    ***get the picture. To get the meaning of something, to understand it correctly.
    ***rings a bell. Prompts my memory about a particular thing, although faintly or incompletely.
    ***brings to mind. Helps you recall something.
    ***I wasn't born yesterday. I am not so naive, inexperienced or easy to fool.
