Happy First Day Of Spring!

The grass is riz,

I wonders where

The flowers is......



Quick.....get my weed-whacker.....

Great find, Dr. Ken.

Ron calls his favourite implement the "weed whacker" and now I wonder just what is going through his mind when he uses it.

Hugs and happy spring!
Hermione

Oh, a Clellan (Axel) Card fan!

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and said -- what's that up in the road. . .a head?

I'm a little too young to have seen the original show, but I am old enough to remember Clancy, Carmen, Willie Ketchem, and of course, the great Casey Jones and Roundhouse Rodney!

By the way, I love your photos and your blog.

Great pic, Dr. Ken, and Happy Vernal Equinox Day to you. I've heard many euphemisms for penis but NEVER weed whacker. I'm so tempted to tell you to plant your seed deep but I'll refrain. *G*

Hermione said...

Oh, my, is THAT what it means?

My face is redder than my bottom. And as for Ron, I thought he meant the garden tool. Oops! I mean...

Sigh. Must be vernal equinox fever!

Radha--Glad to hear it, since that's the primary purpose behind them--i.e., some stuff just for fun.
I take no credit for the poem, however. I remember my mother quoting it way back when I was a wee lad. The short version uses "flowers"--there's a longer version that uses the line,"I wonder where the birdies is". It then goes on to say that the birds are on the wing, and how absurd, I thought the wing was on the bird.
Or something like that.

Hermione--Hmmm. Maybe your behavior needs pruning? :-)
Happy Spring to you, too!

Kim--thanks! Come on back as often as you like.
I remember watching Axel's Tree House (some local programming for kids here in Minnesota), but I don't think the poem came from there. It wouldn't surprise if Clellan Card used it, though!

Michael--git yer mind outta the gutter. :-)
Trust me--it's not a euphemism. (If it was, why would someone have to "get" it for me?)
A lovely lady and a lovely bottom--I meant weed-whacker with the emphasis on the "whacker" (or "whack her") part.

Hermione--don't worry. That's NOT what it means. You may resume your normal coloring.... :-)
Now, what RON means--could be a whole different ballgame....

LOL! I remember Axel's Tree House too! And all the characters Kim mentioned. Childhood memories . . .

Dr. Ken said...

Season--I remember those as well as Axel And His Dog. Carmen the Nurse, Tallulah the cat, Towser the Dog....
I also remember Captain Ken (no relation), and T. N. Tatters, a hobo clown in the spirit of Emmett Kelly....Good times long gone...
