If you drink, don't drive.

What famous person said that?

And then there was the condemned golfer who asked the hangman,
" Mind if I take a few practice swings? "
(Hal Roach)

When golf first started, one under par was a birdie, two under par was an eagle and three under par was a partridge. They had to change that because you couldn't get a partridge under a par three.
(John MacKay)

I shot a birdie today. The little @#$%&# wouldn't stop tweeting while I was trying to putt!

    I think Groucho Marx may have said the line about after all is said and done, but am not certain. No matter, it is a great and true proverb.

    Kim writes with an amazing mix of fun writes and puzzles...these puzzle make us think; Love solving any mystery- -believe is knows so much on just about everything - and this characteristic only adds to the enjoyment i am having reading him. So glad that you decided to get back to writing, Kim! What a joy you are!

Best Poem of Kim Barney

Shall I Compare Thee To A Bale Of Hay?

Shall I compare thee to a bale of hay?
Hay is more lovely with a better shape.
Thou must have seen many a better day;
One look at thee and one tries to escape.
Sometimes too hot the sun on thee did shine
And that is why thy poor skin is all burned.
I thought that I could look at thee just fine
But suddenly my stomach overturned.
Yet thy eternal glamour cannot fade
For fade it has already; it did flee!
It is too late for thou to find the shade;
For a picture of wrinkled, look at thee.
And now the time has come to end this song;
To have it go on longer...
