I won't out him or her. . . yet . . . but, incredible as it sounds, there's another Spherian who has reached that august milestone recently. It's like having Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron on your team!

Yea, Janice! Your number reflects not only talent, but also hard work, which I admire just as much. I think I may go count mine now, but I'm not going to report the number, because it ain't gonna come close!

Kudos, Janice D.--

Thanks, friends. It would not have happened without Eratosphere. So Lance, it is I who am lucky to have you and all the other members. But thanks for the compliment!

Cathy, when I learn to write sonnets like you (I wish!) that will be a milestone.

Mike you will reach it. Hey, man, you have a book.

Jayne, on my next trip we can open that Champis anyway.

Bill, it made me quite dizzy! Dizzier. You have likely reached that milestone faster than I. If I had got that Kate-clone it would have gone faster.

John, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ar-qBj3JN4 HA!

Maryann. Not to forget: Excelsior: the Shades of Night by A E Housman

The shades of night were falling fast
And the rain was falling faster,
When through an Alpine village passed
An Alpine village pastor;
A youth who bore mid snow and ice
A bird that wouldn't chirrup,
And a banner, with the strange device
'Mrs. Winslow's soothing syrup.

Beware the pass,' the old man said,
'My bold and desperate fellah;
Dark lowers the tempest overhead,
And you'll want your umberella;
And the roaring torrent is deep and wide
You may hear how it washes.'
But still that clarion voice replied:
'I've got my old goloshes.'

'Oh stay,' the maiden said, 'and rest
(For the wind blows from the nor'ward)
Thy weary head upon my breast
And please don't think me forward.'
A tear stood in his bright blue eye
And gladly he would have tarried;
But still he answered with a sigh:
'Unhappily I'm married.'

Ed. Cally's agent and my fellow Hoosier! Thanks for all encouragement. Also, it is not hard to guess who Mr. Who is.

Charlotte. I should live so long.

Jean. Keep track of those statistics. You never know when you might need them to apply for a fellowship, or residency. KEEP COUNT.

Thanks all.

Congratulations, and thanks for sharing the news, Janice. It's quite an accomplishment.

I'm sure 100 is just around the corner. Awesome.

Thanks, David, Tracey, and Kim. I'll just latch on immediately to say that you have all contributed to improving my outlook on poetry. I learn every day.

We can let this slide now. Many thx.

Thank you, Alex.

It is 103 unique publications now but I'll stay mum about it until i get to 130. Able Muse helped me over the hump, so thank you very much.
