There once was a friend of mine, Who was famed for making wine. Her visits were great, As she brought a crate - But I lost a week each time. For Francine's Bottle of Wine contest, written 17th June

Jack This is humorous and made me chuckle. I would probably lose a year with just one sip, since I've never drank in my life. LOL Thank you for the nice comment on my Shakespeare poem.

OH NO! Is that what happens? Boy I better get the old calendars out and see how much time I've lost vs how much I got left! Trouble! :) Always a pleasure reading your stuff Mr. Jack. Hey wait, while I got you here, does that week lost rule count with Jack Daniels? I hope not!

Love your Limerick Jack. I so love wine Jack, sadly I can't drink much as the acid in them affects me. Good luck in Francine's contest :)
