Good afternoon and glad to be back talking to you. as the title there.What does it mean?My sis in law send me a cookie recipe. Then she draw a a little diagram to tell me how to lay out the cookies. Then she says.I do not draw too well.But you catch my drift? That was it.I never bother looking it up.but she was the only one that I heard this. Have you?then tell me or us here about.You catch my drift. The day is good .I had a good day.But very sad about our vacation was cancelled.But we have credit.So we can plan another one. Got to get this BP down.I miss tennis so much. Okay,stop complaining.LOL the photo is Milano,Italy

It stands for "If you know what I mean." She just thought you would know what she meant even if her drawing was not that good. I know how disappointed you must be about missing your vacation. Wish we were not taught to follow doctor's orders, but we must!

As I was reading through the comments, I realized it could also be used when someone is in a position where they can't fully explain something. For me that might be telling another teacher to "watch our little friend. He's on a roll today. Catch my drift?" when he (the "on a roll" kid) is nearby.
