Real Toads: late for Open Link Monday, but...

Very busy with the kitchen renovation and other concerns, so I didn't even post my Mad Kane limerick to Open Link Monday at the writers' group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads yesterday.
However, I did write this one (changed from an old first line of Madeleine’s).

A senior, I still like to date
But it is unlikely I’ll mate
I’m still doing fine
But I’m ninety-nine
And I certainly won’t procreate.
By Kay Davies
And this week, I couldn’t think of anything, but my husband did. Then Madeleine sent him a message inviting him back another time.
A fellow was planning to wed
A girl who was all in his head
He thought, “No big deal
if she is unreal,
At least she won’t nag me in bed.”
By Richard Schear

Isn't he just too, too bad? Well, Madeleine thought he was okay as a limerickist, but didn't comment on his husbandly qualities.

Hilarious, as limericks should. Lots of humor in both, Kay! It takes special talent to write limericks. Spicing humor with the punch-line and maintaining the essentials of rhyme and meter.Great write!

Appreciate your tips given earlier, Ma'am!

It's been busy here, too.
I'm visiting better late than never.
6 hours on the road... sigh.
Took another client to the bank today.
I'm so tired.
Thanks for your visits.
