well-known proverb's...
« on: December 30, 2007, 09:27:03 PM »
 ;D You gotta love it!  This speaks for itself!
 
 
A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.  It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you.  While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!
 
1. Don't change horses until ...they stop running.
2. Strike while... the bug is close.
3. It's always darkest before... Daylight Saving Time.
4. Never underestimate the power of... termites.
5. You can lead a horse to water but... How?
6. Don't bite the hand... that looks dirty.
7. No news is... impossible
8. A miss is as good as a... Mr.
9. You can't teach an old dog new... Math
10. If you lie down with dogs... you'll stink in the morning.
11. Love all... trust Me.
12. The pen is mightier than... the pigs.
13. An idle mind is... the best way to relax.
14. Where there's smoke there's... pollution.
15. Happy the bride who gets... all the presents.
16. A penny saved is... not much.
17. Two's company, three's... the Musketeers.
18. Don't put off till tomorrow what you... put on to go to bed.
19. Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and... You have to blow your nose.
20. There are none so blind as... Stevie Wonder.
21. Children should be seen and not... spanked or grounded.
22. If at first you don't succeed... get new batteries.
23. You get out of something only what you.... See in the picture on the box
24. When the blind lead the blind ... get out of the way.
25. A bird in the hand is... going to poop on you

                      And the WINNER and last one!
 
26. Better late than... Pregnant  ;D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D     

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming HOOOOYA lets go again baby !!!!!!

I really like 25. "a bird in the hand is going to poop on you."  I guess its the English side of my ancestory  and their bath room humor.

lol That, and alot of kids toys are electronic now.  So if at first they don't work, try new batteries. ;) Especially the newer ones that hoover through 'em.

Ah, such fun to be out riding...

Most things I have with batteries are rechargeable (like the iPod I said I'd likely never get  :P ).  I did have a wireless keyboard/mouse set though that went through AAs pretty quick, and heard digital cameras that don't come with the rechargeable batteries can burn through 'em pretty fierce.
