  1. I have a HUNCH I’ve see this HEAR before…It rings a BELL. It’s ANGES I’m BACK-pedaling. I could be wrong FRO, sometimes I feel like I’m getting a little PHOBEUS-minded. Why don’t HUGO on without me. Just because they PARIS up, doesn’t mean we have to stay CHANEYd together…You go LON…I’ll catch you later. Right now I’m tired, KID..NAP is calling me…πŸ™‹πŸ»

    1. I Knew a bad morning was ahead of me
      Because Game 3 of the World Series went till quarter past 3(am)
      I’m getting too old to stay up that late
      The last time I did so I was on a hot date
      It was tough solving the quip with so little sleep
      This morning my thinking was not very deep
      For about 10 minutes I felt like a nerd
      But soon I figured out “flightless bird”
      And then it came to me just like a photo
      The strange answer of quasi-dodo
      This quip was tough I almost had to beg
      Because I feared I was laying an EGG
      But now it is solved and I’m ready for more
      But not til tomorrow and after Game 4

      1. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»Brovo! Bellissimo! Encore! Encore! I love it…Excellent job! You have me LOL!
        I have to agree, the game took me by storm,
        With so many innings…so unlike the norm…
        One wondered “Should I just concede and get sleep”?
        But I knew I’d only be looking to peep…
        It sure broke some records, and cost us our rest,
        But that’s what one gets with the best vs best…
        I laugh at your comments, though doubting they’re true..
        One never grows old if their mind stays anew…
        And dating the hot ones? I can inderstand..
        That part maybe falters, but ain’t memories grand?
        So nothing to fret ’bout, there’s nothing denying,
        You solved it regardless the effort of trying.
        And now you’re deserved of taking it slow…
        Let’s hope that tonight no 18 will we go…
        Just open a cold one, and try to relax,
        I’m hoping for just 9…keep it to brass tacks! πŸΊβšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. You always know EGGS actly what to say. Your ear NEST effort is admirable. It keeps my mind sharp to rhyme a word with BIRD. Who thought up this quip AL Bumen? I was a little SHELL shocked when I first tried to solve it. Once you get a few key words though you can FLY through it. I don’t mind an occasional HUMP in the road but I usually get right BACK to normal. Have a nice day and we’ll DODO it all again tomorrow!

    1. ROTFL! You’re very funny! And witty… And Thank you. And I must say, your Al Bumen is a keeper! EGGScellent! 10 points, easily. The rhyme with Bird? When I try to teach punning and rhyming to my Little Nieces and Nephews? They love to go to “turd”! Gets them going every single time…They love to YOLK around. Just what is it with kids and bodily functions of any kind? Too funny, right? It was a good challenge this morning, but it would have stuck in my CRAW had I not completed it. My motto is: I SHELL get this done, or I feel I’m ROBIN myself”. Well, one of my mottos anyway…πŸ˜‰
      It’s been pun, BC, a real FLIGHT of fancy, and I wish you a great night. How’s your weather by the way? We’ve been in the throes of a Nor’easter since 2 this morning…Brutal… Fierce winds, things FLYING all over the place…and so much rain, we’re WADING..I hope you’re faring better…Ciao! See ya on deck! πŸ”βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. It’s pretty cold , enough to wear a coat
    And if we get anymore rain , I’M ABOUT TO BUILD A BOAT(Noah)
    It’s way too early for this kind of crap
    But it gives me an excuse to go take a nap
    I guess I shouldn’t let it bother me
    There’s tons of football on tv
    I’ll open a beer and eat some chips
    The only problem will be a few pounds on my hips
    But it saves me from having to roll up my sleeves
    And go out in the yard and rake my leaves!

    1. You’re causing me to laugh again…but what happened to your break?
      It hasn’t been but 1/4 hour and again you do partake!
      I do agree it’s way too soon for weather of this kind…
      If I see snow, I swear I’m going to go out of my mind!
      A perfect day for TV, the college teams are playing..
      I’m watching as I look outside and see the trees all swaying!
      You needn’t tell me Noah, a Catholic knows quite well…
      We have to know so many things, or chance going to hell!
      And as for leaves, right now I feel they’re staying where they are…
      I’m LEAFing them until they reach the wheels of all the cars!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚m
