The disappearing art of...

You've heard 'em, I'm sure..."A Bird In The Hand is worth Two In The Bush"..."Never Count Your Chickens until they're Hatched"..."Putting the Cart before the Horse"..."descending the slippery slope" (actually, that's a fairly new one used in political circles)..."If Something can go wrong, it probably will" (this blog is a good example of that!)..."Wait 'till the Cows Come home", and so on and so forth. Sayings like this, don't really make a lot of sense, and yet they do. And you know I'm "Right as Rain" about that! Well, in some cases, these cliches need to be modernized, in order to more accurately reflect our changing times. One of those old sayings (and I'm not sure what it means to this day) is, "tossing out the baby with the bath-water". Huh? Maybe that's a way of saying, "don't overlook details". But that's a phrase that needs to be modiified. And I've done just that:

Obviously, posted this photo on a REALLY SLOW NEWS DAY.

Actually, the Mom who's using this technique really has her act together. Do the dishes and clean the kid at the same time. But that presents a problem: Do you do the dishes with baby soap, or clean the kid with dish soap? I would think, after perusing this picture, that right now the baby is getting "rinsed".

Silly, yeah, I know. There's a newer, slightly more relevant post below.

I don't have anything relevant to say. I'm just dodging yard work and thought I'd say hi! How the hell are ya?

just hanging out waiting for my sleeping chamber to cool down enough to sleep.
hard to believe that something that is supposed to be good for you has so much sodium.
That is one problem I have with lots of prepackaged stuff. too much salt.
and I like salt but not that much.

Hi, Cathy. I would think yardwork is more exciting than reading my blog! Hey, I'm doing pretty well, but the heat's really gettin' me. I see you closed with 'Yoda1', so I'll respond with a 'Yoda2'. Thanks for stopping by. Even though I don't have anything relevant to say, either.

Sage, what can I say? Pitting Boston against the M's is like putting Mike Tyson in the ring with Richard Simmons.

Heya, Jinxster...the Spencer's on Sherman stocks the best-tasting pepperoni in their meat dept. Well, my arthritis is under control, but salt from that stuff still gets me a bit. I guess I'm safe with milk...the quart carton I'm drinking here only has 20% of the maximum allowable sodium amount. AI was talking to a clerk at the store last night and he said there's so much sodium in everything because all of the brands are owned by 2 or 3 conglomerates with their eye on the mighty dollar. These days, I dodge all the sodium I can.

I actually use palmolive, which is gentle on the hands and other various parts of the body, but also does a heckuva job on the dishes. Actually, I have a dishwasher, so I don't use the sink much for washing dishes. I just had them coralled there and then The Goo had ice cream all over her, so I was just cleaning her up. Made a cute picture, tho.

Hi, Mommy...I was trying to figure out why you'd written about Palmolive (all my blog replies come to my e-mail in-box, too), so I had to go visit my blog to find the relevance of your'd responded to the "baby dishwater" thing. I suppose yer ok as long as you don't put "the goo" in the dishwasher. "The Goo"...I love that nickname...
