One of the news anchors kinda chuckled after that report was given and utters, “It goes to show that no good deed goes unpunished.”

Famous Sayings: #37 — ‘Breaking Bread’

November 20, 2016

Breaking bread together.

breaking bread, famous sayings

When I picked this topic, I was coming up with a 30-day posting schedule. I quickly picked a famous saying that somehow reminded me of Thanksgiving (which is this week in the U.S.) because a dinner was undoubtedly being reference.
