Orvus. by Gillian Murray

OT - another groaner by Bruce Fletcher
Paddy's racing snail was not winning races anymore, so he decided to take its shell off to reduce its weight and make it more aerodynamic. It didn't work, if anything it made it more sluggish.

Keep After Me, Please.... by Karen C
I need someone to nag. I found the perfect b'day gift, but I only have about 3 weeks to get it done. Took 3 days after bringing it home from Michaels to even get the first stitch in and then I only got about 2 dozen stitches done before I flitted off to something else. --
