Hi Jan the funny thing about your lovely limerick is that, it actually rings so true I’m a real scatterbrain, yet I try to behave so organized, great humor cheers David

Now, now Jan: Tell the truth -- Your brain's just fine. It's your eyes that told you to leave that list behind. Now you can buy anything you want. (Ha, ha. I do this all the time. Ask my wife). Anyway, lists leave me pissed... Wink and nod, Gershon

So, so true. Good to know I'm not alone. I did that just this week and had to shop by memory, which is a failure waiting to happen! Love how you turned this into one of your classic limericks, Jan! Made me laugh out loud.
