Gem of the Week

I found this in the West Coast Sentinel, the local paper for my old home town. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
A teacher collected some well known proverbs and gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb. She asked the kids to come up with the rest of the proverb - with some interesting results.
Strike while the ..... bug is close
It's always darkest before...... daylight savings time.
An idle mind is..... the best way to relax.
You can lead a horse to water but...... how?
Don't bite the hand that ....looks dirty.
A miss is as good as a..... Mr.
Where there's smoke, there's..... pollution.
Happy the bride who..... gets all the presents.
A penny saved is..... not much.
Two's company, three's..... the musketeers.
Children should be seen and not...... spanked or grounded.
When the blind lead the blind..... get out of the way.
Fortunately God's word, the Bible, is a lot more reliable.
Good Evening,
Tania
