OH MY GOODNESS .... WHAT WAS THAT ??? I just felt myself beginning to dematerialize. November is almost over, and my reign as MOTM is almost over as well. I'm beginning to see sprites and spirits flying through the air. They have come to deconstruct the magical elements of the party. Soon the November Member Of The Month Party shall become an ephemeral mist.

I better start my MOTM bucket list [8- (

uuuuuummmmm ???

1) Do the laundry

Wait a minute .... wait a minute ... wrong list !

It's always so sad when the magic dissipates. Good thing this place has a magic all it's own 8)

Now @Graverobber, as a snowman, you, of all people, should know that the magic melts and is transformed but returns once again as snow the next season .... we will have a NEW Member Of The Month for December (I learned that from David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas).

All things are connected!

Just like a vapor, your reign has come to an end,
But who knows what lies, around that next bend?
Even though you soon have to hand forward the baton,
Your reign was still fine, and will not be soon forgotten.
You ran the race well, and brought joy to all,
And as your time passes, remember to stand tall;
For you did the job asked, and gave of yourself a bunch,
And you will always remain, a retired Member of the Month!

I didn't get a poem at the end of my reign. :lol: :lol: Maybe I didn't run the race well or bring joy to all or remember to stand tall....
....but I did dance a lot.

@rssllue - Your poem reminds me and inspires me. I must make an acceptable farewell message to all the members who were kind enough to attend my party !
