Not only have I moved, but have taken on some family responsibilities, so I won't have time to host to many swaps. So any help will be very much appreciated. I will still do a few swaps, for I've enjoyed my time with Swap Bot and all the friendships I've made along the way. So until next time, see you at the Mail Box.

Hi Pam!


Once Upon An Autumn Day - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

Once Upon an autumn day, Colorful leaves began to fade In the midst of a chilly, frosty air As multitude of trees grew steadily bare.

Once upon an autumn day, The whispering breeze was here to stay Moving aimlessly through the countless trees Scattering leaves with the greatest of ease.

Once upon an autumn day, The leaves whirled freely in every way, Until at last they came to rest Finding a haven in which to nest.

Once upon an autumn day, The trees were dormant, and the leaves lay Waiting for the winter snow to fall To quickly obscure them one and all.

Love and blessings,

Your friend, Yvonne
