Thank you so much for the giggle, Chris. I just love Maxine!
Excellent advice, Seumas Gallacher. Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
…it will come as no surprise to some of yeez to learn that as a wee boy at school in Docklands, Govan in Glasgow, Master Gallacher was a bit of a ‘smart-ass’…a trait that has doubtless recognisably carried forward into my more advanced years… always first to raise my hand to try to answer the teacher’s questions… always striving to be first finished with the classroom-bound written exams so I could, “…go ootside and play, noo, please Miss?”… comes now ‘The Writer Age’… the Scribbler-at-Large... pensmith of novels… blithely transferring the contents of what’s left of my wee grey cells onto the laptop, hopefully for international reader consumption, and possible approbation… thus far, yer Lordships and Ladyships of the e-Reading Universe have wrought unbounded kindness and generosity on my WURKS, by downloading my baby masterpieces on a regular basis… Kindlers Listers, all, yeez…

Master Gallacher offers his knowledge and experience to all of us authors! This is great news!!
…far be it from this ol’ Scots Jurassic scribbler to blow his own bagpipe, but in seems a groundswell has taken place whereby enuff other writing folks deem my supposed prowess in the craft sufficient for them to entrust their own wee literary baby masterpieces to my eye for, either/or/or both, proofreading and copy editing… I posted the undernoted to my Facebook page a few days ago, and am gratified to have received enquiries from other quillspersons already… (if yeez don’t let them know where yeez are, how else are they gonna find yeez, Mabel?)… as they say in all the classic notices like this… ‘quotes available by return’…

A hard working girl that’s what I am
from the day I’m born ‘til the day I die.
After a quite spoiled nursery,
my work will be valued high.
There are 12,000 sorts of us
spread out in all regions of the Earth
even in the desert and the arctic circle
surviving heat and ice with mirth.
Some of us exist under water,
deep in an Australian pond.
Our buddies in the desert run the fasted
With at least three feet per second.
Our smallest sorts are tiny
Less than 1/3 an inch.
Our biggest friends are monsters
2 ¾ in. and they can bite and pinch.
We all live in a monarchy
Mostly working girls and queen
The boys are good to fertilize
then they die and food they’ve been.
We can carry 10 times our weight
We never rest or pant.
I guess you’ve figured out by now
Oh yes, I am an ant.
