Me blog twice in one day?  Unheard of, but I’ve just found out it is National Limerick Day and I can’r resist.  Actually I am dwelling on what to do for kindness week #RevofKindness.  I’m supposed to be kind to me.  My goal is to think of ten good things about myself.  That was the prompt that led to the content of this limerick.

I better love my neighbor more than I love me!

By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
