: Rich and Elaine,
: If I am breaking any rules,
: please please forgive me!
: Can't help the urge, this stuff is just too funny to let go without highlighting...
: Look, it's not a bad day in New York, I live across Macy's
: and they had a wonderful group of tap-dancers tap-tapping on the street...carnival atmosphere...

: scene of singularly satisfying serenity. Softly shrubberied shores studded with subtly sibilant saplings surround the
: shimmering susurration of the shining silver sheet. Several silent, shadowy sylphs swayed sympathetically aside the stricken Sachemess as, seated on a shaded sandy shoal, she softly sang her sweet, seductive song. Suddenly stentorian shouts shattered the sacred scene. "Sachemess, surrender! This is a Serious Siege!"

: "Following the salvo, Scotto desperately tried to reload his musket, but kept getting badly tangled in a large piece of heavily fringed white brocade which was draped over his shoulders. Finally, in total frustration, he ripped the floating obstacle from around his neck and flung it in a heap on the ground, screaming "Dammit, Alice, you're going to try to stand up by yourself for a minute!"
: Again, sorry if I broke any rules re. not posting something from
: the MPress onto the Board. I won't do it again.
: Sincerely Penitant Smiling Willow
