Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

They say all kinds of things
They say
There’s more than one way to skin a cat
Now who would do a thing like that?

They say
A penny saved is a penny earned
I just hope that’s not all you learned

They say
A stitch in time saves nine
But holes in jeans can look just fine

They say
Strike while the iron is hot
But the real question is, “Strike what?”

They say
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
But some say that it makes it wander

They say
Actions speak louder than words
Unless you yell from the rooftop with the birds

They say
You need to put your ducks in a row
But what if they don't want to go?

They say
You’re barking up the wrong tree
I say, well maybe not, let’s wait and see

They say
You made it by the skin of your teeth
Better the skin than what’s beneath

They say
The best things in life are free
Nothing’s ever free; you can take it from me

They say
The grass is greener on the other side
And you can try it if you swallow your pride

They say
Good things come to those who wait
Oh balderdash; don’t hesitate

They say
It’s raining cats and dogs
Well better that than cows and hogs

They say
Don’t bite off more than you can chew
And don’t talk with your mouth full too

They say
You can’t judge a book by its cover
But if you don’t like it then just pick another

They say
Money can’t buy you happiness
But I’d feel sad if I had any less

They say
Give it the benefit of the doubt
But I doubt there’s much to even think about

They say
What goes up must come down
You can probably find it at the Lost and Found

They say
There’s a silver lining in every cloud
Sure, cross your fingers and say that out loud

They say
Revenge is a dish best served cold
Yes, it’s true; it never grows old

They say
You hit the nail right on the head
Better than my thumb is what I said

They say
You can kill two birds with one stone
You’ll have to say ten Hail Marys to atone

They say
You should let sleeping dogs lie
They’ll come to dinner, by and by

They say
It comes only once in a blue moon
But sometimes it comes all too soon

They say
An apple a day keeps the doctor away
But if it’s apple pie, then you’re going to pay

They say
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket
If you drop it you will blow a gasket

They say
We’ll never see eye to eye
Well that because you’re much taller than I

They say
A picture’s worth a thousand words
But if it’s modern art, it’s still absurd

They say
To get your ducks in a row
But what if they don’t want to go?

They say
I’m not playing with a full deck
Well neither are you so what the heck

They say
You can say that again
And I did…
