There once lived a gambler named Dino
who was terribly fond of vino.
Since he’d drink and play bad,
and lose all that he had,
he was loved at every casino.

But drunk as a skunk, that guy Dino
wreaked havoc one evening in Reno.
Now his vices he’s licked
after being drop-kicked
by a mafia guy named Gino.

    This has to be one of my favorite sets of limericks ever. You should repost this one day. Or at least put a link to it in a new post for fun.

    Hahaha, Andrea, only good that I'm not gambling so I don't have to fear the mafia, but you must know that different kind of mafias are active in Germany and worst is the Russian Mafia. Wish you good luck in Francine's contest! Sorry to say that my right hand and arm haven't improved and I'll have physotherapie for my left shoulder soon. I hope that at least that one will help. Love, Gert
