Tomorrow Will Come

On Sunday I'm traveling for the day job, and I'll be out of town for a few days, so I'm trying to wind up a few things before I hit the trail, going westward across the state.

I don't want to cut off the discussion for the giveaway of the little 'STAY THE COURSE' emblem too soon but I'd like to pull the name out of the hat before I go. So if you haven't posted a comment yet, and you still want to do that, I'm leaving it open until tomorrow morning. Then I'll close it, and announce all the good news on Saturday, so hang in a little longer.

Based on some of your ingenius ideas, here are three definitions for -STAY that so far I've decided to cling to:

1. To stop from motion or falling; to prop; to fix firmly; to hold up; to support. Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side. --Ex. xvii. 12.

2. To support from sinking; to sustain with strength; to satisfy in part or for the time. He has devoured a whole loaf of bread and butter, and it has not staid his stomach for a minute. --Sir W. Scott.

3. To bear up under; to endure; to support; to resist successfully. She will not stay the siege of loving terms, Nor bide the encounter of assailing eyes. --Shak.

Who can argue with Sir Walter Scott, the Bible and Shakespeare, right?
"This above all: to thine own self be true". - (Hamlet Act I, Scene III).

I've really enjoyed reading your comments, keep posting if you're not done yet, and tomorrow will come.
PS - to clarify, in case there's confusion, the folks who posted a comment on the May 8 blog post (which has been closed for new comments for a while now) are the ones who have the 50% discount in the Etsy shops - just send me a message in Etsy, identify yourself as one of those folks and let me know what piece(s) you'd like so I can reserve for you and mark down the price before you do the transaction!
