Gran

This picture was taken on Gran's last trip to
South Africa before she passed away. 
My Gran had some great sayings and she used them often!  Its something that I remember vividly about her - Gran had a saying for everything...

Here are some I remember her using often and they have been passed down to my mum and now to my sister and I.  They are firmly planted in my memory. 
  • Change is as good as a Holiday
  • Pink to Make the Boys Wink
  • Be sure your sins will find you out.
  • Better late than never
  • You can't make honey outta dog shite
  • Cut your cloth accordingly
  • Many hands make light work
  • Count your blessings
  • Don't cry over spilt milk
  • The best laid plans o' mice 'n men gang af the glee
  • Feed a cold Starve a Fever
  • Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names can never hurt me

Do you have any sayings that have been passed down in your family?  What are your sayings that you use regularly...

Hi, thanks for dropping a line on my last post, I fully agree with you on the heels, whether bare or stockings, heels just happen to do the trick, stiletto heels that is.

I love to use the afrikaans term "kry vir jou, mammie het gebak" Loosely translated it says, grab a hand full, mommy baked them. It means: you caused this shit, face the music.

But then, I also love the famous words of Clint Eastwood, "go ahead, make my day!"

Steven Segal's words, "fuck off and die!"
Cruel, yes I know, and I try hard not to be, but this country has taught me to have a slight vigilante streak in me.

The mystery girl? Gwyneth Paltrow. Difficult one I know. Meg was a great guess though.

Thanks for following, and hope to see you visit often.

Enjoy what is left of the week.

Colin.
