Fun at Air's house

My oldest had to write a Limerick for school, with some kind of Thanksgiving theme. Combining his passions of hockey and Thanksgiving, h came up with the following.

Steve Yzerman had a Turkey
And he named him jerky
He shot the puck
Kerky did Cluck
And he was quite quirky.

To be honest, I changed some of the words because i can't remember the exact limerick, but you get the idea. And he did intuitively use one of the key words in a successful Limerick, Puck.

Well, he started complaining about school, which led me to write this limerick.

It seems that life after school
Is as much fun as eating Gruel
But on Thanksgiving Day
I get to go play
Because there is a no homework rule

Well, Veev wanted to get in on the limerick fun. Like I said, life is a party at Air's house.

So she came up with this little ditty.

Daniel says Daddy does say
seven cursewords every day
But i know he is wrong
I feel it real strong
Cause i only heard four today

Never mind that she missed out the key component, which was to work in some Thanksgiving magic into the limerick, but whatever, my oldest (whose name you really sharp readers have probably figured out) thought it was hysterical.

So I came back with this response

Turkey says Cock-a-Doodle-Doo
A Pussy Cat says meow too
But as i bounce this ball
Off the crack in the wall
Today there were zero Eff U's

Anyway, thats fun at Airs house. Feel free to limerick along.

There was a frum couple down Michigan way,
Generally, they each had so much to say.
And the mister -- he kept bloggin'
But the missus -- she took a floggin',
So for now at least Veev has managed to step far away.

But let's hope that next year
when she makes aliya
She'll be back on with Air Time
sharing juicy details with ya.

Now all that's left to say
is "Shabbat Shalom, y'all
May the Shabbat Queen be with you,
Not shopping at the mall!"

Thanksgiving should be merry
With Turkey, stuffing and cranberry
Alas I am unlucky
To spend it in Kentucky
But at least the meal won't be dairy

Thanks Pearly! I always welcome the support. I guess you're right, if I want to live in Israel, I'll have develop a thicker skin.

Zwicker, you totally crack me up!

For my Thanksgiving celebration
I hoped for a small vacation
My inlaws - those elves
just invited themselves!
now I'm stuck with the whole preparation
