Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Quotes, stories from readers, and funny stuff from around the web. 2/3/10

The Wise ol' Owl
The Wise ol' Owl

 This Wednesday Words of Wisdom is dedicated to a very special wise woman who is no longer with us.  My grandmother Joanna Powell was a loving, generous, and very wise woman.  She said many things that touched many lives in very special ways but the thing I remember most as her granddaughter was her funny and lovable stories and rhymes.

Here are a couple of her songs she used to sing for your enjoyment.

  • I had a lil chicken that wouldn't lay an egg, so I poured hot water up and down it's legs, that lil chicken screamed and that lil chicken begged, and now my lil chicken lays hard boiled eggs.

  • I love you a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. (Repeat again)

Joanna Powell will always be remembered by me as the sweetest most caring woman with her Kentucky charm and hill billy rhymes that made me laugh and giggle even on my saddest of days, the day she left this world for a better place and all of her pains ended.  I love you Grandma and I hope you are reading this from above having a little laugh along with me as I remember the laughs we used to have together. Your granddaughter, Rhonda Sullivan.
