    My favorite is "If its'gonna be , its' up to me"

    If you can't do the time, don't do the crime

    My mama always said..." You got the same britches to get glad in that you got mad in". Another one was..."be sure your sins will find you out". I thought she made that one up but I found it in the bible one time. haha

    red sky at nightm sailors delight, red sky in the morn, sailors take warning.

    beauty is as beauty does.

    a penny saved is a penny gained.

    you can't put a button on an out house door.

    my parents went thru the heart of the depression. they would save any thing and ever thing "because I might be able to use it someday."

    LOOK with your eyes, NOT with your hands!
    whole milk separated when I was young, my father would say(as we shook up the milk)" STOP shaking up the cow sh*t!"- it was store milk, not from the farm!
    and mine to teenage twin(hormonal)boys,who were stronger than me, "REMEMBER, you gotta sleep, sometime!"-they were good kids!

    Seldom in a woman,
    Never in a man... "

    Lots of good ones here :-)

    How's about - looking or feeling "like 40 miles of bad road".

    That tastes good enough to make a puppy pull a freight train.

    My father used to say about small steaks or sandwiches: that is as thin as the Dallas News!

    One of my old favorites that I forgot to include yesterday.

    The Ex would always say this one

    When dinner was plain or lacked a main entree, his comment would be, " sh*t on a shingle".

    And one of my top favorite saying is
    "Two wrongs, don't make a right".
