Old Sayings

The wisdom is years
ago can be turned like
a prism. Teaching old
dogs new tricks can
sometimes mean the old
dogs are the teachers.
A bush might be worth
two birds, especially
if one likes landscaping.
The good old days were
not so good for all,
the symbols of that time
swaying in the wind with
pride are cloth and stone
stingers for others.
