"Down the Drain with Jane"
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 • Posted April 5, 2014

We say a lot of things, that just don’t make sense. Like: That scared me half to death! Isn’t that like saying, your half pregnant? While there are a whole bunch of good things that we say to get a point over. Z. says (sometimes) “You smell better than a wet puppy!” While I love the smell of puppy breath, is smelling like a wet puppy like that? However, it beats smelling like a Billy goat!

People will say, “You’ve lost a ton of weight!” Well, I didn’t weigh a ton to start with. However, you must have thought I did, to say that!!!! Really, need to watch what folk talk we use! But, then, it’s okay. Because, I know what you were saying and I’ve often said the same things. It’s just the way we say things in the Hill Country!

P.S. According to GRANDPA’S COUNTRY WISDOM: “ The bull is half the secret of building a better herd.”
