Loose like the wind
From the rough we get par
Sleet city woman
Waiting to spar

Jack Radcliffe, Bath, 2009

* Of interest, maybe:

-- Sherwood Anderson died of peritonitis after swallowing a toothpick

-- Aldous Huxley died the same day as John F. Kennedy

-- Twice as many baseball hitters are hit by a pitch when the temperature is in the nineties than when it is in the seventies

-- W.H.Auden was once arrested in Barcelona for peeing in a public park

-- Mozart was addicted to billiards

-- Anne Sexton abused her oldest daughter

-- Joyce had lost all his teeth by age 41

-- Wallace Stevens wife Elsie was the model for the face on the United States dime and half-dollar. Wallace Stevens and his wife had separate bedrooms.

-- When Rembrandt's possessions were sold at bankruptcy in 1656, they included paintings by Raphael, Giorgione, and van Eyck. And 75 Rembrandt's. And did not bring in enough to discharge the bankruptcy.

Very interesting. If you're doubtful though, just add cowbells.

Have a good weekend. Will see you next week.
