I just read this wrong! My brain substituted HOMELESS for hopeless....now I can't stop laughing at myself.
Ha, me! All my cousins are boys besides two on my mom's side, but I didn't always get along with the one closest to my age until recently so I was always with the boys when growing up. So I got dirty, got bruised and bloody, played football, and many other things. I loved it! Miss being a carefree child dearly!
Although my 'southern soul' hasn't quite reached full maturity.
A GREAT OLD SOUTHERN SAYING....Can remember my Grandmother saying this...my Daddy also, and now I use it. Been around a long time....but still applies. Yup....the creeks do rise round this part of the country and when that happens, the Good Lord is not gonna let you get anywhere. Love the country sayings. SH
