Cook Betty

The cooks in the restaurant found it appalling how Betty messed up every pie she was baking and how- from her tripping and falling - dish after dish Cook Betty kept breaking. What a spectacle of herself she was making! Today, however, Betty is relieved because of how much better she is faring. All the other cooks are no longer peeved, for Cook Betty has stopped all her erring thanks to the new spectacles she's wearing! (Revision of my previous post, which needed to be a quintain for Joe Maverick's Contest)

Hello my very dear friend Andrea! I'm so glad I found the winning list of this contest and saw you on top! I didn't know that the result has already been released until I saw our dear friend Sara's congratulatory comments on mine, so I went & checked on member's area then searched on winning pages. And here it is! We both did it well again and you're the Grand Winner! Biggest congrats with my biggest sweetest hugs 2 u! Almost can't believe mine on 2nd place. We'll have a toast on our wins! Hugs

Hello Miss Andrea. I feel as if you know my Betty Croker early mess up days. Well I'll never be a Betty like my sis. she's the one who lashed out all the pots and pans tripping on herself and cookware. silly gal. now she's non-stop. anyhow. this is a fun poem to read. I might read it again*LUV~SKAT .

Andrea you ask for an opinion on this Quintain and the Limerick version. Both are great But I like this one a bit more. I like the way this one flows. Good luck in the contest. I hope I was somewhat helpful. Warm Smiles, Connie
