The Pepper Picker

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers so that makes him a pickled pepper picker...right? Preposterous! Peter picked peppers but they were not pickled until Peter pickled them, after Peter picked them.

Planting pepper plants pleased Peter. Precipitation particularly pleased Peter's pepper plants.

Persnickety Peter personified perfection pickling peppers.

Perplexing pecks preoccupy people's perspective. Period!

Peter went to pick his peck
crikey he said, oh what the heck
my peck's been pecked
my pickings picked
all my peppers have been nicked

he looked around him with a sigh
and what was it he did espy?
there on the fence sat a fat woodpecker
licking his lips, the pepper peck wrecker

but you peck wood poor Peter said
you've pecked my pecks, are you right in the head?
wood’s all good laughed the woodpecker
but variety is the spice of life
said the smart-arse little fecker.

ROFLMAO!!! Are you right in the head?!?! OMG! I have turned you into a rhymer. Love it! @agmoore is going to love this too. Thanks for the much needed laugh Hun! : )

Yes! Before I answered you I wanted to check the post and see if @deirdyweirdy came through. Oh my heavens. Worth the wait.

Finally! The mistress of rhyme and unreason :))


Thanks for stopping by Omra! How is Evie doing? PLMK.

Her amputation surgery is tomorrow. I can pick her up Saturday and then the healing begins. It'll be a relief to get somewhat back to normal. I'm worried about my sweetheart. She's been through so much.

Aw, poor thing. I am worried too and both of you will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers Omra. Hugs!

I'm sorry to say the surgery never happened. There was no point. Her preliminary blood work showed her kidneys to be failing. My sweet girl is scheduled to be put down Thursday afternoon. 😢

Oh, NO! I am sooooooooo very sorry to hear this news and my heart breaks for you Omra and Evie. I will say a special prayer for both of you. You know that you are doing what is best for her and it is the loving thing to do. I am in tears. At least this was found before surgery and she was saved from a lot of pain. I am at a loss for words. Please know that I am with you in spirit and I am here if you need a friend to talk to. My thoughts and prayers are always with you, my dear friend. Sending you much love and many Hugs!

Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. And I want you to know that it has been rescheduled for Monday at 6:40pm.

You have been in my thoughts and prayers every single day and night. Sending you much love and big Hugs Omra!

Pondering pickled peppers poses a perplexing puzzle. Personally, I prefer people who pickle peppers pell-mell over those who pickle predictably.

I'm sorry. Looking for @deirdyweirdy. Did my best--waiting for her perfect counterpoint :)

You have once again displayed verbal virtuosity (this alliteration can get out of hand) :))

HaHa! ROFL!!! I love ir! @deirdyweirdy now has competition! Verbal virtuosity? Woah...I love that too. I am too tired to respond but I am sure it would get out of hand. LOL! I do hope she responds to your comment. Thanks for chiming in AG! : )

I always marveled at Peter! Lol

HaHa! He is a tongue twister trip. : )
