Festive Limericks 3 Ding Dong!

Better late than never, I suppose. This next lot of festive limericks are dinging and donging merrily on the cusp of absurdity. And one requires a little help with the festive cheer. A little punch perhaps. A cracker of an ending. Read on… if you can get to the end, that is!!!

There was a red man in the sky
Who bellowed with laughter up high
“With a ‘Ho! Ho! Ho!’
Onward he’d go
Following reindeer who knew how to fly!

The sprout on the plate was lonely
It was there, the one and only
Beside carrots and spuds
Turkey bits and puds
But the rest of the meal was homely

The snowman looked on with glee
As white was all he could see
But he had a surprise
When he cleared both his eyes
And found he was on a beach in Hawaii

And now, over to you… complete this festive limerick in the comments below.

There was a nice chap called Bob
Who wanted a better job
One day he was called
To remove a fireplace wall

Letters The To Universe… Rearranged Edition, The

Dear Desk,
I’m awfully sorry to keep shifting you and things this way and that… but it is all for a good cause – it’s so I can use my brand new computer with ginormous monitor to do one thing, whilst using my existing computer to do another, such as update my blog. Your current layout works do much better than previous attempts, so I’m sticking with this one.

Dear Old Computer,
See? I told you I would still be using you.

Dear New Computer,
Hello and welcome to the Mansion, and beyond! I’m still installing my software, which I know will take a while, but it is taking a while. I shall get there one day soon, I know it!

Dear Thoughtless Dillops,
As you know, your terrible driving gives me the right to give you the name ‘dillop’. You may not give your disregard for other road users a second thought, but for some reason lately, I have been troubled by your less than adequate driving skills. I’m writing just to let you know, that from now on, you are on your own, and I shall merely observe your behaviour and dismiss both it and you in that instant. I need to rearrange my thought processes a little, but without having your actions there cluttering my mind, I should find this task quite easy.

Dear December,
Have you rearranged your days this year? I’m sure it was the first only yesterday.

Dear Brexit,
I do hope you are not trying to secretly try to coerce my vote should we be plunged into another ridiculous referendum. I tried to find an unusual word online that meant the same as ‘rearrange’, so it would tie in with this week’s Letters To The Universe. The website I chose advised me an antonym for ‘rearrange’ is ‘remain’, which made me think that it isn’t exactly an opposite meaning. Unless it’s just me and all I can see as the opposite there is leave.

Dear Fingers,
Please be aware that just because I haven’t mentioned you for a while, I am still aware that you are trying to influence my typing by rearranging my letters for me. Just because the keyboard is on the opposite side of the desk, the keys are still in the same place that they always have been.

Dear Blogland,
Just to explain, Fingers, for those of you who may be unaware, is my Inner Typist. He loves nothing more than rearranging my typing as I type. He makes it take twice as long to get a good post out.

And Finally, Dear Becky,
I’m running out of square photos for your December Square ‘Time’ challenge, but I do have a couple left… ‘foody’ ones, if you like. Today’s photo is ‘Lunch Time’…

Thank you for reading,

P.S. This is a scheduled post, so I shall be adding a link to Becky’s psot ltaer tdaoy. Orehtswie, vsiit Bkecy’s stie tughorh the Lniks Pgae avobe. FINGERS!!!!!

Tufty Time!

Tufty may not be around these here parts of late, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t reminisce about him…

… just as he appears to be reminiscing about past times here.

Posted as part of Becky’s #timesquare challenge. Link below.

I’m still perched at the end of the table, with TV screens, keyboards, computers, speakers, modems, mouses, and incense  stick holders (I know!) all around me, but I’m determined to try and keep this blog going as much as I can. I’m even trying the ol’ visitin’ of other blogs – but only a couple mind, so I apologises if I haven’t got to your blog yet. I also don’t seem to be getting the half a megabyte per hour internet speeds I’m paying for right now, which kind of slows things down a little.

Ah well!

Still fun.

And time’s flying with it!!!

Out of Time

Out of time itself comes this relic of a car…

I think it’s out of fuel as well.

Posted in response to Becky’s #timesquare challenge. Link below.

Not only am I out of time, I’m also out of space at present as well. Posts may appear sporadic (well, more sporadic than usual!) as I’ve treated myself to a spanking new computer (gamer no less – not that I’ll be gaming… no time for that malarkey!) and whopping huge monitor (well, TV if truth be told), and I’m currently downloading all my bits and bobs onto it. It / they are taking up quite a lot of space, so the original computer, monitor, mouse and keyboard set up, the one I’m using for my blog posts, is perched right at the end of the desk, and I’m in the tiniest of spaces typing this now. When I get longer cables, I’ll be able to spread things around a bit, but until then, I shall be posting through this letterbox of a space. ‘Tis all fun. Onwards and upwards!!!
