Fun Monday # 18 Ode to Computers

Nikki is hosting this week.

Anyone who read my post written earlier today will know that I wasn't going to enter this week. I've been struggling with my idea but now I've given in and decided to publish this......

Ode to Computers

There was an old woman whose blogging
Caused hubby to blame her for hogging
Instead of a fight
To help put things right
She bought a second computer to login!!!!!!

and here is the proof!!!!


I'd rather be sick than miss out because I've read some really good poems today!!!!

Great poem. I am always in trouble for blogging - for not paying enough attention to my DF!

*standing applauding*
Well done! Well done!!

And Matthew and I also applaud the Macs! We're quite Mac-y ourselves!

Very, very cool!

sabrina it had to be something simple

joy the small mac is 7 yrs old, very slow and not worth upgrading but useful nevertheless. Embee can do all his committee work and I can blogat the same time!!

Is that an apple I spy? I am jealous.

Great poem - I'm glad you joined in the fun.

beccy I tried to skype you earlier but no reply even though someone was online.

mind the gap- I know exactly what you mean!!

stephanie we like our macs- not that we'd get into the BIG debate

amy thanks

beckie it is an apple and I've only recently bought it; I really like the larger screen as it saves straining my eyes.

He,he...I am glad that you joined in the fun. You have a fine poem. We have a similar circumstance in our household, which is funny. I used to hate computers.

You win.

We have two computers (or more) too. I always thought my hubby set up two so he can have one on the end of each arm. Maybe one is for me?

now that's a great end to a problem. ;D
good job.

One of my poems starts off talking about an old woman but ends with shipping tape. I will share that one eventually.

Great poem !! My mother got a computer for Mother's Day because my father never lets her on his !! I would have never dreamed that they would both be so interested at their age. I don't have a Mac but I hear that they are wonderful to use.

The BEST!!!!!!

(When I giggle, I jiggle. so you made me poetry in motion)

mjd I can't think why I didn't get another one years ago

CC I had to include the old boy somehow!!

theotherbear you must claim one quickly

pearlady and he's not allowed to use it well he would know how to anyway!! he knows less than me about computers

sam chicken or egg!!

terri thanks it was a struggle I can tell you!

bs you tell your mum to get blogging and join in all the fun.

pamela laughing is supposed to be good for you so glad you had a giggle.
