I am going to have minor surgery to remove both big toenails permanently tomorrow morning, so there might be a small gap in the limericks. I have one ready for tomorrow, but the wells of inspiration have been a little low of late and I don't have any more written. I'll try to think up some more while I'm laid up and I'll be back soon.

OW! I'm sorry you have to get your toenails yanked out. The Woman's friend had one done last year, and it really creeped the Woman out to just think about it...she curled her toes up and said Ew Ew Ew a few times. In fact, she's saying it right now.

I hope you heal up quick and it doesn't hurt too much!

Karen Jo said...

Thank you all for your concern. It's not quite as icky as it sounds, but I won't be able to sit up with my feet on the floor or stand for any length of time for a couple of days.

OUCH!, my husband had that done too. Felt great afterwards though.

Victor Tabbycat said...

There's a blogger called Karen Jo,
She's an honorary puddin, you know.
She writes limericks for cats,
Even the ones who wear hats,
And she's loved wherever she goes.

~ Victor
Get Well Soon!

Karen Jo, we hope you are feeling better soon. I don't even like it when Mom clips my claws, so that doesn't sound like much fun at all. Purrs & Nuzzles.
