    A polite way to say GET OUT OF THE WAY when someone is blocking your view isÖ. Have YOU been drinking muddy water because I canít see through you

    I like it Jan. I also like 'don't try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig'

    My Grandmother used to say, "If you sew on Sunday you will pick out the stitches with your nose on Monday". Guess you shouldn't sew on Sunday???

When I was young I thought my Mom's old saying "Beauty is skin deep, but ugly holds it own" was so funny. Then I went to a reunion and guess what? She was right.
    I would say when going to work "another day, another dollar so they say".

    You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Never really figured that one out but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it. It takes pains to be beautiful. Pretty is as pretty does. The only thing you truly have to give is your word,when you give it,stand behind it. Never be noticed on a flying white horse. Never expect any more from people,than they are capable of giving.

    So many of these sayings sound so familiar to me. Some of my favorites are:

    Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone. Beauty fades away but ugly holds its own.

    Ugly as sin

    Guilty as sin

    As nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

    I can think of more but don't want to take up all the space.
    I have enjoyed hearing these sayings from all of you.
