I’ve been ranting and a raving lately, and I’m sick of it 😉

You must be too!

So I’m all up for some funny stuff.

I am going to have a ‘fortnight of funnies’ – if I get enough material. My regular readers will know I have had a citrus week and a penguin week. I do like a theme or two 🙂

So send me your funnies if you are a regular reader and commenter on my blog – poems, short stories, flash fiction, photos, jokes, tall tales – whatever (though keep it PG rated please); and I will endeavour to post it on my blog. No promises but I will try.

Now, why this emotional turnaround (you may ask)?

It started with two of my funny poems being published in Rhyme & Punishment: Comedic Verse (edited by Nick Hale and James P. Wagner of Local Gems Poetry Press from New York).

‘Local Gems Poetry Press is a small Long Island based poetry press dedicated to spreading poetry through performance and the written word. Local Gems believes that poetry is the voice of the people, and as the sister organization of the Bards Initiative, believes that poetry can be used to make a difference’ (Local Gems)

and

‘Rhyme and PUNishment: Comedic Verse is a hilarious compilation of funny poetry from 89 contemporary poets! There is something in this collection for everyone!’

The two poems are wine connoiseur and Cartoon Life.

Today I give you a warm glass of words:
