...Look what Edvard started with counting the lines of poems...



I’ve been trying to bike that distance,


Firstly it was but one mile, now two,


Twice around the park before dinners stew,


A ride to get me out into Nature,


And to keep me from feeling otherwise blue…

Are you cheating on the distances as well as the line counts?

Li'l brother Jersey Ed, there's an opening on Tour de France if you are game, remember Lance Armstrong? he won that seven times never trying, so for ya it should be a piece of cake!

Wait a Minute - Did old Brother Edvard teach you how to count using the Swedish Method?!

If 6 lines is really 5, does that mean 2 miles is really only 1?!

And that would mean you better ride four times around the park before dinner, instead of two!

Well let's see 5 lines in two miles is kind of about maybe the square root of 5 minus a fuck it.

Love your title, Ed! Whenever numerals and alphabets combine, something weirdiful follows! There were only five lines, unless you added e, divided by two...

Otherwise, just this summer, I'm doing water aerobics!, when I get there, but, I've found it fun and exhilarating and fluid and kindly in hiding flaws of flabbier bodies. Most of us are older, some are not.

As you probably already know, I am a cycling fanatic so I can relate to this to some extent, Ed. Good for you! Love and peace,

OOPs, it is 5 lines, Jackie thanks for pointing it out, though I could use the "e" as the sixth...? LOL, Ed

Ed, you are going to be so healthy! What very good habits you are acquiring, my friend. And I read optimism in your words. this 5 lines, not 6? Typo, m'dear.
