Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Wesley) Carter taught many lessons using old adages. Some of these he repeated many times until the lesson actually stuck. I'm sure he learned them from his parents (Ed and Annie Carter) and his grandparents. I imagine when he was growing up and during his high school years he heard them many times--so he passed them on to his children. Here are a few that I remember:

“Many hands make light work.”
“Beggars can’t be choosers.”
“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
“Laughter is the best medicine.”
“Don’t judge a book by its cover.”
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
“All’s well that ends well.”
“If something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.”
Aunt Genni
