    My Grannie lived with us when we were little. Whenever we would plan on doing someing at my home She would say "If the Devil don't object and the creek don't rise" we would be able to do whatever we'd planned. I think of her often especially now since my mom died last month.

    Behold the Woman
    ”Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater.
    If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.
    If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
    If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
    If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
    She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
    So, if you give her any rubbish, be ready to receive a ton of crap!”

    If I could be possibly lucky enough to win the Go machine.
    I would choose Hearts, Leaves and hexagons to start with.
