There are a lot of old sayings that I wonder where they came from and if the meanings have changed over the years. Some can be easily explained and some can not. I got thinking last night about the phrase "tie the knot" and how the meaning of that became "getting married". I came to the conclusion that no one knows absolutely for sure where it came from. One theory is that it pertained to tying the knots to form the support in the wedding bed. Another was that the bride's dress had knots on it that others plucked off for luck in their future romantic endeavors. Take a look here:
Last night a storm front came through the area. They were predicting severe weather but none materialized around my area, just some scattered lighting and a some needed rain. Of course it cleared off so we can go to the flea market (grin). But my old female pup shakes uncontrollably when anything goes bang or boom. We even gave here some "calming" medicine but nothing seems to help. So, I didn't get all my beauty sleep and at least for today I have an excuse for being ugly. Now, I hope all you beautiful readers of my blog have a very nice day, you hear?
