Hi Everyone.
Here are a few more Tongue Twisters from my friend Joy:
(1) The sixth sheik's sixth sheep's sick
(2) Six thick thistle sticks
(3) Whistle for the thistle sister
(4) A tin of mixed biscuits in a mixed biscuit tin
(5) Rick's a cricket cricket
(6) It's an Irish wrist watch
(7) Two tiny orangutan tongues
(8) Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better
(9) The shells she sells are seashore shells I'm sure
(10) The sea ceaseth, and it sufficeth us

Heres a couple of longer Tongue Twisters:
(1) Can you imagine an imaginary menagerie manager imagining managing an imaginary menagerie?
(2) A tutor tried to tutor two flute tooters to toot. - Is it harder to toot or to tutor two tooters to toot?

Now try this:
Ask someone to spell S.H.O.P. three times.
Then ask them: What do you do at a green light?
They will invariably answer: Stop!
The answer is of course Go!

Here's a strange spelling situation:
MACNAB spells McNab
MACBETH spells Macbeth
MACCANN spells McCann
MACHINE spells Machine. Does this make sense to you? It should spell McHine.

Last one for this week:

1 1 was one racehourse.
and 2 2 was one too
1 1 won one race and
and 2 2 won one too

or you could say;

1 1 was 1 racehorse
and 2 2 was 1 2
1 1 1 1 race,
and 2 2 1 1 2.

All the best

You are so welcome John...so love our residents, and spend hours and hours trying to find new and fun stuff for them...they are all so precious...and consider all of them my family! I love to sew and started a sewing club. OWLS (older wiser lovelier souls) our facility has a bazaar in November, bring in local vendors so residents and family can purchase Christmas gifts.Owls will have their own booth....I do all of the sewing, but make it a social event..they love to see the finished products...have made lots of christmas stockings, walker tote bags etc.. all proceeds will go back into our community...I was bringing my own machine..but God love the facility..they bought one for our activity department, after the bazaar will continue to sew and have a drawing for the project completed for residents attending...so much fun!
