    In my grandmother's house, it was called a "slop jar" aka "chamber pot". No pigs involved.

    What goes over a snakes back comes back under his belly. If you're going to be dumb , you've got to be tough. Little children are suppose to be seen and not heard.(I was a talker)

    From my grandmother:

    "He can just get happy in the same pants he got mad in."

    "If it had been a snake, it would have bitten you."

    "Well, I never!"

    "If you're big enough to eat it, you're big enough to fix it."

    Another one we use often and joke about was, when cooking with her, if you asked her how much of something to put in or how long to cook something, her reply was, "Oh, whatever you think." I would say, "Give me a hint...do I use a teaspoon or three cups???"

    When my boys were little and fighting in the house, I would tell them to take it outside...I don't want blood on my carpet!

    I also like "A little bit of something is better than a whole lot of nothing!" "Even fat rats like cheese."

    And..."Nobody cares how much you know until the know how much you care."

    If you sleep with dogs you'll end up with flees.

    I'd rather be a cautious for 5 minutes, than dead for the rest of my life.

    I just read this one on the QB last week: "She thinks she's hot Sh** on a silver platter and she ain't nothin but a cold turd on a paper plate.

    Well smear my butt with honey and tie me to an ant hill. (Pat's favorite) or "butter my buns and call me bisuit"

    Wish in one hand and Sh*t it the other and see which one fills up faster --- kind of like don't hold your breath waiting

    A job worth doing is worth doing right.

    I brought you into this world and I can take you out. (Mom was always kidding, but the 4 of us kids believed her)

    I did not fall off the turnip truck yesterday.
