Maxim of the Week

Charlie never got over the one that got away.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.


  1. The allure of the lure
    Is never a cure
    When the bait is rejected
    In a way unexpected

  2. Even a worm will turn.

  3. I always thought two in the hand is worth one in the bush...
    either way, gotta use my WV 'embezmoi" which I am sure is something some gal croons to Rod Stewart in one of his songs...

  4. Saj, that is so funny about the Rod Stewart song! I know just the one you're talking about.

    I don't really know what the worth of a bird in the bush is. I suppose it depends on whether or not it's edible, and how much it weighs. Is turkey a traditional Xmas dinner in Kiwiland? Or do you eat kiwis? Or is that cannibalistic? And why does the fruit have the same name as the bird? And what's with that shoe polish that's called "Kiwi"?

  5. sometimes it seems like there are a lot of ones that got away. but if they got away we only know our fantasy of what they might have been like. maybe awful. maybe heavenly.

    is the bird in the hand happy or pecking at my flesh with its little beak?

  6. Good morning, dear Louciao. I'm looking at my blog reader and I see ... lots of Maxims all in a row. Something's up. You republished them. I haven't read your blog yet so I don't know why.

    But - they look like a calendar! - pictures all in a row. Can you sell them as a 2011 calendar? I want one.

  7. Suki Poet,
    No such thing as "coulda, shoulda, woulda"...

    We make our choices and have to deal with the consequences. I do my best to live without regrets, though the older I get, the more aware I am of those fork-in-the- road-moments I sailed blithely through.

  8. Susan,
    My apologies for causing such mayhem in your Blogger reader with my maxims! Last night I imported my Arteologie blog (where they originally appeared over the past 2or so years) into Ragzedge. Please be careful not to "max out"!
