Many thanks to all who participated in Mega Memory Month on any level!Most MMM friends were working on memorizing a passage from the Bible, but a few chose music or poetry.My parents have always impressed me with their lifelong retention of long passages of poetry. We talked about that the other day when they were over for a visit and I was making my little MMM Celebration video.I asked Mom if she’d be willing to recite “The Owl and the Pussycat” for me to record and share with my blog readers, and she readily agreed.So, as a postscript to October 2008’s MMM, I bring you a spontaneous recitation of “The Owl and the Pussycat.”[youtube= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kEd0zGYu6A](Now that I know how to upload to YouTube, my blog may never be the same.)

One of my favorite kids books!
Amazing! Scintillating! Absolutely brilliant! And they say old people can’t remember anything. 😀
I see the pussycat on her lapel, but where’s the owl?
This is great, Annie. As you know, your mom is one of my favorite people!!!!
Thanks to your mom for agreeing to recite this delightful poem.
I haven’t memorized a single one of my songs…I got carried away in the frenzy of Halloween preparations…but I haven’t given up. Thanks for all the inspiration!
