Good to see you on this back to work Monday, September 21, 2015. I think nearly anyone who has ever perused any of my writings know that I am a fan of colorful sayings, quips, adages, and clever axioms. They may not be that big of a deal to you but I enjoy reading them and as is my wont using them as a way of communicating. When someone decides to accept your invitation for them to tag along they might just come up with something like this: "Might as well. Can’t dance, never could sing, and it’s too wet to plow." When expressing his opinion on one particular fellow's honesty it might come out like this: "He knows more ways to take your money than a roomful of lawyers." On the other hand if someone wanted to champion their own truthfulness, this might be an appropriate description: "If I say a hen dips snuff, you can look under her wing for the can." Here's how a drought might be explained: "So dry the Baptists are sprinkling, the Methodists are spitting, and the Catholics are giving rain checks." In talking about a fellow who might be light in the sophistication area, it could be said: "He’s so country he thinks a seven-course meal is a possum and a six-pack." These were a few I had not seen in a while so I thought I would share them to get us up and running today. I located them on a listing of colorful Texas sayings on the internet. There are plenty on the list that I grew up hearing over there across the Sabine River, you know, some say that river divides up between good versus great football teams. I'll let you think about that one and come up with your own saying. Here's one you might recognize: Geaux Tigers!
