    Thats great Karen: I submitted a link to a poem I wrote. One Saturday morning. I drug my but out of bed and turned the television on had nothing else to do and couldn’t sleep any more, so I thought I’d watch some cartoons but all I could find was the newer kind like ninja turtles,or Care Bear Cartoons. Really in my Opinion Crap for cartoons! But then thats my Opinion. So,I was irritated that I couldn’t find my favorite cartoons, you know, the real kind (looney toons) like (fog horn leg horn)or (Tom and Jerry) or (Tweety Bird)I’m sure you get the picture now, so, I wrote a poem called “Oldtime Cartoons” I’m sure you’ll like it. I can’t wait to see it on the next up coming carnival On October 10, 2009. Thanks For the opportunity to share my poem with you and your subscribers.
