Phone’s ringing, where’s it gone? Ah, there it is … hello…

Hi, Ron, it’s me!

Oh, hi John.

Where are you going for Christmas Ron?

Gone John.

Gone already?

No, going … going to Gone.

You sound like an auctioneer Ron! Seriously, where are you going?

I told you John, Gone.

Right, start again. Where …  are … you … going  … for … Christmas?

Like … I … said… Gone!

Okay Ron, can I speak to Con?

Con’s already gone, John.

Wondering if she had any of those thingamajigs left.

Sorry, all gone John … hello … hello… oh, now John’s gone.

    Dear Keith,

    Reminds me of the Abbott & Costello routine, so funny and just right for the prompt picture. Cute holiday froggies!

    Great take on “who’s on first?”. 🙂 I like the rhythmic rhyming. Merry Christmas!

    Just as well Ron wasn’t standing next to John or he’s have been a goner.
    That’s a tour de force, Keith.

    One sec, so Con’s gone to Gone, and Ron’s going to Gone… maybe John should go to Gone too . Then they’ll all be gone to Gone 🙂
