Stopping By Tribecca On A Snowy Evening!!!


Whose diet these are I think I know.
His Chemist is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch my mouth fill up with chow.
My little tummy must think it queer
To stop without a weighing scales near
Between the Humphries wine lake
The darkest evening of the year (21st of December).
I will give my dieting rules a shake
To ask myself there is some mistake.
The only other nights out I keep
Out of the wine and away from flake.
Humphries is lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And stones to go before I eat ,
And stones to go before I eat

[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=+1]Twas The Month After Christmas[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Twas the month after Christmas and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste.
All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt---
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore---
But isn't that what January is for?
[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
[/FONT]​

Hi Bettyboo,

Not sure why:rolleyes:

But if you do a quote and redo the spaces in it and preview it before you post it you will see if it is working the way you want...remove the quotes boxes at the star and the end.

Love Mini xxx
