Guest blogging at a "bigwig's"

As I checked my e-mail early this a.m. I got a very nice surprise: an offer to guest blog over at La Shawn Barber's place while she takes a brief respite! I met La Shawn almost one year ago in Washington DC -- she had organized a "local" bloggers get-together, and it just so happened that my family and another had planned a New Year's road trip to the nation's capital during that exact time! She is a wonderful person -- extremely personable and friendly, not to mention smart as a whip. (Where did that expression come from, anyway? How smart can a whip be?)

Be sure to stop on by; there'll be a few other guest bloggers joining me!

The expression is "sharp as a whip" and not
"smart as a whip" but sharp came to mean smart.
A whip can be sharp and cut. My age and father
who knew all old and country expressions, gives
me right to comment. You are not the Colossus of
Rhodes, one the ancient wonders of the world.

Well, I thank you, James!

And, you're right -- I'm not the Colossus of Rhodes, nor even the Colossus of Rhodey, the one who just happens to run this place!

Apparently your reading ability doesn't equal your knowledge of old and country expressions! ;-)
