Actually, protocol on this game is to continue BOTH limericks :D
For the limerick that began with:

There once was a man from the coast,

Deccydiva offers:

Who had an unusual boast;

And donroc offers:

Of California where he would boast

Nymtoc continues with:

He claimed he had wings

and Woodsie's offering leaves us with:

There once was a man from the coast,
Of California where he would boast
He claimed he had wings
Among other things

But donroc's version is left up in the air. Therefore I shall reply to that one with:

There once was a man from the coast,
Of California where he would boast
Of his world-famous wines
Now finish the first version if you like, or just add to the second, or do both...but don't begin another until the second version is also complete. Thanks :D
