Old Wives' Tales

You know - I've been thinking about all of these sayings and tales my mom has and how true they are. Especially now - they are VERY true to life. Thought I'd share a few of my favorites:

1) Whatever can go wrong, usually will. (I know this one - especially since I had to replace four tires on my car yesterday. I must have ran over something on the highway that blew one out and sliced the other. That was a great way to start my morning.)

2) It takes a friend and an enemy to hurt you. The enemy to do it and the friend to tell you about it. (Yes - but then they both are no longer friends.)

3) Throw a dog a bone and he'll bury you with it. (Pretty self-explanatory. I won't be throwing bones any more.)

4) Buy someone for what they're worth and sell them for what they think they're worth. (We refer to it as the "Diana Ross Syndrome". Ha!)

Your mom was a wise woman (but I do hope she had some cheerful sayings also, lol!!!).

If it makes your day ANY brighter, I was at Simply Scrapbooks in Dayton yesterday, and I found some of your new stuff there!!! Yay! When I took my coasters and paper up to the register, the cashier said, "oh, these are so cute!" I said, "they sure are, and I'm so glad that you are carrying them!" Right by the front door with all the latest displays, too.
