Renewing Old Sayings

Saying for the day: There is nothing as comfortable as a pair of old shoes.

It is leave a comment Monday. The day on which everyone leaves comments.
To celebrate the day I have renewed ( mangled) some old sayings.
Renewed old sayings now about comments:

1. A comment on the blog is worth two in the head.

2. A day late and a comment short.

3. A comment fit for the gods

4. A fool and his comments are soon parted

5. A friend who comments is a friend indeed

6. A man after my own comments

7. A man is as good as his comment

8. A man is known by the comments he leaves

9. A man of few comments

10. A penny for your comments

11. A poor comment is better than none at all

12. A comment of beauty is a joy forever

13. A time for all comments

14. A wise man listens to his own comments

15. A comment to the wise is sufficient

16 Comments makes the heart grow fonder

17. After the feast comes the comment

18. Alive and commenting

19. All good things come to those who comment

20. All work and no comments makes Jack a dull boy

I feel a need ( honesty in blogging ) to tell you that whenever you see the old sayings these came from you will feel a subconscious need to come to the Fortress and comment. You can overcome this hypnotic suggestion by leaving a comment on this blog today.
Good commenting.

News from Pigeon Falls-the little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and Petrovich is at it again. – Petrovich came into Nancy’s all excited saying he has proof positive that Alexis Grengicoff was a true seer. It seems that Petrovich brought back with him some new driblets that were written in Coptic and that he has translated into English. He has discovered that the first driblet contains the same eighteen words as the word game at Cindra’s blog for the week. This he feels can not be a coincidence. It is as sure as that fat ladies will not be asked to contract for an expensive strip poker game. Or that you will never see a thousand lazy monkey creatures sniffing through the underwear department of the big community department store. You won’t see it even if you dream or if you really wanted to see it. Such wisdom might rub you the wrong way but as long as you have custody of your mental facilities you know it is no coincidence. For once Nancy didn’t know what to say. She promised to look at the Blog of Cindra and Petrovich’s website. She is going to have Tommy TW look too. Perhaps they will look together.
Aside from Petrovich Nancy had a lot of Last Lutheran members stopping in to cry a bit because they are sure that Pastor Marvel will leave them. He has been in Pigeon Falls for so long he is like a pair of old shoes. There might be better and newer ones out there but these are worn in and are comfortable. If he goes he will be missed.

Today's Link-MikeMcgann.org-A blog entry anout comments -Wow! Leave the usual Dr. John in the comment and see if sees it as spam.
Today was a nice day, dull but nice. I blogged, finished a book, watched my soaps, read the Sunday papers, ate a banna split my daughter brought home for me, blogged some more. Okay it wasn't exciting. Now I need a breathing treatment.

I WAS GUNTA PICK OUT MY FAVORITE COMMENT FROM YOUR LIST
... I couldn't decide which I liked best; they're all so good!

It's really cold here, but, at least it's pretty with all the snow. What a perfect winter in Crystal Falls ... enough cold & snow for outdoor sports ... not enough to make me have to go out with the snow scoop!

Isn't anyone doing the church webpage now?

Petrovich must believe that saying about given an infinite amount of time a monkey with a typewriter will eventually type the whole Bible.

"You can overcome this hypnotic suggestion by leaving a comment on this blog today."

I hear and obey.

Aaah Dr John,
sometimes old shoes need to be re-heeled, especially if they are well worn cowboy boots
and old slippers or plimsols and pumps are fine as long as one's big toe does not poke out the front, and they are too threadbare

flipflops and rubber sandals I like best in warm weather (come rain or shine)
and wellies you cannot beat, when its cold or there is mud or snow under your feet.

I have always wished to build a sauna. Do you suppose that cedar wood could be used in place of redwood to equal effect?
Frankly, a once-ayear trip to hot springs does me good. Nice to meet you.

i'm sorry i've missed a few days to visit..life is a mix of bag of goodies..some treats are good and some are jucky. another one of my uncles in miami is now in life support..since the end of last wknd he got really sick..the fam was asked to say goodbye this am and he has had his blessings from the priest..we now wait for him to be disconnected..my mom wants to protect my heart tonight for she told me we would talk tomorrow am..i think it has already happened..
it is so sad to say another goodbye..
in new zealand we ache for James and in miami for Pedro..i do know they will be happier where they go to now but my earthly heart is still silly and sad..

hope you are well..will hope to come and read you soon here.

Comments are like butter
On a stack of pancakes, or
Mashed potato craters with
Margarine lakes.
Ever tasty on a bagel,
Nicely spread on your toast,
They are the pats on your muffin
Smiling because of your post.

Hey Everyone,

I've been trying to figure out a place to start with the acai berry free trial an was wondering if anybody had some opinions on whether or not it works to lose weight? So far this is the only [url=http://acaiberries.weblog.com/acai-berry-free-samples-what-you-get-know-more/]article[/url] I have been able to check out that seemed real for what my goals are. Opinions?
