Feeding Fish and On Fish, Remedy to Special Needs, Excursion, Rhymes

The family’s six-monthly new wheels. Previous ones sold to Br & Sr-in Law.




Lunch at Yacht Club.
Not of fish all, but some were! And, behind me, the kids were doing their usual fish imitations in the Yacht Club pool.



It seems I got my facts all wrong
When singing Elder Daughter song,
‘Remedial’ does not apply
Inside the UK by the bye;
No, she will set up ‘Special Needs’
And head it up, when she succeeds,
With actual teaching mainly done
By those in Dept. that she will run.

And so to the Canal District

Bearing bread, for which we soon attracted large takers.

I haven’t done Mad Kane’s Limerick Challenge for a while. So, first on the rhyme words of ‘Confused’ or ‘Eyes’ (I used both with a theme of People in Grass Houses Shouldn’t Stow Thrones):

Stowed thrones in grass houses refused:
The structure by termites confused —
In front of your eyes
Collapsing surprise! —
The Queen says, ‘We are not amused.’

Then, on the theme of a LEMON, where my vast admiration for the genus Trumpus Obnoxious shines through:

A lemon is known to be sour
But next to Trump’s visage will cower:
Compared to the pan
Of that acid man
The lemon seems sweet as a flower!

  1. New wheels every six months? You’re kidding are you not Mr Lesley, Sir?
    I’ve had the same set since December 2005, but then we don’t travel much, done 140000 km.doubt we do 4000 km a year now, cars in perfect nick I’m very fussy about that, drove for a living for many years, Crown Prince of the Road, Never the King,
    That first limerick has a bit of Spoonerism I suppose, Not as good as The Goons Limerick.
    I love the one re trump but why do you keep dignifying him with a capital T?
