    Re: Old Time Sayings

    'Calf-rope'. They ain't nobody up here knows what that means. I never said it, neither. Hope the kids aren't readin this. My mom used some expressions that I would get slapped for if I repeated. She said 'hell's bells' way before AC/DC. 'He's as wild as a peach orchard boar'. (Must of been somethin in peaches that made pigs go wild, I guess) 'Sh*t fire and save matches!' If you expressed a bunch of grandiose hopes about the future, she might say, 'Yeah, and you might sh*t and fall back in it.' She would pronounce someone who was prone to a lot of braggin and big talk as 'full of sh*t as a Christmas turkey'. And if my mom, who has been deader'n a doornail for a while now, is somehow seein this and thinkin 'Of all the things, you have to remember and repeat THAT!?!' Well, told ya I was listenin, didn't I?!

    That girl was so ugly, she looked like her face had been on fire and somebody tried to put it out with a hatchet. He didn't know his *ss from a hole in the ground, AND he didn't know sh*# from Shinola. (Shinola was a shoe polish. I'm sure the Shinola people loved that one.)

    Re: Old Time Sayings

    I like this thread. If you had a whole bunch of somethin, you could say that 'I got more of them than Carter's got Little Liver pills!' If anybody here get's that reference, you're special, and you can explain it to the younger folk. I won't, cause it was waaay before my time. Plus, sometimes I'm so lazy I'd stop plowin to fart. (We got smart and figured out what Shinola was, so we heard we wouldn't know sh*t from wild honey) Don't let the kids see this post. They'll be laughin at us too much and using our posts for school reports and such.

    Dang, almost forgot . . . Cooter Brown.

    Here in southeast Arkansas you can be drunker 'en, uglier 'en, dumber 'en, or as lost as Cooter Brown. Musta been a fun guy to hang out with. They even named a town outside Crossett --- Cooter, Arkansas.

    I don't know who Cooter Brown was, but he must have been "three sheets to the wind" a lot.

    Re: Old Time Sayings

    When I was a rambunctious little brat, my Grandpa used to say I would drive a wooden Indian crazy, or make a preacher cuss. My dad used to get mad when I'd break something and would tell me I could tear up an anvil with a rubber mallet.

    There was another one that involved a frog but I don't remember how it went.

    Re: Old Time Sayings

    I sometimes feel like I've been shot at and missed, and sh#t at and hit. One interesting thing is studying the origin of some of the old sayings. I'd still like to know who Katie is and why she had to bar the door. I'm in my element with this topic. I know a bunch of 'em. I'm loaded for bear.

    Everything looks better on a full stomach.

    I've never regretted something I didn't say.

    Better to keep silent and have people think you are a fool than to open your mouth and prove them right.

    Re: Old Time Sayings

    My grandad used to say, "this country is going to hell in a handbasket".

    "if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck".

    "that ain't worth a plug nickle".
