A person wants to make comments on others and become a critic.They offer up suggestions on improveing other folks.But the person does not want to be identified with the statement.So the person does not sign their name.This is like somebody showing up in a crowd up town with a toe sack over their head telling everyone to vote for him and he will improve upon the present conditions and bring back a higher standard of moral conduct to local politics.Well,,The first thing the crowd would ask is.Why did you come in disguise in the first place?

Just ignore them, If everyone did they would get tired of talking to themselves and go away.

My honest opinion is that folks who do these things, really don't have anything to say, or maybe they can't think how to start a thread so they try to steer people toward things they would rather hear about instead of just saying "hey, let's talk about ducks."

Kinda sad really. My one real flaw is can't-shut-up-ness. When I take the time and go to the expense to sign on, I'm gonna get my quarter's worth. :)

Morning Clod and Lenor. Im taking the day off and going shopping for some croaker sacks for the crowd in town.

Howdy neighbor!
Think they will look better with toad sacks over their heads?
I am going to do a few chores in between taking care of my elderly neighbor.
I sort of have to pick and choose my free minutes.
Taking care of elederly folks is very time consuming I have found.
Have a great day, our pal Clod is working this morning.
Is Maggie learning how to talk to those birds yet?

It interests me that you mentioned toad sacks. I was raised by parents of the Great Depression and to this day I thought they were called toe sacks. Maybe I heard it wrong or perhaps my parents thought they were toe sacks. I'm reading about the Great Depression for my own information and one author wrote about toad sacks. To your knowledge is the term toad sack accurate?

Vic you used the words "toad sacks" I have heard "tow sacks" "tote sack" "toad sacks as you mentioned. I wonder how many other variations are out there.

Vic and Lenore sorry about the name goof up .

Cindi    Posted 06-21-2003 at 09:09:49       [Reply]  [No Email]
I think it's 'toe' sack. Short for potatoe sack. But that's just a guess.

Hmmmm--I thought they were as ugly as toads and they needed sack to cover them up? (sorry, I was up late last night and up early this morning so my attempts at humor are a little lame} LOL

Maybe I'm easily amused but I got a chuckle out of it! LOL! Humor is always the best medicine. :)

I thought they were called toad sacks because we used to put the bull frogs in them when we would go frog giging.

There are many names for that sack I noticed.I actually think it is TOW sack,Something to do with shipping.I hope we find out but we can call it like were learned to call it afterward.There is the other one on fishing lines.Trot lines? Trout lines? I bet there are several versions around the country.

The burlap sack commonly used when I was a boy in Tenn..I am 79 yrs old..was called a 'toe' sack probably due the use for potatoes.
