Mo Hawg - Week 43


Day 1.

   Mos Sort of Skewed Wisdom: A backward poet writes inverse.

    Mos Favorite News Story from 2003: In Modesto, California, a would-be robber was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon.  The man used a thumb and forefinger to simulate a gun.  Unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket.

   One of our Colquitt County First Grade teachers gave each of her students the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come u p with the remainder of the proverb.  Its amazing that these were done by first graders as their insight will surprise you!

   The pen is mightier than the..pigs.

   Mos Wisdom:  Surviving and living  your life successfully requires courage.  The goals and dreams youre seeking require courage and risk-taking.  Learn from the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.

Day 2.

   Mos Sort of Skewed Wisdom:  A mans home is his castle, in a manor of speaking.

   Mos Favorite News Story from 2003:On Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, California, some folks new to boating, were having a problem with their new boat.  No matter how they tried, they couldnt get their boat going.  It was sluggish in every maneuver no matter how much power was applied.  After about an hour, they putted to a nearby marine, thinking someone there could tell them what was wrong.  A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working order.  The engine ran fine, the out drive went up and down and the prop was the correct size and pitch.

   One of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath.  He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard.  Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer.

  This is a true story, folks!

Day 3.

   Mos Sort of Skewed Wisdom: Does the name Pavlov ring a bell?

   Mos Getting Older Wisdom: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

   One of our Colquitt County First Grade teachers gave each of her students the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come u p with the remainder of the proverb.  Its amazing that these were done by first graders as their insight will surprise you!

   An idle mind is.the best way to relax.

   Mos Wisdom: Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think  you are.

Day 4.

   Mos Sort of Skewed Wisdom: Reading while sunbathing makes you well red.

   Mos Getting Older Wisdom: The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

   One of our Colquitt County First Grade teachers gave each of her students the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come u p with the remainder of the proverb.  Its amazing that these were done by first graders as their insight will surprise you!

   Where theres smoke theres..pollution.

   Mos Very Interesting Word for Today: We use the word alibi as a generalized excuse.  Where did this little word originate?  Was it from a corruption of an early court term meaning to plead Not Guilty?  Was it from the Latin, meaning I did not do this thing?  Or was it from the Latin meaning I was elsewhere?

  If you chose the last choice, you were correct.  It is from the Latin, meaning I was elsewhere.

Day 5.

   Mos Sort of Skewed Wisdom: When two egoists meet, its an I for an I.

   Mos Getting Older Wisdom:  Some people try to turn back their odometers.  Not Mo.  I want people to know why I look like I look.  Ive come a long wayand some of the roads were not paved.

   One of our Colquitt County First Grade teachers gave each of her students the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come u p with the remainder of the proverb.  Its amazing that these were done by first graders as their insight will surprise you!

   Happy is the bride whogets all the presents.

   Mos Wisdom: We do not remember days, but moments.  Life is moving too fastso enjoy your very own precious moments.
