Limerick Time | GBGV

March 9, 2013

limerick inspiration

My friend Oz the Terrier has taken on the task of writing a limerick a day this month in honor of St. Patrick for friends that submit answers to a few questions on his blog.  He still has some slots open so if you are interested click here to go to the page for entering.

One other interesting fact is that my mom actually spent a night in Limerick, Ireland. Back when she was flight attendant (that was like eons ago, even before my sister Katie was born and she is almost 11) they had some type of emergency and had to land in Limerick but because of rest rules, they could not continue on and had to spend the night.  She said it was really a quaint place and there were lots of long haired Highland cows by where they stayed. She loves those cows, says they are so cute…I think that cows just smell but that is my opinion and I don’t really have any cow friends so I don’t know much about them. Katie got chased by herd of cows when she lived in Germany so she has a serious fear of them, I am not afraid, just think they are smelly.

There was a GBGV named Emma

who thought she was some kind of gem-a.

She howls out a warning

at four every morning

which causes quite a dilemma.

      I do enjoy an early morning howl every week or too…gets everyone up and going in the house 😉

    That’s awesome!

    Love your Limerick Emma! You are so creative 🙂

    • March 9, 2013 09:26

      Maybe I should have said Oz is creative but then if you weren’t such an awesome GBGV, he wouldn’t have had anything to write about! Just sayin’!!!!

        🙂 Just want to make sure the correct dog gets the credit.

    • March 9, 2013 09:27

      Actually Oz wrote it for me 🙂

    Very cute! Emma, your Mom must have had an exciting life as a stewardess! Happy Saturday!

      She said it was kind of an extension of college and a big party all rolled into one. She is glad she got out of it when she did but she has had lots of experiences for sure!

    You are a gem-a for sure!!!

  8. March 9, 2013 15:31

    Yes you are a gem Emma…is the howling just an “aroooo of joy”?

    • March 10, 2013 06:26

      Usually it is for no real reason except to wake everybody up 😉

    Great fun Emma!

    Love your limerick, Oz is so clever!

  11. March 9, 2013 22:14

    That limerick is perfect for you! How cool that your mom got to visit Ireland, too. Mom says that’s a place she’s always wanted to visit!


    • March 10, 2013 06:27

      It was just a short visit but she said it was interesting there.

    Roooo ooo what a pawsome limerick! *waggy tail*
    My human saw four little doggies just like you, yesterday at Crufts. None of them were as pretty as you though *waggy tail*

      Unfortunately, the PBGV won the hound ground and not the GBGV but on the other hand at least the GBGV was participating. Here we are still not at the shows.

  13. March 10, 2013 07:45

    That was so howling good!!!

    Very cool limerick Emma! You might think cows are just smelly, but they give us good stuff – like ice cream – so they are not ALL bad. Poor Katie though…how scary to get chased by one! If I were her I’d boycott Ice Cream. Well, not really, but maybe I’d eat it less often. 🙂

    • March 10, 2013 10:15

      Yep, it was a whole herd that chased her and mom but mom is not scared, just Katie. Mom actually really likes cows 🙂
