Blogging Tories Site of the Week
Dust my broom as far as I can tell means simply leaving. The term came to me from delta blues artists like Robert Johnson and Son House. My research shows that it may have originated during the slave days in the US. Blacks were not allowed to marry and so would have secret ceremonies where the bride and groom would “jump the broom”. To divorce, simply enough, they would jump back over, or dust the broom. I have read that the term originated in Africa but have found nothing concise.
Anyone visiting here can jump the broom and share but also dust the broom and leave.

Stop in and say hello.
P.S. - if anyone has a spare first aid kit, leave behind when you drop in, I'm betting that Darcey will find a way to use it. :)
