Dec 19, 2005

Jan 12, 2006

Nice job! I got them all!! Keep up the great job!
May 11, 2008

This was awesome. I got the first three right but didn't get the last one.
May 11, 2008

Nice teaser! I got all but the last...don't think I've heard that before...
May 11, 2008

It was easy - but fun. Thanks!
May 11, 2008

Really easy, but fun. These old sayings come easily to old gals. Thanks for a smile on Mother's Day. By the way, "Happy Mother's Day" to all the mom's out there. Hope it's a good one.
May 11, 2008

Happy Mother's Day Autiesis. Never
give a hint of your age!!!!

I got all but #3, not bad at all!

It's nice to do something just a bit easier especially on Mom's Day!
May 11, 2008

Madelulabelle ...................

I say Marches to the beat of a different drummer. (Is unusual,
of different orientation etc.)

May 11, 2008

Ditto Auntiesis. Happy Mother's Day to you also.
May 11, 2008

Pretty good!
May 11, 2008

Loved It.
May 11, 2008

Very easy, but fun. And the greeting's back at ya', auntiesis! Thanks!
May 11, 2008

Good one!
For #4 I always thought it was March to the beat of your own drummer
Maybe I'm wrong, that happens alot, but I guess it depends on age and area
May 11, 2008

I also thought the saying was "March to the beat of your own drum" or is it "Dance to the beat of your own drum"? That's what I thought the clue was alluding to, but I think I have heard the saying "March to the beat of a different drummer" before. Oh well. This was overall pretty good! =)
May 12, 2008

Meh, too easy.
May 12, 2008

I am now wide awake and of to grind some beans. That one made me salivate for some coffee!
May 12, 2008

That was great!!!
May 11, 2011

Isn't it A different drum, or Your own drum? Never heard drummer before. Makes no sense.
May 11, 2011

It makes total sense. Follow the leader...

Pretty much. Got all but #3. Thought of containers, not book volumes.
May 11, 2011

Actually, it's 'drum' that makes no sense: the drum can't make a beat without the drummer, no?
May 11, 2014

A bit easy but fun! If you haven't heard them by the time you are my age, it might be a bit harder. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there.
May 11, 2014
