Subject: RE: I'm Rubber . You're Glue: Children's Rhymes
Guest, Deana Ashley, thank you for sharing those examples of children's rhymes.

I've been working on a project of collecting versions of various rhymes and trying to find early examples & sources for those rhymes. And I admit that I've been slacking on that project. However, the examples that you shared {whose versions I've not seen exactly that way}-particularly "Down by the river"; "Eenie Meanie Cessalini"; "Magdelina Hagdelina Ooka talk walka talk ohka mohka poka" helped to get me over that "editor's slump" {which I guess is similar to "writer's slump"}.

I very much appreciate that.
