Hey Rob! Thank you for yet another mission from Italy! By the way, in case you like films, have you watched Everett's "The Happy Prince"?
Thanks! Yes, I saw it a few times at the cinema. I liked it, although I think I prefer the Fry one overall. But they’re kind of each their own thing.

Hi--
I see in the MW that I have 3 readings "assigned" to me, but I actually have submitted and uploaded 3 readings that are ready for PL. (FYI).

Thank you, Larry! I especially enjoyed the Balloon Peddler, because it strongly reminded me of Mary Poppins! Except that instead of Cherry Tree Lane, it's on Chestnut Street. Even the book title is suggestive :mrgreen: (Chimneysmoke)

Thank you, Craig! Another amusing poem I feel! I guess it could be read as dramatic, too, but maybe it depends on the mood, and that's why I found it amusing. This listening session leaves me smiling :D
