    My papa used to always say, "Procrastination is the thief of time"

    My dad would always tell me that it was cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.

    My grandmother used to warn us when we were little girls that if we slept with dogs we would get fleas.

    "Carelessness, overconfidence and arrogance are our greatest enemies."

    I often make my own up when I can find another way to say something. Yesterday I used, "Don't swat at mosquitoes when a gator's got you by the leg".

    And, I don't claim to own it, but I swear I used this phrase for a long long time... "You can't polish a turd".

    You have to take a Dutchman as he means, not what he says.

    We grow too soon old and too late smart.

    It's colder than a welldigger's nose in the Klondike.

    That's so long ago that the Big Dipper was still just a cup.

    It's so hot out that the Robins are pulling the worms out of the ground with potholders to keep
    from burning them.

    It's so hot, the farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep from laying hard-boiled eggs.

    It was so windy I saw a chicken lay the same egg three times.

    A cat washing it's face means company's comming.

    Sometimes in a crew of carpenters when a new guy starts, and it's his first day on the job, one of the carpenters
    will tell him to keep his eye out for any nails with the head on the wrong end. He will tell him not to throw it
    away because it is for the other side of the house.
