    "Sleep tight". I was near 50 before I found out the meaning. Comes from the days when beds had rope to hang the mattress on. Ropes 6" apart. The ropes would stretch. They made a "dealey" , made of wood that fit on the ropes. You would twist the ropes tight and tie it off somehow.
    Oh yea, and "Man can not live by bread alone...he must have peanut butter".

    My mom always would say that, too! Meaning, people talk, believe none of what you hear, only half of what you see, cause your eyes will lie to you.

    "if you want to double your money, fold it in half, and stick it back in your pocket"

    On having to do something difficult, like breaking up with someone, she would tell me: "There was once a little boy, wanted to cut his dogs' tail off, but he didn't want to hurt his dog, so he'd just cut off a little everyday".

    (Packerback, my mom said they couldn't wait for the country peddler to come around once a month. She would buy a pack of Dentyne gum for a nickel. When they run out of gum, or there was none left in their "spot" behind the door, they would chew on the pine resin off the pine trees. She was stringin tobacco at 3 yrs old, for 2 cents a day, in 1922.)
    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    My Mom used to say, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."

    She also would say, "If 'ands' and 'buts' were candy and nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas."

    Best,

    Our Auntie would say "tattle tale tattle tale hanging on a bulls tail" to which one of us kids would say,"when he pees you get a cup of tea"if another sibling was around they would add"when he poops you get a bowl of soup".


    She also kept a saying in sight in sitting room,"don,t talk about yourself,we will do that after you leave."

    Urine had a value for leather tanning and wool processing before other chemicals became common .

    My grandmother...

    take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.
    In for a penny, in for a pound.
    We complain about our shoes until we see the man with no feet.
    You're gonna eat a peck of dirt before you die.
    If wishes were nickels, beggars wold ride.
    and my favorite of hers was....Because the eyes in the back of my head were closed
    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against
    you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer,
    never give up then for that is just the place and time that
    the tide will turn.

    Harriet Beecher Stowe
