Magpie #68 Take Two


Things are a blur I cannot see

Holding up one finger I see three

Groping around I figure out why

I needed to pop in my other eye

Oh, now that's just clever, Kathe!

Two memes tied together so smartly!

My hat's off to you for this one!

I enjoyed both of your magpies, different but both clever little pieces of fun.

Very funny - when I saw the first photo I thought you were going to go the migraine way!

Sioux said...

Very funny. I love the whimsy of it.

Ha! I like both takes. Is the teddy bear story true?

Kathe W. said...

Thanks everybody for the nice comments! and yes that Teddy bear story is true. My brother and his wife still have both their Teddy bears together on a bedroom chest of drawers- pretty cute!

LOL Kathe. Very good!

Yeah, I'm really glad I don't have to pop this in every day.
