Keep your powder dry.

The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
 

Keep your corn cobs dry.


Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots.
 

When solving problems, dig at the roots instead of just hacking at the leaves.

                  there are times I completely amaze my family, friends and myself with some things I do
                 
                   then there are times I try to get out of the car with the seat belt still around me

Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
 in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
 as long as ever you can.

A couple of old sayings here  are ,
  He was ,  In like Flynn!.
Gone, faster than a dogs dinner!.
Quicker  than a Goanna up a Gum tree!.
 My wife always  told me early on in the piece if she ever wanted my opinion on anything then she would give it to me!  So I learned that a Happy Wife means a Happy Life .
            Regards Pete

Do you know the meaning of  "sour grapes" ?


Sour Grapes

In an old fable by Aesop, a hungry fox noticed a bunch of juicy grapes hanging from a vine.
 After several failed attempts to reach the grapes, the fox gave up and insisted that he didn't want them anyway because they were probably sour.

Nowadays when somebody expresses sour grapes, it means that they put down something simply because they can't have it.

The four seasons are salt, pepper, mustard and vinegar.

 Men are like a fine wine. 
They all start out like grapes, and it's our job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something you'd want to have dinner with. ;D

Your nose is the scenter of your face.

Winter does not arrive until the ice is in the compost heap. 
Spring does not arrive until the ice is out of the compost heap.

Heart Beet
 Do you carrot at all for me?
 My heart beets for you,
 With your turnip nose
 And your radish face.
 You are a peach.
 If we cantaloupe,
 Lettuce marry.
 Weed make a swell pear.

Be good to your friends-- with out them you would be a total stranger.

Time may be a great healer but it ain't no beauty specialist.

I remember this because we had driven from Ouray down to Durango in mostly rain but with some sleet in one place. Jewel wanted to rest awhile so I went for a walk around town. I came in & set the tripod & camera up, set the camera  timer for several minutes then started picking at Jewel.

      Just because she has one eye closed doesn't mean she's asleep--neither does it mean she's awake with one eye open.


I think she might have meant go circle the block again real slow
