The owner of the store in the late 1960's remembered him.

    One of his favorite sayings was:

    "Believe nothing that you hear, and only half of what you see."
    That saying is apparently older than I thought it was.

    Yeah that is the trouble with Texas, we have a saying for everything. Closer you get to the border we may have a story for every situation as well, half the time they do not even apply.

    Thats why everything takes twice as long on a south texas ranch, tell a damn tumble weed a story if it will sit still long enough.

    I've heard all of your sayings but for worn slap out and catfish with a tick.
    I think Jerry Clower may be the one who used to say it was so hot and dry they saw a cloud of dust in the creek and it was catfish feeding.
    My mom and aunt from Arkansas said I'll swan when they were surprised. This guy has an explanation for this phrase. I wondered if it was related to swooning.

    My old man could talk your leg off. And he was a country preacher to boot. So us kids got the practice sermon on the way to Fowler, Colorado, then we got the actual sermon, then the highlight reel on the way home. Not that it stuck.
    He did have that Texas gene.

    One from my Dad, always used as a warning shot across my bow when I wasn't doing what he wanted:
    "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink... but you can make him wish to hell he had!"

    And one from my mother
    "Don't make me stop this car!"

    And from my grandmother
    "You wanna cry? I'll give you something to cry about!"

    Just to make the record clear, lest you get the impression they were child abusers, they are all gone now and I miss them terribly. They were all kind, loving people who never really followed up on any of their "threats".
