    I have one that helps me through bad times. You may remember "Time heals all wounds." but, "Time wounds all heels". It is one way that i can think of the people who have caused me pain will eventually get " theirs" in the end without coming out and causing problems. my counselor thought it was different and very appropriate......

    I got a kick out of hearing these says again, my Dad was from Ohio and my Mom from Kentucky. If someone startled my Dad he would say," you scared the tar out of me", or "what in tarnation are you doin? Mom was always saying, "Mercy", Don't be a selfish gut!"

    I just remembered another one, when he ate something he liked my Dad would say, "that hit the spot"!

    My mom always talked in euphinisms, never saying exactly what she ment, so you had to figure out what you did wrong.

    I love this thread! Heard most of the ones listed but I will give you a few more..
    "Dumber than a post". "You play You pay" (said when someone partied to hard the night before)
    "1/2 a brick short of a load". "Half a bubble off". "You see my eyes?" (grandma said when she was mad)
    Last but not least...."You're makin my jaw teeth hurt" (said when someone is irritating you, kind of like"biting my tongue".
