    Where is " The gnome with the scolding wife" ? I found this in one of my mother's school excercise books from 1931! It's a lesson for many of today's menfolk!

    When I was a new kindergarten teacher, on rainy days, my teacher mate would recite would Wouldn't It Be Lovely.

A fierce old ****-cat sits on her back
With a sharp thin tail sticking up like a


While her mistress crouches over the fire,
Be the day cold or be the day hot,
