    I used to forget my kids' names and I would go through all of them. I would say...Syndy, Tina, Mistydawn, Hesid, Emeth, Charlie, Gus, CRYSTAL...whatever one you are, you have to go to sleep at some point and when you do, I will remember who Im looking for. LOL

    My grandpa used to say "Son of a sea serpent" instead of saying son of a B......

    If a task is once begun, never leave it 'til it's done. Be it great or be it small, do it well or not at all.
    Both my mother and Grandmother said this.

    We grew up in the sticks (another old saying, I guess), but to us the slop pail was for anything that could be passed to the hogs (although there was an extra can for coffee grounds and egg shells for the chickens) and the honey bucket was the chamber pot. We heard "waste not, want not" a lot.

    Lately I have been feeling what my Mema used to say, "I was born tired and had a relapse!"

    "Dig deep the puppy is in the bottom" said when dishing up a stew or something.

    "lower than a snake's belt buckle" said when feeling blue.

    "Your eyes look like two burnt holes in an indian blanket" said when you didn't look too good.

    "funnier than a two story outhouse"

    "two heads are better than one even if one is a cabbage head"

    "thats a heck of a note said the monkey as he farted in the tuba"

    "strung around like a mad woman's s--t"



    these gems are from my grams. I could go on and on and on......
