    My mom worked in the mines with hard core men and she learned to talk the talk and walk the walk’
    One of her sayings was “It’s colder than a well diggers ass” and “ Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out” See no evil hear no evil Don’t get bent out of shape Sleep tight don’t let the bugs bite

    When my 3 DGD start fussing my DSIL tells them Cowboy up or go sit in the truck!
    My DD says I have to pee like a race horse.
    If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, than it must be a duck
    If its not broke don't fix it
    My grandmothers all time favorit Bless(his,her, there, it's) heart! The meaning was dependent on how she said it.

    Mom:
    When the kids finished eating: Magies vol, ogies toe!
    (little tummies full, little eyes close)
    When cleaning or doing dishes, and everyone helps: Vele hande maak ligte werk!
    (Many hands makes for light work.)
    When you give Mom lip: Jou mond gaan maak dat jou g@t slae kry!
    (Your mouth is going to get your a$$ whipped.)
    and
    my DH favorite is: There is no pills for stupidity.

    From my Grandmother: Be good and you'll always be happy.

    From my Mother: Never empty handed to the kitchen go. (If there is something that should be taken and put away from one room to another, do it!)

    From Me: I only chew my cabbage once. (Listen the first time - I do not repeat myself!!!!!!!!)

    From my Husband: Old age hurts!

    From our Son: It is what it is! (It's true!)

    Some of ours were:

    Don't sit there with your teeth in your mouth and your elbow half way up your arm.

    Oh dog's hind end.

    When someone sneezed "Scat there Tom and get your tail out the gravy bowl"

    When one generation leaves another one comes along.

    I gonna break your arm and beat you with the bloody end of the stump.

    My husband would play fight with the grands and when they would holler OH OH he would tell them I used to have a hound dog that sounded like that.

    Living in the mountains we always heard that the cows on the hill had two short legs.

    I used to walk to school and it was up hill both ways.

    Go ahead and I will make you think twice about doing it.

    Go pee up a rope.

    I must of put it in a crack where the devil can't find it.

    These are just some that pops off of the top of my head at the moment but I know there are more,.
