Fun Ditties.

The elephant is a petite bird
It flies from bough to bough
Nests in a tall sturdy gum tree
And moos like an old cow.

Mary had a little lamb
You've heard it all before
But did ya know that
Mary passed her dinner plate
And had a tiny bit more.

I eat my peas with honey
I've done it all my life
It makes the peas
Taste kinda funny
But it keeps 'em
on the knife.

I liked the one about Mary's lamb the best.

Polly put the kettle on,
And strangely enough it fitted her.

Ha Ha @ Elephant's Child.

I remember that last one, it was in a blank recipe notebook I bought years ago. There were lines to write your recipe on and a food related image and quote at the bottom of every page. I filled it with best loved family recipes and my kids have it now.
