Oh, I can see how that could happen! Good one, Jan. Trying to sleep with a twisted back can also be problematic, methinks. Did you know that Fred and Ethel did not get along when they were making the I Love Lucy episodes? Just a bit of trivia there.

I don't think I ever saw one episode lol its just names I came up with to try and get over the fact they are old:-) just loving the comments:-) hugs jan xx

I noticed, amazingly enough, that the 'heroes' of this limerick are named Fred and Ethel. I immediately pictured that aging couple on 'I Love Lucy,' Fred and Ethel Mertz! That gave me quite a howl, I'll tell you. Thanks, Jan! ~ Still chuckling, gw

Aren't you the least bit surprised Gershon is not in India researching the temple walls for wheelbarrow instructions?

I’ve had a bad back for weeks... been blaming it on gardening... now I’m not so sure. To think, all this time I’ve been avoiding ‘the wheelbarrow’. Thanks for the witty diagnosis Jan. Terry

Oh, Terry -- not the wheelbarrow. Oh, please, try the 'Double-Twist-Pretzel-Knot' before the wheelbarrow. Please! lol. ~ gw
