  1. Your URL came up on Google when I entered the idiom “that’s all she wrote” attempting to research where that idiom came from. Can you give me any help? Just a quick note if you have the time. Thanks… Greg

  2. According to the Word Detective (http://www.word-detective.com/100699.html), the jury is still out on the origin of this phrase.
    When searching for the origin of a phrase, I find it helpful to do a search like this
    origin “that’s all she wrote”
    rather than just the phrase.
    Unfortunately, we’ve just used the word origin all over this page so it’ll still come up high in results, but at least there’s a link to the lovely Word Detective now. 😉
