My Mama Done Told Me – Part II

Grandmother and Granddaddy BrownMy cousin Marcia wrote after reading my original post entitled My Mama Done Told Me to pass along some of her favorite sayings of our Grandmother – Mary Dixie Brown.

You can only afford what you pay for.

You have to suffer to be beautiful.

And the Sir Walter Scott quote, “Oh, what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive.”

Marcia also reminded me that Grandmother liked to use the Uncle Remus quote when she first saw you in the morning:

How’s your copperosity sagaciating?

Grandmother loved words and the sound of words. My love of her and my father is the main reason we used her maiden name “Bearden” for Andrew’s middle name, a name he shares with his Grandfather.

More to come…
