Ok. Yes, ma'am.

I'll do that.

...but I did leave something: fine print.

LOL! I can't believe I typed that here--wrong thread and I assumed she was talking about something else!

You won't be out of the loop for long. I PM'ed you to send you on the right track...but, as I said, now that you've been warned, it will lose its impact.

Default Ogden Nash animal poems

This thread is reminding me of a book of poetry that is a favorite with my kids: Odgen Nash's Zoo

It doesn't have all of his animal poems, but a very good collection.
Here is a web page with just a few of his. . .

Yes, I enjoyed reading them. Thanks, Teresa.

I really enjoyed this one:

THE CENTIPEDE
I objurgate the centipede,
A bug we do not really need.
At sleepy-time he beats a path
Straight to the bedroom or the bath.
You always wallop where he's not,
Or, if he is, he makes a spot.

(from Ogden Nash)


Even though I tend to catch them and put them outside--if they are in the tub, it *is* do-able--it made me laugh!

dapjwy-
Cute poem about a really ugly bug.

Centipede photos taken inside my home when living in Mexico. Photos are little blurry because I was screaming.

LOL!

That is not what I was picturing--not the same kind that I've seen (infrequently, thankfully) in my tub. Could that be a millepede? Or maybe mine is not a centipede.
