Kerry, thanks for answering so promptly. I am so glad you agree with me. I thought probably it was just me getting old. To my mind, such usage of the English language is sacriligious. As for the Bible stuff, I figured that it was really just as you said; but, I had to ask.
I enjoy so much the posting you do and have learned from them. Thank you. I think I mentioned once before about the wonderful English teachers I had in high school. I wanted to be a teacher, but was so lousy in math, I was too chicken to even try for college back in my day. Things were a great deal stricter and you had to maintain at least a B average. I was an A student in English and History, or C or B- for all the others. The only reason I passed Business math was that I laughed at the math teachers jokes (who byw looked like Igabod Crane). His favorite poem was “Push a little, push little John, on the Delaware Lacawan.” I have no idea where he got that from and I never found out. Do you know?
Oh well, stories from the long ago, but not always forgotten. Thanks again.
