Famous Catholic author Ronda Chervin is in town for a visit, and when I offered her a ride on my bike–adventuresome soul that she is–she accepted. The outing prompted this limerick from noted local poet, former Lutheran pastor and budding author Richard Ballard.

There once was a philosopher name Ronda
Who rode on the back of a Honda
As her hair went flying
She started crying,
“hogs I’m really quite fonda.”
