Do You Believe Old Adages?
I've mentioned this one here before and I do want to believe it. I used to believe it because it seemed to come true but other times it didn't. The sage bushes in our area are in full bloom. There is not room for another bloom and they are beautiful. The adage is when they bloom it will rain in two or three days so in that case it should come a down pour. Even the sqraggly one in my front yard has some blooms. I didn't use my head when I planted it. It gets too much shade and water from the air conditioner. Sage is a native plant and loves the hot sun and the dry weather. John just came in from watching the weather man on TV and he says it isn't going to rain for seven days. Who shall I believe? The sage or the weatherman? Another adage a deceased friend of mine used to always repeat to me. You can tell a man by his shoes. So I'm watching the man who wants to be our new preacher. His shoes are always perfect. In fact I look down a lot and watch shoes. Maybe I shouldn't because I have to wear Earth shoes or tennis shoes, something with support. Maybe I wouldn't like people to judge me that I don't wear pretty little feminine shoes. What do you think? Any adages you like or believe?
