    The limerick thread

    There once was a man named Ti Ed
    Who had plenty of foam on his bed
    Unlike the picture of Dorian Gray
    He gets younger and younger each day
    And though fused he can still turn his head.

    Thanks guys.

    I having a little trouble right now as I lost a good friend. He drowned in the St Lawrence river. If you remember the professor in "On golden pond" well, this is pretty close.

    Grieving is one of the most difficult things. I cant say much right now.

    Ed-- so sorry to hear of your loss. We will understand your silence from the forum for awhile.

    Mary Lou-- I lost both my parents within 4 months of each other one year-- 2001. It was a difficult year, but you are right, you will get through it. I am feeling for you too.

    Prayers and love to both of you. Hugs, Susie

    Ed I am so sorry. What a tough thing.

    And Mary Lou I am so sorry for your losses. Losing a parent is something I have learned to live with but will never really get over it.

    Take care both of you.
