I can put my eye back in now

In my last post I revealed that I had won Frances Garrood's clean limerick contest and would be keeping an eye out for the small mystery prize she was sending my way.

It arrived today, all the way from Jolly Olde You-Know-Where.

Here are some closer views:




Thank you, Frances! I love the tea towel! It definitely fills a void in my life too, as I was in London in 1969 and neglected to buy a souvenir.

Note to self: I am simply going to have to learn how to orient photographs properly so that my friends don't get stiff necks from looking at my blog.

Domine dirige nos indeed.


  1. A teatowel is the perfect gift for a clean limerick.
    Big smiles - and congratulations.

  2. At last you can find real contentment in your life with a genuine London, England tea towel. You should contact "The Cherokee Tribune" so they can celebrate this good news story.

  3. Hit the rotate button maybe? Do I have to tell you everything?

  4. And now you have a trophy to commemorate your limerick styling. It is lovely and fitting.

  5. The tea towel from Frances Garood
    Was a wondrous thing to be viewed
    Showing London's sights
    And other highlights
    Like The Queen taking tea in the nude


  6. The queen NEVER dines in the nude,
    For she thinks it unsightly and crude.
    She takes tea in a gown
    And her second-best crown.
    Signed, respectfully, Frances Garrood.

    Bob, it was nice to see the tea towel. I didn't like take it out of its packet!

  7. I applaud Frances's skillful and amusing response but I am afraid that my own limerick tank is presently depleted so this dull non-poetic comment will have to do.

  8. When it comes to poems monarchial,
    YP's bite is worse than his barkial,
    Dear Frances Garrood
    Pooh-poohs queens in the nude,
    And both knock it out of the parkial.

  9. Snowbrush, the problem is that I can't find "the rotate button" since my old XP system was replaced by Windows 8 or 10 or something I got with the gift computer. I'm sure it's in there somewhere.
