It’s The Thought That Counts I Guess (limerick)

Updated on November 28, 2012

To grandmother’s house we did go

To show her we still loved her so

Then wife turns to me

Who is this lady

Some grandmother we didn’t know

      She looks dangerous in that weapon, should have gone to the right grandmother.

      O, my. Grandma turns the tables...uh huh...maybe I should become like this, or, not....still chuckling...not wanting to point any fingers but I do know a few that were Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde personalities...and I thought it a bit refreshing. ps :) Sending Angels your way.
