Being true to my my consistent state of tardiness, I'm posting this two days later than planned. The winner of the character/limerick contest is Gzusfreek. Congratualations!

His humor and his bad boy dare
If he approaches I am short of breath
My love for others dying a quick death
I’ve thought of him for a long time
Just how can I make this man mine?
Cupid hit my heart with his arrow
The angel, the man, the pirate Jack Sparrow

Great job! Now, let's all swoon for Jack Sparrow.


  1. I would say having your town hit by a tornado is a good excuse for tardiness :).

    Good poem, Gzusfreek! Love the last line especially.

  2. WoW! I'm so excited Jack Sparrow won! :) Shawna, thank you, this was such a fun post! Thanks Kat!

    How's the clean up? Are many hurting? Still praying for ya!

  3. Greetings from Finland

    I have a oldsmobile just like your fathers and is about to do a paint job, So, is it possible to get the paint code? Because the color of your fathers 442 is about the nicest I have seen on an olds,
    Please contact me on email:

    kind regards
