WHAT WE’VE UP TO:
We’ve been checking out the new snow hole in the garden that Zoe dug out today!
Here I am in the hole:
We have also been enjoying poetry. Our favorite kind of poetry is limericks. If you don’t know what a limerick is, here are some examples:
There once were two cats from Kilkenny
Each thought that was one cat too many,
So they started to fight
And to scratch and to bite.
Now, instead of two cats, there aren’t any.
There was a young lady of Niger
who smiled as she rode on a tiger;
They returned from the ride
with the lady inside,
and the smile on the face of the tiger.
There was an old man of Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket;
But his daughter, named Nan
Ran away with a man
And as far as the bucket, Nantucket.
But he followed the pair to Pawtucket,
The man and the girl with the bucket;
And he said to the man,
He was welcome to Nan,
But as for the bucket, Pawtucket.
No, we did not make those ones up, unfortunately. We are not that clever.
Speak for yourself, Lola!
Well, we started two limericks, but we couldn’t finish them. Right, Sasha?
I guess that’s true.
Maybe you readers can help us finish them?
Here are the first lines of the two limericks:
There once was a cat from Kentucky…
There once was a kitty from Venice…
Please finish these limericks for us and leave them in the comments below!
We have a shout out to our new viewer this week in Lithuania!
And a hi to our other viewers this week from Canada, Denmark, the US, the UK and Norway!
Sharks kill fewer than 10 people per year. Humans kill about 100 million sharks per year.
This is a video that Zoe’s aunt sent us about a Norwegian cat who likes to ski:
