With Neville and Drew as temporary host
This place is stimulating, you feel enjoyment to post
You work hard to make a rhyme that sounds and goes right
And your rewarded with votes and a marvelous comment in sight
Then Neville and Drew make this site of drabbles richer
With western fighting and mysteries that make a clincher
Or the low and high life of gangsters a sincher
Finally marvelous people come with a story to place
Or some just read and vote, an important need in this space
Love being here, place only needs a bar and some beer

    Great stuff and thanks for the very positive namechecks Peter. I love the Drablr site and sometime worry that I’m indulging myself too much... but it’s my drug. Re the bar/beer... next time I have a bottle of ‘amber nectar’, I’ll raise a glass to you (although it might be the middle of the day your time, depending on your time zone - ours is GMT) You might sense the ‘Cheers’ in the ether!a lovely tribute to Drablr... and it’s really thanks to Michael Cook who set it up and runs the site. Cheers Michael!

    Thanks Peter, what a wonderful accolade being named in a poem!! Another lovely bit of writing as usual :)
    In addition to the regulars, there are a lot of talented people that visit and occasionally post - they should post more!! Yes, that's more than a hint! Some people may doubt their talent - but they shouldn't because everyone has something amazing and something unique to give.
    As Neville says, that's a great tribute to Drablr, the site, the work and everyone on it.

    I'm currently half way through a bottle of Shepherd Neame's 1698, a fine strong ale, so I'll raise my glass to everyone on here, and especially to Michael Cook who does all the hard work, especially when the glitches set in (which is rare, thankfully).
    Cheers everyone, cheers Michael :)

    Just realised that "Some people may doubt their talent" may sound like some people may doubt other contributors talent. Happily, that never happens on Drablr. Everyone here is unbelievably supportive and always have been :) What I mean is "some people may doubt their own talent".
    (Personally, I blame the 1698... hic! go on, try some...) :)

    The 1698 is very strong. I have a bottle waiting for me in the fridge. I just need the courage to take it on. I’m impressed that you can still write coherentlyish Drew!
