Fill in the blank

Will, our fourth grader - the one who nearly two years ago decided that "Old Lady" would be a suitable title for me on our blog - recently received an assignment.

I asked him to fill in the blanks and complete these sayings, or idioms as they are commonly referred.

Anyway, here are some keepers.

You may have seen these other places, but never like this.

Remember, I gave him the first part ; Will's answers are underlined.

  1. Honesty is the best when in trouble.
  2. The grass is always greener when you're good.
  3. A penny saved is a penny earned.
  4. A woman's place is in the house.
  5. It's always darkest before the day.
  6. Crime does not solve problems.
  7. People who live in glass houses should not break down.
  8. You can't teach an old dog how to walk.
  9. Where they're smoke there's trouble.
  10. Never underestimate the power of God.
  11. Love all, trust everyone.
  12. Two is company, three is family.
  13. Don't bite the hand that helps you.
  14. If you lie down with dogs be careful.
  15. No news is fun.
  16. Fight fire with power.
  17. You can lead a horse to water but not a cat.
  18. When the cat's away, stay away.
  19. Children should be seen and not heard.
  20. A fool and his money are funny.
