“She’s got legs and she knows how to use them…” 
 I love ZZ Top and today I hear this song in a different context. My legs carry me everywhere…any place I want to go. They help me fly to the aid of a hurt child, they are jungle gyms and galloping horses. They allow me to stroll along and enjoy nature. Propelling me through the water as I go for a swim. I can help someone by giving then a “leg up.” Races are measured by them. I wonder how long it took my grandfather, a farm-boy from Nebraska who joined the NAVY in WWII, to get his “Sea-legs.” Legs are critical to life because when you aren’t doing well you are considered to be on your last leg. Thanks for enduring this short post full of idioms…just my chance to pull your leg.
