  1. Land ‘a livin’. Does that really happen? and Where? Very good poem in that every detail moves along into the next and the reader can understand each line clearly. And your wife is a champion weightlifter? Good for her – altho makes my poor old bones ache to think about it. Reckon I won’t take it up any time soon. I liked the poem.
