We talking French Lick, IN? I went by there many years ago when I lived in Indiana. I was an adopted Hoosier then, like you are now, Geoff. LOL

Indiana has not adopted me; I reside within its borders and nothing more. I didn't vote for T. Rump.

We had a wonderful time in good old French Lick . If I ever win the limerick game, maybe I'll use that for a place.

It is named that because it was a French settlement with salt licks. The city originally was famous because of all the springs. Now it is more famous because of Larry Bird.

"French Lick," did you say? Hmm... Allow me to share an entry from The OEDILF:

Indiana has a town called French Lick
Where a star was born, nicknamed "The Hick."
People there will play keno
At the local casino,
And of oral sex jokes they are sick.

(NBA superstar Larry Bird was known as "The Hick from French Lick.")

The author of this limerick and this post is longtime WordCraft poster (though also, admittedly, longtime absent poster) Chris J. Strolin. Through some sort of screw-up, undoubtedly one of my own, my screen name has been distilled down to "CJS" though I wouldn't mind becoming "Chris J. Strolin" again.

Wooo-hooo! Welcome back. I have been absent from Oedilf for far too long. My term ends next week and I have a couple of weeks before I am around and about on holiday (Beijing and Taiwan actually). I will make a visit to the old place and a limerick or two a priority. I trust the project is still going strong.

Oh, me too, Bob! I'll take a look, too, though I've probably forgotten my password by now. I imagine they've gotten way more sophisticated.

Here's a head's up for both of you: don't sign in before the end of June. Our special project for the month of July will be the workshopping of limericks written by inactive OEDILFers who sign back on to the site during that month. An email with details will be coming your way shortly.
