Thanks so VERY much for writing all of it, June!!


good morning all, a very odd rhyme but harmless it illustrated why the dog looked different from the usual whinging one


My, that was a smart dog.......he even raised himself from the dead!!!!! And. and look how smart he was after that!! Thanks heaps, June.


Oh yes, the things we learn on jigidi!..........


I'm not sure which I like better, the puzzle or the rhyme!!! I never saw that long version before!! Thanks June!! :)))

All's well that ends well... :-)))


I've never seen all of that before! Thanks, June--he was quite an accomplished fellow, and she was indeed a wonderful homemaker after all! :-)))


OK folks here's the full version where she made up for it

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard,
To give the poor dog a bone;
When she came there,
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.

She went to the baker's
To buy him some bread;
When she came back
The dog was dead!

She went to the undertaker's
To buy him a coffin;
When she came back
The dog was laughing.

She took a clean dish
to get him some tripe;
When she came back
He was smoking his pipe.

She went to the alehouse
To get him some beer;
When she came back
The dog sat in a chair.

She went to the tavern
For white wine and red;
When she came back
The dog stood on his head.

She went to the fruiterer's
To buy him some fruit;
When she came back
He was playing the flute.

She went to the tailor's
To buy him a coat;
When she came back
He was riding a goat.

She went to the hatter's
To buy him a hat;
When she came back
He was feeding her cat.

She went to the barber's
To buy him a wig
When she came back
He was dancing a jig.

She went to the cobbler's
To buy him some shoes;
When she came back
He was reading the news.

She went to the sempstress
To buy him some linen;
When she came back
The dog was spinning.

She went to the hosier's
To buy him some hose;
When she came back
He was dressed in his clothes.

The Dame made a curtsy,
The dog made a bow;
The Dame said, Your servant;
The dog said, Bow-wow.

This wonderful dog
Was Dame Hubbard's delight,
He could read, he could dance,
He could sing, he could write;
She gave him rich dainties
Whenever he fed,
And erected this monument
When he was dead.


??????? - anything I have missed???? Thanks so very much June!!


I've heard some unflattering stories about her inability to keep her home provisioned.....


Wonder if she's got anything to eat?.............
