Thanks, Betty for both of these contributions.

Collecting Playing Cards is PL OK
A Word About Golf PL Note
4:57 golf holds so many analogies, you say apologies

Chad, I'm sorry, but neither your poem nor your story are about hobbies. Please submit them to the appropriate collections. They are interesting as history!

Bill, I'm sorry, but your Pope's Game of Chess has nothing to do with chess as a hobby. It is, however an interesting love story and I hope you will save it to submit to the next Love Stories Collection. And, sad to say, I can't accept your McCloud's Hobby to this collection because I learned recently that I can't divide Coffee Break stories in two, as I can in other collections -- the point of this collection being that a person can hear a whole story during one short break!) I encourage you to splice it together and submit it to the ongoing Short Story Collection. You might mention that it has already been PL'd by me.

I do have The Pope's Chess Game audio file still on my computer, but McCloud's Hobby is long gone. If you happen to have downloaded the mp3 file to your computer, please save it for me.
