There Once Was A Family From Kent

So poor they could not make the rent.
They wandered the land,
In California gold panned.
Now a fortune the descendants have spent.

I wondered what you'd come up with for a poster fM. It looks terrific!

I know I don't thank you often enough for all you do to promote the COG but please know that I am very, very grateful and appreciative!

I don't thank you enough. I owe my very online existence to the COG.

And I love you, the COG, and my online existence.

fM, the poster for this challenge is FAB! They keep getting better and better! I love this one enough that I might even try writing poetry. GULP. Or, I may implode trying! LOL

A reason to rhyme... love it! We know a "certain someone" who will surely be telling family stories in meter.

Great topic, fM.
