    Think I liked the first one best – very Lewis Carroll ish!
    Is there no-one else out there to test your considerable skill?

    OK how about……

    Hi Jayne,

    I do what I can with the time I have 🙂

    Also, I’m surprised as well that no one else dares challenge me.

    While I like your latest topic, I fear it must wait until after tomorrow’s feast, which I will cook. That, of course, starts in just a few minutes when I bake the sweet potatoes, make the pie crusts, and cook the cranberry sauce.

    Until I manage to move on Friday,

    A great poem – thank you! How was the Thanksgiving dinner? Wish my husband would learn to cook – or wash the plates, or make the bed!

    Looking forward to a busy Christmas!

    Hi Jayne,

    The dinner was good. Not the best I’ve cooked, but above average. My wife insisted making rolls for 5 people wasn’t worth the effort. She was wrong. Store bought rolls just aren’t very good.

    I do all that, except make the bed. For some reason it’s beyond my physical ability. Nothing is straight and everything comes untucked quickly. On the other hand, I do most of the cleaning.

  7. Jayne Says:

    Sure your wife really appreciates your skills and the bed making is a minor issue! The best I get out of my hubby is morning tea and the odd Sunday breakfast. Mind you I still get to wash up the mess after!

    Since no-one else seems brave enough to take up the challenge, how about:

    The wonders of a porterpotty!

    Happy rhyming.

    We call them ‘longdrops’ here – dig a hole, put a seat and I leave the rest to your amagination!

    I can’t believe no-one else can come up with a title for you?
