      I am glad the point came through. Gambling is a terrible thing.💜

        I heard so many terrible stories when I was a kid when people in Hong Kong went to Macau to gamble, they lost everything and could keep only the underwear!! People even said that they swam back to Hong Kong (but it’s not possible with the distance). Now China is planning on building a bridge from Hong Kong to Macau ( 60 miles). 😦

        I know what it is like to have a gambler in the family. It is awful, and frightening. Even when they have it under control they can slip at any minute. I too have hear of the problems the Chinese have with gambling. Every nation has it problems neither gambling 💜💜

    Willow, I’m only sharing the photos for Haiga on the recap. Don’t forget to email me your poem and links so I can add it to the recap by using the submission form. This will be the last time, I pick up the entries from the comments. I spend about 4 hours on the recap, so I need all the help I can get. LOL! ❤ Your tanka is spot on, my friend. ❤
