Hi Everybody, if it's Wednesday, it must be time for 'Ask Mr. Knowitall'...
Michelle Limestein of Scranton Pennsylvania asks...."Who was the 'Real' Mother Goose?"
Dear Michelle..."Well I knew this chick named Helga that could ram her way...er, Naww, thats another post...OK, No one knows for sure, but many scholars maintain that Mother Goose was actually one Elizabeth Foster Goose of Boston Mass. In 1692 when she was 27, Lizzy married a widower named Isaak Goose and immediately inherited a family of 10 children. One of her step-daughters married a printer several years later, and the printer loved listening to 'Mother Goose' recite old rhymes to the younger children. In 1719 he published a collection called Songs For The Nursery, or Mother Goose Melodies"..
Sharon Crowder-Pea of Botetourt Virginia asks..."I just LOVE high heels, who wore them first?"
Dear Shari..."In the 1600's, Louis XIV of France added a few inches to the heels of his boots, because like all Frogs, he was a shrimpy Mofo!! To his annoyance, he started a fad in the Royal Court. Soon, everyone was wearing elevated heels!! So he made his even higher..but so did everybody else!! This went on until it got ridiculous. Eventually the men's heels got smaller, but the women's heels stayed high. In the 1800's, American women copied the styles of Paris and the high heels...called 'French Heels' at first, they soon became part of American fashion."
Jill Klutz from Rancho Wino California asks..." Are you afraid of anything Mr Knowitall?"

Catoptophobia...Fear of mirrors
Teratophobia...Fear of monsters

Ha! Your source is wrong. I wore the first high heels back in the 17th century. You're right about Louie, though. He was a shrimp. And a MoFo. Whew, that's some list of stuff you're scared of. I'm glad I'm not the only one.:-)
well now i know what shrimpy mofo to blame for the scourge that are high heels. gimme my birks, screw the heels.

Oh Hi Jillie-Bean..
Did I mention your name?
You had me laughing out loud, G, before I even got to the fears section. Jill Klutz from Rancho Wino California was just too funny.
You grow weary too easily, G. We need to get you a pocket rocket to get you a real workout just to hold on to it. The only workout you might get from that Harley is if you drop it, then when you lift it, you're going to drop things that look like bearings or the counterparts to bolts.
I just knew frenchy was involved with them there high heeled shoes.
I did ask permission first you know..hehehe
Sorry about the Bucks..
