Oh Mary, Mary, truly not so contrary
Did not want to be on the moon.
She was only taking a cow to the dairy
While holding a helium balloon.
"I'm not meant to be an astronaut,
I'm supposed to be on Earth.
Next time I'll tie a better knot
My promise for what it's worth!"

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
