There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe


The old woman in the shoe scandal 
who had those kids, too much to handle.  
Now that they are full grown
and she is home alone, 
she'll down-size to a sandal.

    An empty nest friend mentioned this old nursery rhyme, and it began to bounce around inside my head. Glad it made you laugh.
