Young granddaughters are stunners:
Such news is old hat;
Now they’re riddlers and punners –
Where did they get that? 

Snakes’ school subject with most fame?
Hissssss-story you seek!
Mice – just name their favourite game?
That’s hide and go squeak! 

Favourite pastime of a cow?
Moooo-vies they attend!
Lovesick ballads they sing now?
Moooo-sick your ears bend! 

Frogs say about something cool?
Toad-tally awe-some!
Poor pussies who are in school?
Dolphins, you saw some! 

Horses in adjoining fields?
Neigh-b’horse, that would be!
Duck quacks when cracked egg it yields?
Right sound, eggs-quacked-ly! 

(Adaptations of their stuff,
Altered for the rhyme –
This is much more than enough
For the present time!) 

Re the subject heading: maybe I should approach the subject of local dogs doing riddles and punning on rubbish bag collection day (barking, ‘Lettuce pray!’) in the near future?

P.S. This is apparently my 1 111th post on WordPress!

    I remember when I was a “big girl” and I could ride a bike without training wheels, it was one of the greatest feelings ever

    Lettuce pray?! Come on! There must (should) be a law about such puns!
    🙂
    Glad to see your granddaughters growing up fine.
    (I was a total failure in teaching my daughters how to ride bikes. If there was one single tree a hundred yards away they’d end up in it. No helmet. My brother-in-law taught them)

      I am inclined to agree about the salad veneration!
      My tuition method was to go in stages from a bike with training wheels, to a scooter for getting the hang of balancing, and finally the bike on a slight downhill to take away the wobbles one gets at first when pedalling. Seems to have worked!
