Michael Edwards





Actions  speak louder than words  don’t speak.


If you can’t beat them join them  run


There’s no time like the present past.


Two heads are better than one none

    Oh lol, good write and pic M.
    You painting (or painted) that picture which is worth a thousand words, as they say? That could save ya writing a long poem, and save on berles too! lol.
    'At this moment in time' - we've gone mad, hearing that naff expression!

      If this moment isn't in time is it in custard?

      • orchidee

        Basically, yes, custard; I said, basically, yes. Don't ya just hate people who start every sentence with 'Basically?!'

          Thanks Andy - and dusk's got some good ones below.

        • L. B. Mek

          witty and light-hearted but it also makes you think a little more about the idioms thrown about: all willy-nilly on the daily

          • Michael Edwards

            Most idioms are (to me at least) as bad as fingernails on blackboards.
            Thanks LB

            In for a penny, in for a pee
            Two swallows dont make a full stomache
            Many a mickle is a typo for pickle
            Red sky at night shepherds camp fire is out of control.

            Would love to see the doll selling small arms.

              Brilliant - the first is my favourite.

            • The Uneducated O.A.P

              I'll have a go, but have I got it right?
              Every cloud has a silver mine in
              Love the pic, Glenit looks a honey.

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              GOOD EVENING - Uncle Mike - Love the Cartoon - Looks like a Butchers in Canibal Country !
              Love the SMOIDI - my fave is 3 - which is a good Mantra for 2020 - It promised so so Much and so far has delivered so Little !

              There is no Time like the PAST !
              Compare the TOKIO Olympics with LONDON 2012 !

              Brian*s is: *Look before You ~ Go on a Blind Date !*
              Mine is: *People in Glass Houses ~ Shouldn*t use the Shower !*

              Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
              Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐ŸคŽ
