    I've heard that the origin of the ol' saying, "I'll be there with bells on", came from the days of horse and wagons. The wagon masters used to have bells on their wagons so they could be heard while traveling the trails at night. Often times the wagons would break down and the wagoner would need the help of another to get going again. If you needed help from someone else, the custom was to give the person that helped you, one of your bells. To state that you'll "be there with bells on", means you won't have a problem being there and you'll even help others along the way.

    Don't know where he got it, but my grandpaw (Native American bounty hunter from Louisiana, who worked Oklahoma and Texas back in the 20's and 30's) always told us kids:

    "Believe nothing that you hear, and only half of what you see."
    "When under trial, let no one say: 'I am being tried by God.' For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone. . . . Do not be misled, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect present is from above, coming down from the Father of the celestial lights, who does not vary or change like the shifting shadows." --- James 1:13, 16, 17

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    "Piss poor" Came from a time when people would sell their urine for tanning leather.
