My Clerihew

Randy Seaver has posted the SNGF (Saturday Night Genealogy Fun) for this evening and I have chosen to participate. Here are instructions, per Randy~

"Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Write a Genealogy Clerihew (and what is a "clerihew" you ask? See Jim Smith's post today for more details and his clerihew (briefly, a clerihew is a four-line irregular poem or verse that follows an AABB rhyme scheme. It is named for the birthday of Edmund Clerihew Bentley the inventor, aka writer, aka poet."). If you're feeling especially creative, write two or more!

2) Show us your genealogy clerihew in a blog post of your own, in a comment on this blog post, or in a Facebook comment or update. C'mon, dazzle your readers and friends with your poetry and creativeness."

So without further ado, here is my Clerihew~   

Uncovering my ancestors, there are a few
This is a favorite thing I like to do
If I could put off cooking and cleaning
I'd spend my time doing something with meaning!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
