Good Morning Jan You brought humor to a sensitive subject. I very much liked the fact that the victim succeeded with a grand ending for herself. May this day find you well.

You have gotten better and better with your limerick meter and all that a limerick entrails. Ones like this one must be second nature to you now, my friend.
