I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened.

I'm one card short of a full deck. One wave short of a shipwreck. I think I'm a banana tree. I'm knitting with only one needle. I'm driving only three wheels these days.

And there you have it.

17. I have never heard many of these before, but a question for you
I laughed at yours, but that is because I think it is a reference to the little bubble in a level. Am I right? If not please explain. Thanks.

Level is for horizontal surfaces, plumb is for vertical ones.
This line is level _.
This one is plumb |.

24. Trof, thanks, but you did not have to illustrate horizontal and vertical
It made me laugh though. I did not remember the difference between level and plumb, thanks.

13. I have only seen it once.
It was on a tribute show of some sort. Years ago. I never saw it aired as a stand-alone piece.

16. "knitting with only one needle" I never heard that one before
I like it though and just wrote it on my note pad. As someone who has visited the funny-farm a few times, welcome to the Crazy Club.
