Hello Andrea ... I would love to write more limericks but there's a time factor. I'm amazed at how many poets can write a number of poems and comment on so many almost every day - thank you Andrea - Lindsay

Thanks again Jan ... I don't know why snails don't choose to eat weeds instead of veggies. If they did, they'd live longer - thanks Jan - Lindsay

Hello Terry ... after eating half my cabbage it signed it's own death warrant. I think your magic carrots would confuse it as much as they confused us - thank you Terry - Lindsay

You surpassed the gold standard with this one! Well done!
