    It was the slop bucket that got me ... and in our home it was the "Pigs Pail"! :)
    ------------------------------------------
    Sometimes where I come from the "slop bucket" sometimes meant something more like the thunder mug that was kept under the bed. With a tight lid. Which sometimes did not work that well. Which meant that if at first you didn't have to go out back, then try to wait till morning, but if not, then put that lid on TIGHT!!

    It don't make me no never mind. ==I don't care.

    He doesn't know his A%^& from a hole in the ground.

    He can't find his A%&* with both hands.

    He who laughs last, has a real slow mind.

    My get up and go got up and went without me.

    Cleanliness may be next to Godliness, but with kids it's next to impossible.

    Bless her heart, she's got a rear end two axe handles wide.

    I wonder if my dad has heard that. He is German and his folks immigrated from Germany.

    My grandmother and Mother always said " If a task is once begun, never leave it till it's done. Be it great or be it small, do it well or not at all.

    Old Sayings

    Beauty don't last but good cooking does.


    Lazy as a hound dog sitting on a tack.

    Mutton dressed up as lamb. (I'm not going to explain this one)

    A whistling girl and a crowing hen, both come to no good end.

    Don't squat down with your spurs on.

    I have enjoyed reading this and seen many of the sayings my Mom and Dad used to use. Here are two my Mom used all the time I didn't see:

    Don't throw the baby out with the bath water.

    It will all come out in the wash.
    Friends are the most important ingredient in the recipe of life.
