Two cowboys cme across an Indian with his ear against the ground.
One cowboy says to the other, "It's amazing what a redskin cAn tell you from vibrations in the earth. Let's see what he knows." And he asked the Indian what was going on.
The Indian said, "Wagon pass here ten minutes ago. Large prairie schooner, full of furniture and household goods. Pulled by four horses - palimino, sorrel and two black. Farmer driving wagon. Wife sits next to him. Two little chldren behind wearing gingham dresses. All laugh heartily."
"That really is amazing. How do you know all this?"
"Wagon roll over my head."


Give a man a fish and he can eat for one day; give a man a fishing pole and he will find an excuse to never work again.

As for the Indian, you remind me of the Lone Ranger/Tonto bit about the beautiful starry night.

Better would be http://www.phrases.org.uk/index.html. The phrase thesaurus part is a pay site.


Build a man a fire and he's warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.
