I don't know about the rest of you, but I've been having a really busy week and still have tons to do. I am trying to curb my late night habits and get some sleep. I haven't gotten much writing done. I have talked to many of you - got yelled at by Tom (joke), had lunch with Mike and Larry, which is always a pleasure. I hope some of you are bringing hot dishes to share on Saturday. I am bringing a frying pan to cook sausages. We have an oven to keep things warm. I will be at the lib when it opens at 10 a.m. and will need some help setting up the room if anyone can come early. Some of you have asked about getting together after the program. Tom offered his house, but we decided that Smitty's was a better option in case we were all too tired to continue talking. We do have several signups from people who have seen the flyers. Please make an effort to talk to the people who show up that we do not know and make them feel welcome, including the musicians. Dennis will be back from Florida, but Art will still be out of town this weekend. All of the rest of you, I assume will be there! We have set up a display table with poetry books you might want to check out. I had a lovely Easter with my son and his family from NYC, thank you. See you tomorrow night.

    Hey! I never had any prob's doing this so I shouldn't this time either... Right?

    I concur, it was the pancakes and friends...

    I miss Mildred too! Maybe next time I should offer to go and pick her up if she is up to it.
