    Things you used to hear. Old Folks sayings.

    Did your Grandfather or somebody have any old sayings that you still use or remember. I will start with a couple of my favorites from my dear old Grandpa!!!

    If she had as many stuck out of her , as she has had stuck in her,
    she'd look like a porcupine.

    I'm as busy as an one legged man in an ass kicking contest.

    I'm as busy as a one armed wallpaper hanger.

    it's cold as a well diggers butt.

    Thought about him the other day and remembered a lot of them and enjoyed the memories for sure.

    Later Spike

    warm smile here, Spikester...
    These may sound kinda goofy to you, but they make me smile when I think of my stepfather who passed away early 1988. We even had t-shirts made up for him & he was such a goof...he thought we actually found these shirts in a store that had the sayings on them that he always said!
    1) "I'm sorry I breathe". He would always say that to my Mom if they were getting into it. lol
    2) "You're talking to the man I love"
    Or my Mom used to say when we were out driving & she was getting ready to pass someone? She would say "Give her a kick in the gas".
    Oh & don't forget the one when you were a kid & you didn't close the door behind you right away? What...were you born in a barn?
    With my Dad? His sentences always had the word "dizzy" in them. I was a dizzy kid. Or he had a dizzy neighbor, or whatever...

    I miss my folks...
    ~~Peace~~

    My Grandad always said "If they put your brains in a jaybird, it'd fly backwards." when I goofed up.

    or

    "Stand back and give me room according to my strength" when I was working in the barn with him. I alway thought he was the stongest man alive when it was branding day.

    Love this!! My Pops had a million of 'em and I pass them on w/o even knowing it. Here are three off the top of my head.
    When an argument seemed about to turn physical..
    You wanta go to Fist City? Cause I'm here to punch your ticket.
    or when I seemed ready to challenge his boxing skills
    Bring it on, there'll be two hits, I'll hit you and you'll hit the ground.
    When I complained about something tough or unfair, and seemed about ready to quit
    If that's all it takes to knock you out of the saddle, you ain't much of a cowboy.
    You're invincible until God takes you out. So..
    ride like hell, live for heaven.

    Never look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Better than a sharp stick in the eye.

    As full of wind as a corn-eating horse.

    You can put your boots in the oven, but that doesn't make them biscuits.

    Don't squat with your spurs on.

    Finer than frog hair.

    She's popular as a june bug in a chicken coop.

    He could talk the legs off a chair.

    He's happy as a hog in slops.

    He couldn't pour rain out of a boot with a hole in the toe and directions on the heel.

    Too poor to paint, too proud to whitewash.

    I'd rather watch her walk than eat fried chicken.

    So ugly that his mama had to tie a pork chop around his neck so the dogs would play with him.

    He didn't come to town riding two to a mule.

    Lord willing and the creek don't rise.

    He'd argue with a wooden Indian.

    It's rainin' like a cow pissing on a flat rock.

    As ugly as a mud fence.

    As nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

    That dog won't hunt.

    He couldn't carry a tune if he had a bucket with a lid on it.

    He keeps a beat like cop.

    She's madder than a wet hen in a tote sack.

    I aint seen you in a month of Sundays!

    Close only counts with hand grenades and horse shoes.


    I was born in Texas... I have more of these than Carter's has Little Liver Pills.
