Still Another Monday

Saying for the Day-Some things are better left untranslated.

It is “ leave a comment Monday” and I am still hard at work translating old sayings into sayings for the internet world .
1. He is afraid of his own comment
2. He is as dependable as spam in a comment slot
3. He thinks it is a good comment if he makes it
4. He who can comments, he who cannot just reads

5. He who hesitates leaves no comment
6. He will argue with another’s comment
7. He/she is a day late and a comment short
8. He/she is feeling their comments

9. He/she is wiser than an old comment
10. Hear no comment-see no comment-speak no comment
11. Heart as big as all comments
12. Hell hath no furry like a blog scorned


13. Ho-Ho-Ho- and a bunch of comments
14 Holy comment
15. Home is where the comment is
16. Honest as his comment is long

17. Commenting is the best policy
18. Hotter than the hottest comment
19. How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless comment
20. I am a simple man with simple comments

Now, of course, I need some comments. Please leave a comment.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, poltergeists do what they do, and life goes on as usual-There was no school in Pigeon Falls today to give people who went visiting on the holiday time to get back. So Wink’s Woods and Kivi & Maki had special sales . They were trying to get rid of their winter stuff before spring really does come. Despite the snow ,spring will happen one of these days. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and the snow was melting. There were lots of people downtown. That’s when it started. Suddenly there was the dragon breathing fire and heading straight for Nancy’s shop. Suddenly it stopped dead in mid-flight as if held by an invisible force. It spewed forth fire and flapped its wings but it went nowhere. Then it turned and flew to the end of the street and off into the woods and to whatever place it goes. Tommy UK , who was watching from in front of Eino’s said that he could feel what the dragon was saying but he wasn’t aloud to use words like that. It seemed people had witnessed the first great battle between the poltergeist and the dragon. The dragon being the big loser and not a happy one.
After that the teacups formed a big V on Nancy’s counter which stayed all day. People coming in for coffee commented on the battle. It seems that Nancy’s poltergeist is protective of Nancy. Like all good stories the battle grew with telling. The size of the dragons flame increased. The length of the battle increased. They even had one old man get burned, which never happened. Nancy just listened and smiled. Even if it is protective she wishes it would go away and leave her tea cups alone. Tea is not the same served in coffee cups.
Will there be another battle? Will the dragon lose again? Can Tommy UK really hear the dragons thoughts? Will Nancy ever get her tea cups back. And of course, is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?

Today’s Link– Is on hold till we get back from Crystal Falls.
We left Neenah at 10:30 this morning and arrived in Crystal at 3:30. We have cleaned out the back bedroom.Pennie and I and Betty went to Fob's for dinner. I had trouble getting this connection up and running. Now I need a breathing treatment. If I have time I will visit blogs tomorrow. I also can't get my e-mail.

"12. Hell hath no furry like a blog scorned." okay, okay, I'm scared, I'll make a comment!
I never dreamed that you could make so many plays on "comment". Do you keep paper & pen handy in case you think of one? I bet you lie in bed, head spinning, formulating another one!

P.S. I hope that dragon doesn't come to Crystal Falls....

It's better to leave no comment and be thought a fool than to leave a comment and remove all doubt.

Geez, miss a couple of days and things really heat up in Pigeon Falls. Is it wrong to root for the dragon?

Safe travels.
