Seasick

A young man shipped out on the sea;
No care if ‘twas windward or lee.
	But storms came along,
	His stomach not strong,
Now sees ships only on TV!

You'd be surprised how many would-be sailors end up getting seasick, Bartholomew. I could relate to this because I took so many people out fishing when I had my boat. A gunny limerick! Congratulations on your win. Hugs, Carolyn

Thank you very much, Carolyn, for sponsoring this truly fun contest, your kind words, and for ranking my limerick so high!! I sincerely appreciate all of that. I've also boated with family and friends, and let's just say that not everyone ended up enjoying the ride as much as I did (kind of like your experience)! Hugs right back to you, and all my very best to you and yours! :) Bartholomew

Thank you very much, Jan. I appreciate your support. While it always feels good to end up nearer the top (and congrats again on your higher (fifth-place) finish; please see my comments there), I am very grateful that Carolyn did multiple placements (very nice of her). You and yours have my continuing best wishes always! :) Bartholomew
