    Raining like a cow peeing on a flat rock.

    Slick as hot snot on a doorknob.

    Fits like socks on a chicken.

    He doesn't know his a** from his elbow

    Let sleeping dogs lie

    And if horses could pray it would rain carrots

    Mad as a wet hen

    Hot as a tar road in Tennessee

    Out of the frying pan into the fire

    Mom always said, "the hurrier I go, the behinder I get". I am finding that it is so very true.

    When we were itching or adjusting our underwear my dad would ask us if we were going to a movie, because we were picking our seat.
    When my kids were picking their noses, I would ask if they were digging For gold.

    I was blessed with 4 children… My last child was a challenge and I have always said to her that God knew what He was doing when He sent her last …. Because if she had been first she would have been an only child…… Raining cats and dogs… When I was a kid and would ask for something like money or a new dress etc. my mom would sometimes say…… WHAT do you think money grows on trees? If I had a nickel…… I would stand on the corner and make faces at the bank

    Don't forget to wash behind your ears. This is meant to say be true to your core beliefs, do good where it can't be seen and just because dirt can't be seen, it's still there.

    When someone is upset, my Daddy always said They can get glad in the same clothes they got mad in.

    When you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

    Another one that floated around our house was"stupid is and stupid does", and my sister always had "ants in her pants".
