      Hi Aqui,
      Thanks for helping me out with the new image for my picture. It fits all of the lettering now!

      Yes, you noted the Keats reference, did you? It was Keats or Yeats, and I chose one 🙂

      Well, you can have a Kit Kat bar and I’ll have the Diet Coke. How does that sound?!!

      Love to you for your day,

        And it is my pleasure to help you no matter how

        Love right back at you

        Aquileana 🙂
