Every cloud has a silver lining. The other week I was late putting the Sepia Saturday call up - better late than never is what I say - and, as beggars can't be choosers, I decided not to look a gift horse in the mouth, so I chose a postcard from my vintage postcard collection as the prompt image. I have heard it said that a picture paints a thousand words, but my prompt picture had a few words attached in the form of a proverb. I know that fools rush in where angels fear to tread, but fortune favours the brave and therefore I decided to kill two birds with one stone and use another proverb postcard for my own Sepia Saturday submission.
The proverb in question - "first be just, then be generous" - is one I have never heard of and, if Google is anything to go by, neither has anyone else. However, fish always stink from the head down whereas half a loaf is better than none. But as Amy said to me just this morning, if you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas, but, said I, it is easy to be wise after the event. Put it all down to the chap who puts the calls up - if he hadn't forgotten to put the call up on time there would have been a proper sepia call this week and you might have got a proper post from me. But as they say - if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.
