Another one of my Mom's sayings that I am ***really*** feeling at the moment:
"All my get-up-and-go got-up-and-left!"

I tell my grandkids that if they don't behave I will beat them with a wet noodle.
My son I tell I am going to beat him round then square then back normal again.

I would tell my kids I was going to knock them into next week if they didn't behave. When our daughter would roll her eyes I would yell, honey get your screwdriver, her eyes are loose again. And if she would huff, I would ask if she was having trouble breathing and if I should call 911. Do you see a pattern? Didn't have as much trouble with our Great kids now. Told our daughter I was really sorry. Bible says you can give your kids nothing better than a good name. So sorry I didn't name you Iwanna Ineeda. Seemed that was all that ever came out of her mouth, I want and I need.

It's not fair, neither is a black moustache ( in Scotland fair is used to describe light hair)

A task done only half way will become doubles as you have to do it over , correctly the second time.
My little sister was taught this :: If a task is once begun, never leave it till it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.

My father always believed:Give a fool enough rope to hang himself and he eventually will.

My Dad would never let us get away with being afraid to do something. He told us that "It's only difficult the first time -"

He also asssured us that we could do anything that we truly want to do - just figure it out and then do it! I am so grateful for his words of wisdom. My children and grandchildren all follow Grandpa's ideals.

My father-in-law always said, don't lend anything you can't afford to give away. So true.

The hurrier I go- the behinder I get! This is SO true- When I rush I drop things, trip over my own feet, etc.
