How about “kidney”: the place where a young child’s leg bends. I suppose we could go on and on . . .

Good one, TG!

I have been absent from most blogs since heading out to Colorado on the 22nd. Now that I’m back, I’ll slowly catch up on your postings.

Tippy Gnu - June 3, 2017

You might want to save some time and skip them. You haven’t missed much. Hope your trip to Colorado was enjoyable.

I’m glad you’re back . . . loved your Unicorn poem. And your Stolen Quote posts are often a hoot. 😀

So funny! Some are oldies but they are goldies too.

Word play can be funny . . . and punny!

BTW: I’ve been absent from most blogs since heading out to Colorado on the 22nd. Now that I’m back home (at my Mac), I’ll begin to catch up on your postings.
