Grounded and missing it! Can't Post

Hi all I'm Don i'm new to computers and have been reading these forums for a bit now.
Yesterday i got someone to help me post a poem in Blue Skies.
So i thought i would attempt to post on my own (hope it works!)
Anyhow i just wanted to say hi and how much i miss all you crazy people!
I drove truck over the road so had the chance to jump all over the country.
I got to meet some great people and made a few boogies.
But i got burnt out not having a home drop zone and always being the new guy.
So i gave it up intending to come back some day when i quit drivivng.
Now i'm back home and struggeling to pay the bills with this econamy.
But i still want to get back in the air and hang out with people i can relate to.
(Hopefully next summer) Until then i'll keep reading these forums and looking at the sky with desire.
I'm going to try and attach some of my skydiving poems. (hope it works and someone likes them)
Blue Skies!!!

Welcome to the forums! Smile I'm at work and can't open your poems right now, but it's great to hear that you have a way to describe the passion you have for skydiving. I hope you get back into the air soon!

Thanks shymama!
It will happen someday! But until then i will miss it!
I hope you get a chance to read my poems.
There's some that are sad but others are good and happy.
I write about life experiences good and bad and write it as i feel it. (Not always P.C.)

Blue skies!

Welcome Don. I'm somewhat in the same boat, but will be jumping within a year with a new jumpsuit, canopy and helmet. Where are you now?

Hi Don,

Many of us are feeling the pinch of the recession. I'm a writer myself but am not qualified to honestly critique poetry (probably 'cause its above my intellect). Best wishes and hope you get back in the air soon.

Blue Skies when you can

Yeah i guess i'm lucky to at least be woking. As far as critiqueing goes it's simple either you like it or you don'tSly
