#116: Butter My Butt And Call Me A Biscuit And Other Country Sayings

Everyone is an expert these days. And even when they've got nothin' to say, they say it. So when the tweets grow tiresome, head back to the commonsense wisdom of the good ol' days. Each full-color page of the countrified Butter My Butt And Call Me A Biscuit! 2013 Day-to-Day Calendar imparts a time-tested nugget of truth guaranteed to make even the most jaded among us crack a smile. Here are some examples:

* When things aren't going your way, you might say . . . If it was rainin' soup, they'd hand me a fork.

* To a friend who was complaining about his day, you might say . . . You woke up breathin', so it ain't a complete loss.

* She's nuttier than a squirrel's cheeks in October.

REVIEW:
This was one helluva fun book to read each morning. I learned tons of fun and new sayings, and had a barrel of laughs along the way.
I had no idea how many different sayings there were in the South. Now I have a vast knowledge of witticisms to use throughout my life. 
Anyone would get a kick out of this book. It's even clean enough for younger minds to read too.
Won't you grab a copy for 2014?

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
