    A difficult lesson learned! Poor dad...LOL. Thanks for your kind comments today. I'm glad you liked my poem. I have read some of your chestnuts? They are interesting. Are they a specific type of form outside the usual? Just curious...Blessings, Rhonda :))

    Yes it was well learned too and a Chestnut is a British slang term for an old joke, often as old chestnut. I am study and writing about literature, at the same time and having fun doing it so, the running inside joke
