A re-post of a poem we posted last year, when we had just started and no one was following us. Requested by the ever supportive John Malone.
My Hat Collection Picking hats for my collection My choice has been meticulous I only wear them one at once Or I would look ridiculous. I'll start of with my baseball caps I've collected five of these Two were from sunny Australia Where shade can hit forty degrees. There's a cap from Canada's Bamf Embroidered with proud Maple Leaf Whilst one from our amis in France Has the Eiffel Tower motif. My golfing favourite was purchased At the British Open event Where Darren Clarke beat all the others In sunshine, at Sandwich, in Kent. So cheap is an old knotted hanky It's one that I almost forgot The sun can not get at my head If it's cloudy, I fill it with snot. A real Aussie bush hat from Perth Is just the sartorial ticket And a foldable one from Tasmania Perfect for watching the cricket. My fedora from M and S I sport with an elegant style And wearing my chequered flat cap I look like the Duke of Argyle. In winter the ear flaps come down When cold snow and hail starts to fall But my scary old balaclava I find is the warmest of all.

Honourable Order of Best Blog Owners
This is the award which I launched last month. It goes to the owner of the blog who has kept me amused and entertained over the previous few weeks. It doesn’t involve the winner in doing anything, or answering daft questions. It’s just my way of saying a little thank you for putting a smile on my face, and keeping your blog interesting.
The winner of the inaugural award was Mr Bump. This month, the winner is spwilcen. Visit their blog at https://spwilcenwrites.com/
He claims to be a rambling old man (who isn’t), but his posts will amuse you.

Poet Don There's a poet, Don, who lives in Oz Who writes a little blog Which often stars his cat And occasionally his dog. His poetry is funny His wit it bewitches And some of his comments Will leave you in stitches. He should have more follows But he's been overlooked So give Don a try And I bet you'll be hooked. Poet Don lives in Australia, and publishes three or four short posts every day. He's one of the first bloggers I started following on a regular basis because some of his stuff is really funny. I think he should have a lot more followers. Please give him a try and see if you agree. The link is; https://donmatthewspoetry.com (This is an unsolicited personal recommendation)

Today’s poem is a naughty limerick by Hobbo, called ‘Fishing’. You’ll find it in the Saucy Corner.
If you don’t like the rude stuff, check out the monologue section. Remember ‘Albert and the lion’ written by Marriott Edgar, and performed by the great Stanley Holloway. These poems are a tribute to him. ‘Where there’s a will.’ is a good one to start with.
