An Apple a Day Giveaway Hop

Welcome to An Apple a Giveaway Hop, hosted by Mama the Fox!

I’m still trying to decide whether this hop refers to the old saying about “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” or if it’s “an apple for the teacher”. Not that combining those two things doesn’t work all too well right now. If both the teacher and the student have an apple a day, along with taking a whole bunch of other precautions, perhaps they have a chance of keeping COVID19 away.

That works, doesn’t it? The mixed metaphor I mean. Solving the problem of the virus is not nearly that simple.

While you – or the teacher – are eating that apple, there’s plenty of time to get started with a good book – or if you’re having a rainy week like we are, possibly two or three good books.

That’s why I’m giving away the winner’s choice of a $10 Amazon Gift Card – whether or not they buy apples with it – or the equivalent amount of book(s) from the Book Depository to read while eating those apples. This giveaway is open everywhere that the Book Depository ships – which is a LOT of places!

    (LOL. Not really. I remember all the usual ones like those already mentioned.)

    Thanks for all the giveaway opportunities. Hope the Hurricane Sally weather doesn’t affect you too much. Take care.

  2. My grandfather used to say “Anything worth doing is worth doing well”. I’ve always remembered that.

  3. I used to tell my students, you get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit. It worked with them…. not so much my own kids. haha!

  4. “If you cross your eyes, they’ll get stuck like that.” I remember my mom and grandmother telling me that as a kid.

  5. I remember my mother saying “Work before play” a lot – I think to get me to do my chores. I am not sure if that’s an actual saying or just something she liked to say.

  6. I before e except after c , and in words like neighbor and weigh. I have no idea why I remember that, but it is true.

  7. Which old saying, like that one about the apple a day, is the one you remember most from your childhood?

    Gluttony kills more than the sword.


  8. I honestly can’t remember all the ones my mom said, but funny how I don’t really say them to my young adult boyz.

    A stitch in time saves nine.
    This too shall pass.
    If you can’t say anything nice…
    Mostly we’d sing songs.

  9. I really remember “if everyone jumps off a bridge, would you too”. I didn’t like that one lol.

  10. I remember the one Give a man a fish you feed him for a day but teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Such a true statement.

  11. The old wives’ tale that reading in dim light damages your eyes. I heard this from my mom constantly.
