This might be fun.
My mom used to say
"He'd gripe if they hung him with a new rope."
Or
"darker that the inside of a cow"

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that wasn't an old saying. It was a saying about being old.

"Things get better with age. I am approaching MAGNIFICENT"

Do you want to eat your teeth *LOL
Some boy said that to another in the early 70s..thought it was rather funny being one would never be able to chew their teeth and would sure be a chore to swallow*LOL

*(not my Mom)
* Eat it or wear it
*Eat it or go to bed without dinner
*What you see is what you get. Pick up your fork now.


(while trying to eat YUKKK LIVER/ Tripe )
*Pretend it is watermelon.

Yeah that would work if I had an imagination beyond the moon!
The smell of that liver and tripe were horrifying!

My mom use to yell at the top of her lungs (she has a really gentle voice*)
A LITTLE LOUDER I CANT HEAR YOU !!!*lol Until I stopped*LOL She was great!*LOL


(I USE TO HOLD MY BREATHE @4yrs old )
AND SHE WOULD TELL ME I WASN'T PURPLE YET ...
A LITTLE LONGER AND LAUGH AT ME ...

You're dead if I catch you!*LOL
(never did *LOL)

Catch you later..

Way to go those are way cool.

What the Lord don't want the frost won't take.

One for the frost, one for the crows, one for the worms and one that GROWS.

Mom always said you could tell if it was going to be a cold winter by how thick the corn husks are.

"From your lips to God's ears." was one of my grannies favorite sayings...

and another was
"Lord willing and the creak don't rise"
I still say them both allthe time...kids just giggle.

I have a recording of a song that was popular during WW2 that said something like that.

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. Praise the Lord, we ain't a'goin fishin'. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition and we'll all stay free. Yes, the sky pilot said it. You have to give him credit for a son-of-a-gun-of-a-gunner was he.

That's all I can remember right now.
