All Thum,bs

I cannot ty pe, my thum,b is big

It acts ju st like a woodenn peg.

Now spaces come and space s show

Exactly where they sh ouldn’t go.

A careles step on ice an snow

Had sent me to the ones who know

That bandages s o big and strong

Must couch my thum,b for far too long.

Now ma imed and bound, I type for thee

As one explorer sa iled the sea:

“Columbus method,” my dad said,

“Find a key, and onn it land.”

The words now stumble off the ke ys,

And so ’twill be for many days.

Forgive me, all , who read my stuff.

I fear the road will b e quite rough.

    Sorry to hear about your thumb. Hope it heals quickly and without much pain. You never really appreciate how often you use your thumb, until you can’t!

    Dear Paul, I sympathize since I am currently waiting for my right arm to heal. Being very right handed. My left hand is always having to learn new things to do! Kris

    Hi Paul, Sorry, I got a chuckle from this one. As Keith would say, don’t laugh at another’s misfortune. Sorry you have a big bandage on your thumb.😢 Merry Christmas to you and Karisse. Cheri Troyer
