"Good gravy" is one of the phrases I've adopted for use instead of swear words.

It may or may not be helping.

I like gravy (why in the name of Sam Houston isn't gravy spelled gravey?). And I like trains.

I didn't know we had a gravy train.

What else are y'all holding out on?

Isn't "good" gravy redundant? It's like saying end result or close proximity.

I'm pretty sure that would make it an adjective meaning 'like a grave or somehow related to a grave.'

Example sentences:
The hole that I dug to plant a shrub looked kind of gravey.
Bob gathered the headstone, plastic flowers, and other gravey things needed to set up his Halloween display.

So a gravey train would look more like this:

No, there is definitely bad gravy.

I'm going for inane & insane....

1) One of the best things about learning Cajun Cooking is that everything is based on gravy (roux). Gumbos & grillades.... Mrs. Del was inspired to master home-made buttermilk biscuits, just because I learned how to make some awesome sausage gravy. Yum!

2) "Gravy train" is an expression which means "plentiful cash flow with little or no effort."

I have been learning how to trade stock options... still trading with "paper money" (pretend trades with pretend funds). I have learned how to cash in on fake news, which is a plentiful resource.

For example, two evenings ago a rumor circulated that President Trump had tried to squash the investigation into Michael Flynn's relations with Russian agents. Yesterday morning, the market took a small dive in response to fears that this would derail Trump's economic reforms. Volatility and option premiums shot up.... and I made a quick $1400 (alas, not real money yet) by seeing that the market would recover over the next week or so as the rumors proved unfounded.

(For those with tech enough to care, I sold an iron condor on the Russell 2000.)

3) For you train lovers, sorry. I got nothing on real trains here.

I don't fault people for enjoying an abundance of financial "security." Money surely can make this life a whole lot easier.

This is true. Any gravy from a jar is terrible in my experience. Homemade from the drippings of cooked meat is the absolute best.

Hmmm. It's not like I eat a lot of gravy, so I'll take yours words for it. I just don't think I've ever had bad gravy. Am I blessed?
