Why is someone who is feeling great "on cloud nine?" Because - types of clouds are numbered according to the altitudes they attain, with nine being the highest cloud. If someone is said to be on cloud nine, that person is floating well above worldly cares.

Why - in golf, did the term "Caddie" come from? Because - when Mary Queen of Scots went to France as a young girl, Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scots game 'golf.' He had the first course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment. To make sure she was properly chaperoned, and guarded, while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her. Mary liked this a lot and when she returned to Scotland (not a good idea in the long run), she took the practice with her. In French, the word cadet is pronounced 'caday' and the Scots changed it to caddie.

Have a good week. - MB
