That's funny. I was thinking that exact thing when I posted this. For this small mating ball the second part should read "...when first we practice to conceive." ;) Thanks, Rosemary.
Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
