My landlady looks like a rodent,
But I moved in with her, and pay no rent.
She with whom I cohabit
Has restraint like a rabbit,
So the pool boy moved in as my cogent.

ALL FOURS Ė ALLURE

Yeah, Rhuby and I have been tag-team partners for some time now.

In the morning on all fours it travels,
But thatís just the first of its marvels.
Itís on two legs by mid-day
But the full course it canít stay Ė
Itís on three as its allure unravels!

THIS IS A VERY OLD RIDDLE

JAGGED - JARGON

THAT'S RIGHT - OUR TAG TEAM NAME IS atm-gate!

I was doing some of these limericks, and have attempted
one or two (I'm slow), but by the time I get going, you
all are on the next set of words. Which is OK I really
enjoy your "tag team" efforts, much better than mine. Just
wanted to let you know I read them and am appreciating
your efforts.

Many thanks, Luke, for your kind words.
I guess you might get a chance when it's night-time for me: it's only 7pm for you when I go to bed!
And you are a couple of hours ahead of Peter, I think?

Aha! I get you: Tip Toe thru the Timezones. Gadzooks!
Has it come down to that???? Guess that is the only
way I can get a word in edgewise. Ok, I'll give it a try.

Thanks, Luke, I'm glad you can appreciate what I (we) do. I certainly have fun wrestling (there's that tag team connection) with the problem, but my daughter thinks it's crass to laugh at my own humor. I, for one, wouldn't mind seeing multiple efforts on these, that we needn't be shut off just because somebody else has already posted on a pair of words.

Rhuby, for what it's worth, Luke and I are three hours apart, but with the hours I keep I think I'm often going to bed as he's getting up.

The Jersey Shore is jagged.
GTL so we's not ragged.
DTF...what is this jargon?
Beg your pardon,
I just gagged.

I know I could dabble with a posted set of words and enter
them anyhow, it's just that they seldom are as good as yours.
Bed time: I stay up usually to 1-2 am Central Time, so
you could be right Peter.

If you wake and find this world unsatifactionary
Look up "reactionary" in your dictionary
See? The way to go is retro
Think with your brain, not libido
Dump the subversionary; marry a missionary
