I once had a friend, Elmer Fudder

Who had an obsession with butter

Could not tell bull from cow

But he soon found out how

Milking what he thought ... was an udder!

Way to milk that pun, Gershon ... I'm a punner from way back! (The worse, the better!) Thanks, Buddy! :o)

Thank you so much, Tania - I don't do a lot of light poetry, but I enjoy it when I do ... especially if it can bring a smile to someone else! Blessings! :o) <3

Oh, thanks so much, Jan, but I didn't get it in in time ... I always wait until the last minute, lol. I missed Nina's contest, too ... I was going to write both this evening, but they were closed when I got home. I just can't check in here all day, so I miss stuff. Your compliment and smile will be my lovely award - and the best kind! :-) <3
