19/11/08 [66]: limerick competition

November 19, 2008 at 10:54 am 5 comments

% swum:    
% days:    
totals: 66 days, 1176 lengths, 240 lengths to go, £500.00 sponsorship

I’ve had a bad start to this week by not swimming on Monday and Tuesday, but today I was back in the pool and added another 40 lengths to the total. In some ways the challenge has become much harder now that I have nearly completed the full distance because it is more difficult to get motivated and get out of the house and up to the pool – a bit of mind over matter is what is needed now.

Today I thought I would not write much of an entry but instead test my readers (as if there are some…) by setting you a limerick competition. Here are the first two lines – now it’s your turn to finish the limerick off in suitable fashion. Just send me your ending by leaving a comment on this entry. All entries that can be published will be and if there are any that I really like you might even get a prize…

A fellow from Plymouth called Tim
Decided to go for a swim

Over to you…

    A fellow from Plymouth called Tim
    Decided to go for a swim
    He didn’t find it easy
    So on his blog he was cheesy
    And found himself scarily slim!

    By Alice (Your wonderful daughter!!!!!)
    Well done for persivering!

    A fellow from Plymouth called Tim
    Decided to go for a swim
    He swam up and down
    So he would not drown
    An Award should be given to him

    From Keith – your wonderful daughter’s Grandad

    A fellow from Plymouth called Tim
    Decided to go for a swim
    Football was forgotten
    Which made him feel rotten
    But at heart he’s still a Pilgrim

    Ann – who’s just a Canary

    Here’s one from my Mum who has struggled to get “Leave a Comment” to work…

    A fellow from Plymouth called Tim
    Decided to go for a swim
    For ASPIRE he crossed the pool waters
    Sponsored by students, friends and Daughters
    Well Done to that fellow called Tim

    Two more entries, this time from Roger S of RS Aqua Ltd (a regular reader of this blog and the man responsible for the biggest single donation to my sponsorship fund):

    A fellow from Plymouth called Tim
    Decided to go for a swim
    The muscles just grew
    And before he knew
    Our Tim became trim and slim

    A fellow from Plymouth called Tim
    Decided to go for a swim
    As if from a wish
    Tim turned to fish
    And swam the Channel with vim
