One day my wife said we were through

I didn’t quite know what to do

I sought friend of old

My woes to unfold

He said she had told him that too

Once again you have me laughing by myself. Where do you get those pictures? They are always perfectly matched for the limerick!

Nice twist. Obviously she'd made the rounds, at least that's the way that it sounds, even in dark, down in the park, her scent drew the barks of the hounds. Later, my friend!

HI, MH, still chuckling. You never disappoint me. You know just how to capture our attention and when you have it, the unexpected appears. This is one of my favorites.

OMG! This is so funny and sad at the same time. Poor guy! It's always the best friend. Your photos for these limericks are so great - where do you find them? It think that is your secret. Do you have friends pose for these? Do tell!

If you had spoken to your old friend before you were wed,

You never would have ended up I think with her in your bed.
