Graces

GRACES, n. Three beautiful goddesses, Aglaia, Thalia and Euphrosyne, who attended upon Venus, serving without salary. They were at no expense for board and clothing, for they ate nothing to speak of and dressed according to the weather, wearing whatever breeze happened to be blowing.

2007 Update:  Begging the pardon of someone not privileged to grant it.

Graces:

to walk without shoes,
to dance on blistered feet,
to sing without a tune
delight in making ends meet.

Very poetic, Minka!

I just miss Wills & Graces.

TLP said...

Grace: If you're full of it people think you're elegant.

I miss Gracie Allen. Also Will and Grace now that AP3 mentions it.

Then may we continue to be in yours.

Good graces - this is reminding me of the tale of taking my MIL out to dinner last night for her birthday. I smell a post.

GRACES, n. Travel impediments, preventing the possessor from taking an unexpected trip. SOCIAL GRACES: what rub out the pigments from a colorful personality.

Graces: prayers before meals

God is good.
God is great.
Put some salad on my plate.
Amen.

No one told me about the no salary part. I may have to rethink. xoxo

Foolish goddesses.

So, should I want to remain in your good ones who should I ask?

Pia?

Well, this was manageable.

Minka, that sounds like an Irish prayer, but sober.

AP3, are you some kinda homo?

Say goodnight, TLP.

G, we all enjoy your stories about the generation crazier than ours.

Amoeba, great definition of Social Graces.

Jamie Dawn, Praise God from whom all blessings flow, and you could have used more time on the dough.

Mireille, it's better to be the amused than the muse.

Cooper, your place is secure. Not running for office, are you?
