poetry couple feature

Today it arrived, the Monday, Dec 6 edition of the south florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper which has a groovy feature on Denise Duhamel and Nick Carbo in their Life Styles section. So, when I went shopping this afternoon at the local Publix supermarket the chatty checkout lady says "Hey, I saw you in the paper today. Your picture was so nice and I loved the poem you wrote about the horse and the snow and the dark woods. I could see all the details. I grew up in New England you know." Didn't have the heart to tell her that was a Frost poem she was remembering. But hey, if there is one supermarket checkout lady in south florida that even reads some poetry, that's a good sign.
