    Idle hands are the Devil's workshop. (that is why we quilt!!)

    Hold her Newt, she's heading for the buckwheat!!

    Pull yourself up by your bootstraps!

    This is such a great topic!! Thanks for the memories, although it makes me sad that my Gramps and my Mum are gone....

    An elderly neighbor used to say, "Handy as a pocket on a shirt".
    And "the needle doesn't have thread". (when someone was slow witted.)

    You can choose your actions, but you can't choose the consequences.

    Waste not, want not.
    Anger destroys the vessel it is carried in.
    If the shoe fits - wear it!
    Monkey see, monkey do!
    Not the brightest lamp in the room.
    What goes around comes around.
    A penny saved is a penny earned.
    Don't spit up in the air, it will hit you in the face. (Don't be so cocky!)
    Slow and easy wins the race.
    Saints preserve us.
    Don't criticize him until you walk a mile in his shoes.
    Beauty is only skin deep.
    Live, love and laugh often.
    Life is short. Don't waste it!
    He walks to his own drummer.
    You are going a mile a minute. (Slow down.)

    Don't cut off your nose to spite your face.
    Up sh*t creek without a paddle.
    Might as well spit into the wind. (your action is going to come back on you)

    I have laughed out loud at some of these and I remember quite a few. My mom was a bit different, she said many of these. Here are a few more that I did not see.

    S??t or get off the pot. (when someone could not make a decision

    Can't never could do nothing.

    If someone had something she wanted...she would say "I wish I had that and I wish they had a feather up their butt and we both would be happy.

    She also had a poem that she would just say out of the blue

    "I'm so tired and I'm so sore
    Ain't gonna do it for a nickel no more
    15 cents is my price...for a quarter, I'll do it twice.

    SHOESHINE! Now what were you thinking?
