My mother had so many weird sayings:
I wish I had that card and you had a stick in your eye! [This, during a Canasta game.]
The day’s not gettin’ any younger!
Over my dead body!
You lazy pup!
As crooked as a dog’s hind leg!
Oh my stars and garters!
I’ve never been sure what stars and garters had in common, and I’d hate to take a gander, but I know as well as I know green jello, that it meant something pretty spectacular was going on!
And something is! I finally reached 142. Woo, woo, hoo! November 21, 2009! After four days of coming down off an evil pumpkin roll, I finally did it.
Another three months and I should be able to lose the ONE MORE POUND to goal!
