Yesterday’s sayings were from my mother’s book. Today I will share some from my own. I confess to a thumping heart when I would have courage enough to ask a male classmate to write – such trepidation as I waited to read the verdict. (Some were in a book from 1940 (child, 6) others high school.)
When all your friends forsake you and others love you not; Run to me, my darling, just as fast as you can trot.
Love is such a funny thing. Its shape is like a lizzard. It wraps its tail around your heart, and jumps into your gizzard.
When this whole world is flooded, and I am doomed to die; I’ll stand upon my arithmetic book, because it is so dry.
Snow on the mountain, the sun can’t melt it. I love you, and I can’t help it.
Rain falls from clouds, Clouds fall from above; but he greatest fall you’ll ever make is when you fall in love.
The higher the mountain, the cooler the breeze; the younger the couple, the tighter the squeeze.
You have many a friend and many a lover; to give you more room, I’ll write on the cover.
I had a little dog; his name was Jim. I put him in the bath tub for a little swim. He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap. I took him to the doctor and he said, “No hope.”
Crackers are dry without the cheese, So is the kiss without the squeeze.
First comes love; then comes marriage; Then comes Oneta with a baby carriage.
Before you’re married, it’s honey and pie; After you’re married it’s root hog or die.
YOURS TIL THE TOM CAT HAS KITTENS!
