Magpie Tales #296 Grocery Shopping

Joachim Buecklaer   1560
There once was a lass named Daisy
Whose memory was rather lazy
"Tis best to have a list
Than get home with something missed"
Returning to the market would be crazy.
Thanks and a tip of my hat

  1. Very well done and I can relate to this very well at this time of year. Everyone is there.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. Fun poem. i read recently that biologists are studying these old painting to see just how much fruits and vegetables have changed over the past few hundred years. Watermelons look drastically different than those depicted in old paintings.

  3. oh....that market !

  4. A list is essential! She certainly does look competent to get it all done.

  5. Memory like a steel trap !

  6. A rather cute little poem

  7. Nice limerick, to have a list to buy - the best idea ever instead of wondering about and feed the impulsive buying...

  8. Ha.. yes but I can imagine she needs quite a lot the lazy lass.

  9. Oh yes...thanks for the smile...

  10. I write shopping lists and leave them on the table! Reminds me of other saucier limericks ;)
    I agree with all the statements about leaving comments. I like to leave comments when I visit blogs, but if I have to jump through hoops, I just give up.

  11. Crazy, unless, there was good reason to go back (wink, wink)


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!
