Yo ma-in-law what's with all the time out?! ;-)
I've been busy providing my very nice dental surgeon and his lovely assistant and the rest of the staff at the dental office all the funds they'll need to send their children to really good colleges. (At the risk of sounding immodest, it is true that I'm always thinking of others. :-)
I'm afraid I need to apologize to you for something I posted here while you were gone. It was an apparently really bad limerick (#1274). (I'm not sure we should call it "bad," since it actually got "mixed reviews," ranging all the way from "Nooooo!" to "Not thaaatt!!")
However, the truth is the limerick wasn't really my fault, because SharonCarter started it, and she kept encouraging me to say sillier and sillier things, and I can't speak for her motives here, but it's pretty clear that She's the one who Should be given a "Time Out," and Not Me!
I appreciate your listening to my side of the story. And now, since I know you to be a fair man, I'm sure you'll do the right thing.
Thank You for Your Kind Attention to this Matter,
motherinlaw, P.U.L. (Professional Unlicensed Limericist)

Motherinlaw: I'm afraid that I can be of no help at all in passing judgement on any type of poetry ( my reason for that is that English is my second language lol ). If the moderators let it go by then things are all okay here.
Thanks for the good wishes. I'm still on the dial-up system here and my PC is getting older and rather fussy ( yes I know, me as well lol ). Anyway I kind of drift in and out of internet service and try to stop by when I can.
LMAO I'm afraid I misunderstood your creation , our dearest mother-in-law, lol... I thought you were implying that you were not going to follow through with the introduction to your son.
Don't worry, cabby, I was just joking -- It wasn't a "bad limerick " as in "dirty," -- it was "bad" as in "poorly written." I enjoy writing Silly Stuff -- not offensive stuff invoving hostility or actual "bad" words, so I have no "fear" of "moderators."
To quote Eliza Dolittle in My Fair Lady, to Professor Higgins: "I'm a good girl, I am!"
["Oi'm uh GOOD Guhl, Oi Yam!"]
P.S. I didn't know English wasn't your first language. Given where you live, I'm guessing it's French ... ça c'est vrai?
--- Thanks for the new posts.
Motherinlaw: Time has come for me to tease you a bit lol. If you go way way back to some of the early pages of this thread you would see that I'm a little German kid ( hence cabadenwurt, ca coming from Canada and then add in Baden-Wurttemberg ). BTW I liked the " My Fair Lady " film.
