21 Feb, 2010

 

Hi Arlene...

You've been eating that special poetry-producing chocolate !!!

Excellent. :o) xxx

Olympic medals now all strimmed...
The FPP's hopes of glory drastically dimmed...
Parrots, helped by Arlene, to save TT
Are working hard to set her free....!

They certainly look up for it TT.

21 Feb, 2010

 

Hello Doctorbob....
"Kraft" parrots just doesn't sound the same, does it.... Lol.

I reckon those psittacines will save the day :o)

21 Feb, 2010

 

~To great rejoicing throughout the land
those despicable FPP have been banned ~
~and with threats of plastic melting gel
are facing life in a padlocked cell!
Hooray!

21 Feb, 2010

 

At least they're thwarted for a while...
Banished with determined style..
But we must be alert all year...
In case the FPP's reappear....

Yay !

21 Feb, 2010

 

this 'poet' chocolates really great

it must be the amount we ate.....

oh deah I think I need a glass of wine.....

21 Feb, 2010

 

Glass of wine ? Clever girl...!
That will wash down your Cadburys Twirl. ;o)

21 Feb, 2010

 

I decided on a glass of sherry
too much often makes me merry!

That it Tt-- my head hurts.....

Yo Ho Ho, nearly choked on me rum.
Parrots 'n' chocolate?
Now that sounds like fun!
Roll out the cannons an' bolt down the 'atch!
The darned FPPs 'ave sure met their match.
Me crew's down wi' "scurvy", but can all 'ardly wait
to blast 'em plastic blaggards into pieces o' eight!
But, aye, Pretty Pollys, one small favour I begs -
D'ye think ye can lay me some gold Easter eggs?
't would lift the weight o' 15
burly deadmen off me chest,
an' be an awf'llly big adventure for
an Easter treasure quest!
An' as for ye. "school" Mistress 'Toonie!
(no parrotgraphs, note ye, just the ramblin's o' a "loonie")!
I 'as no doubt that ye shall be saved,
an' shall keep this picture safe in me faves.
'ave run out o' rum - but there may be some port.
Well, they says any o' this does as well in a storm.
There be a twinkle in me one eye, per'aps a real glimmer?
I spies ahead wi' me one eye "Terra firma" !

21 Feb, 2010

 

~well done David!~ you must have had quite a lot of that poetry producing chocolate!
maybe find some gold foill easter eggs~the solid stuff is quite expensive these days!

21 Feb, 2010

 

Those proud Pirate Parrots are antique and rare...
Steal my bold brave birdies from me if you dare...
You won't see these gems on TV's Cash in the Attic...
Not even if prices would make me ecstatic...

Some free golden parrot eggs ? ....having some laughs ?
... please note my technique as I space parrotgraphs..
You ask.. are these parrots egg-laying psittacines...
Well, they might be, if only they'd eat up their greens..

Should gold eggs appear with eye-patch on each shell,
Whether Cadbury or Krafty or Rowntrees as well..
I'll send them to Fife on the Pony Express...
Hope they don't arrive with their yolks in a mess...

21 Feb, 2010

 

Ahoy, M'lady Arlene!! The "poetry" rolls off me tongue like melted chocolate, Ahar! Alas, no chocolate left aboard today. :-(
Foil? Reminds me o "Jim" an' his fencin' lessons (really!). An' - as for real gold eggs - I still as some gold spraypaint left from Xmas. :-))X

21 Feb, 2010

 

~your parrots are precious and heroes to boot~
~no one will steal them and make off with the loot.
with Conker and Truffle to guard them and bark
no burglar would dare venture near after dark~
so take heart and let us all be of good cheer
with luck won't be long before Spring doth appear!
~I hope!

21 Feb, 2010

 

Yay... three cheers for Arlene... puts all into focus...
But mustn't forget my guard-budgie called Crocus...
It looks like the FPPs plans are awry...
Yes, let's hope the glories of springtime are nigh. :o)

21 Feb, 2010

 

I doesn't want your parrots - wot's an "attic? I request!
Is it, per'aps, summat like a crow's nest?
An' - please - M'lady! 'tis awfully obscene
to spit when pronouncin' the word "psittacine"!
Me own parrot's tot'lly ruined me left collar,
(dry-cleanin's no option when you're on your last dollar).
Be all means send 'em by pony or ass.
As for parrotgraphs, excuse me, you're top o' the class.
Ye can send 'em to Fife, Caribbean or Penzance!
But, bein' a pirate, me life's one merry dance.
Yolks may be golden, but what o' the whites?
Quite frankly, my Dear, they give me the sh....frights!

I as a spring in me step, too!! Bit like a divingboard, or a long walk off a short plank?

21 Feb, 2010

 

lol david and arlene :o)

21 Feb, 2010

 

A land-lubber's 'attic' is what you call 'loft'..
And do you like golden eggs hard-boiled or soft ?
Seems cooked would be better to cope with the trip..
Or would you prefer to collect them by ship ?

21 Feb, 2010

 

Hi Joanella~we will be next appearing as the verse writing trio for next years pantos at a venue near you!
we have obviously missed our vocation~
he's behind you~oh no he isn't~oh yes he is!!!!

21 Feb, 2010

 

"Aloft" ye say, Terra, makes sense, now, to me!
A sailor goes to sea to see wot 'e can see.
'ard boiled would be best, wi' leftovers, in case,
the 'FPP's 'ave to get "egg on their face""!

21 Feb, 2010

 

I'm cream-crackered now...
No more can I write..
I wish you good cheer...
God Bless... and goodnight...:o)

21 Feb, 2010

 

Brill------- ;0) ) ) ) )

I was going to say 'avast me hearties'( the only piratespeak I know) until I found ---

Talk like a pirate day--- really--- its in september David put the phrase into google-- you'll see-- and avast means stop and I diddnt mean that at all!

22 Feb, 2010

 

...Hi Pam...
Seems we might need a "Don't Talk Like A Pirate Day"
.....or week.... or year... Lol... ;o)

22 Feb, 2010

 

Lol ;0)

22 Feb, 2010

 

Brilliant Tt, congratulations to you and all other poetry contributors. I don't know how I missed this yesterday 8~/ This pic is so funny and going straight to favourites. Thanks :-))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Thanks, Bornagain... How is your weather ?
It's snowing again today...
...even more than when I took this photo yesterday !

22 Feb, 2010

 

we're ok here just very cold!

22 Feb, 2010

 

The snow is gradually going now, all roads are clear it's mainly on lawns and fields, but it still feels cold. Yesterday it was rather sunny here, then we had hail! We must have a lovely spring and summer to make up for all this surely?

22 Feb, 2010

 

Yes.... we really need some warm, dry weather ! :o)

22 Feb, 2010

 

I've eaten loads and loads of chocs...
But my chocolatey treats come in writers blocks:-)

22 Feb, 2010

 

Ahoy there, Pamq, me 'eartie!! Thank ye kindly for the pointer to talkin' loik a poirate. They just can't be serious? Can they? :-)

22 Feb, 2010
