Log Cabin Chronicles

From the mouths of babes

POSTED 11.06.01

A friend passed this on. She was told it is the result of a first grade teacher asking her young charges to complete a number of adages. Who knows if this is true? No matter, I found them enjoyable.

Better to be safe than punch a 5th grader

Never underestimate the power of termites

You can lead a horse to water but how?

Don't bite the hand that looks dirty

No news is impossible

A miss is as good as a Mr.

You can't teach an old dog new math

If you lie down with dogs, you'll stink in the morning

Love all, trust me

The pen is mightier than the pigs

An idle mind is the best way to relax

Where there's smoke there's pollution

Happy the bride who gets all the presents

A penny saved is not much

Two's company, three's the Musketeers

Don't put off till tomorrow what you put on to go to bed

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and you have to blow your nose

None are so blind as Stevie Wonder

Children should be seen and not spanked or grounded

If at first you don't succeed get new batteries

You get out of something what you see pictured on the box

When the blind leadeth the blind get out of the way

Better late than pregnant
