Goodbye, princess

It is with deep sorrow that I share the news of the death of my cat, who has been a loving and sweet companion to me for thirteen years.

The Limerick Game, Part Two

See here for our earlier installment.

Some of the best lately:

July 22 - July 29

The princess of fairy tale lore
Slept on peas ‘neath her bed, but no more.
Since discovering them there,
In her ears and her hair,
"Henceforth, only futons!" she swore.

21 Dec. 2007 – 15 Jan. 2008
On the twelfth day of Christmas, she said,
“Are there MORE days of Christmas ahead?
All those pipers and rings
That the holiday brings…
Make me just want to go back to bed.

21 March 2008 (my favorite)
It seems that I never do learn
Why despite all the money I earn
My savings keep dwindling.
I can just afford kindling
Which means I have money to burn.
