"Mares eat oats and does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy
A kid will eat ivy too, wouldn't you?"

I remember like it was yesterday my Mother and her Tridelta sorority sister, Aunt Erma, singing that song for me and Aunt Erma's son, Joey, on a hot summer morning, to demonstrate to us that every generation has had it's share of songs with nonsense lyrics. :) Not long after that, appropos of nothing, my Father was talking one night at dinner with our minister and when my Father colloquially mentioned "... that is like someone pulling the ivy down from the walls of Yale" I piped up and suggested they use sheep to eat the ivy. Rev. Hudson thought that was so hilarious he incorporated it into his sermon the next Sunday, using the theme based on Christ's words to the Disciples, "Hear, hear, but do not understand..." Fortunately he only alluded to me as "a child of this parish" and did not name me. Unfortunately Joey knew the whole story and told everyone he knew. I was 8 and he was 7, but he knew quite a few people. It was a close neighborhood. :)
