pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That year turned into five! Now he is home and training to become a physics teacher. This is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.

A cheeky young drake called Chris
World-famous for taking the p*ss
Has placed on his head
An apple, it's said
Let's hope the archers don't miss!

While ducklings were snoring and napping
The ducks were flapping and quacking
For there in their house
Was Little Blue Mouse
Re-booting her laptop and tapping.

For more fun and games with limericks go to - you are sure to have a chuckle.


  1. Ooops, slight correction to that URL:

  2. It's nice that you and LBM are across the pond and several hours ahead of me. Every morning I wake up to a fresh batch of limericks that I enjoy with my tea and toast! :)

  3. Offend? These are the cleanest limericks I've ever read. I didn't know it could be done. I only know one about a man from Nantucket and a man from Grant's Pass. No wait. I do know a clean one: A fly and a flea in a flue, Were caught so what could they do? Let us fly said the flea. Let us flee said the fly. So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

  4. Hi Knatolee, That'll teach me to dash off a post just as I am about to go out for the day! I've corrected the URL! I'm glad they're still giving you a laugh.

    Hi Mitch, They are pretty clean ones - the title was a bit of a tease, sorry! I couldn't resist. My brain will get fed up eventually, but at the moment it just keeps churning limericks out. I love the fly and the flea one, I'll have to tell that to my grandson. x

  5. Yes, I'm doing quite a bit of tapping! Writing limericks can be quite addictive.

  6. We are going to have a special category for rude limericks! :)

  7. Knatolee: Phew! That takes the pressure off! I don't really do rude. ;-)

  8. You!!!!

    You're getting good at this!
