Love in 160 Bites, Part 4

(Our story till now)

There was this old dude from Duluth
A bit grozzled and long in the tooth
He looked in the mirror
And shuddered in horror
And thought: when did I lose all my youth?

he old guy decided to travel
Before all of his parts came unraveled
So off to the Keys he went
And he got a small cottage to rent
Then to the nude beach he ambled.

There came an old gal from Chicago
Who met the old boy in Key Largo.
On the beach thy were nude
But neither were prudes,
And their eyes had gone south a while ago. 
 And now, this week's installment:

Their attraction was quick and immense

In her eyes he was handsome and intense

So when he offered his arm

Plus all of his charm

She was smitten and had no defense.

  1. Bravo!! What a great part four. I really admire how you have taken a tough challenge - writing a story in only 160 characters - and added the limerick degree of difficulty. I know the judges cards will mark this quite high. Have a solid Sunday.

  2. Thanks, MM. Had you charged me with this task, I couldn't have done it. But somehow it was just "there." And I had great fun going with it.

  3. smiles. ah, the first touch of love...
    nice 160.

  4. And it can happen at any age! So well done, Patti.

  5. Another great instalment! I look forward to the next.

  6. Love this installment! Great 160!!

  7. wow,
    you are gifted in romantic writing!
    loved it.

  8. How very cute and intense!
    you have a keen limerick sense!
    my exposure was crude
    what you'd call downright rude
    and not rated for blogging while nude.

    thanks for visiting!

  9. Thanks for visiting, Everyone.

    Diane: Good one! Blogging while nude might make for interesting posts. You first.

  10. Brevity and wit- a love story in small bites. This made me smile, Patti.
