    Another one that floated around our house was"stupid is and stupid does", and my sister always had "ants in her pants".
    Whoops-it was supposed to be "stupid is as stupid does"

    Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.

    Coincidences are just God's way of remaining anonymous.

    When money stops coming in the door, love goes out the window.

    A hard one has no conscience.

    (In a tough spot): Like being between the bull and the barn door.

    (As a warning): Watch where you’re going or you might wind up someplace else.

    You can take a chapter from his/her book.

    Ever feel like a one legged man at an ass kicking contest?

    Slicker than cat sh** on a linoleum floor.

    My mama always said..." You got the same britches to get glad in that you got mad in". Another one was..."be sure your sins will find you out". I thought she made that one up but I found it in the bible one time. haha

    red sky at nightm sailors delight, red sky in the morn, sailors take warning.

    beauty is as beauty does.

    a penny saved is a penny gained.

    you can't put a button on an out house door.

    my parents went thru the heart of the depression. they would save any thing and ever thing "because I might be able to use it someday."

    LOOK with your eyes, NOT with your hands!
    whole milk separated when I was young, my father would say(as we shook up the milk)" STOP shaking up the cow sh*t!"- it was store milk, not from the farm!
    and mine to teenage twin(hormonal)boys,who were stronger than me, "REMEMBER, you gotta sleep, sometime!"-they were good kids!

    Lots of good ones here :-)

    How's about - looking or feeling "like 40 miles of bad road".

    That tastes good enough to make a puppy pull a freight train.

    One of my old favorites that I forgot to include yesterday.

    The Ex would always say this one

    When dinner was plain or lacked a main entree, his comment would be, " sh*t on a shingle".

    And one of my top favorite saying is
    "Two wrongs, don't make a right".

    Be home by "dark thirty", meaning thirty minutes after dark.

    Feel like I been rode hard and put up wet. ( horse people will understand that one)

    Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

    A rut is just a grave with the ends kicked out.

    And my very favorite, when my dad was really sick, he would say, "I have know people who felt worse than I do, but they are in the graveyard."

    I have two - one my dad used to say when someone was mad - You've got the same clothes to get glad in.

    Another one - "A stitch in time saves nine - don't know what it has to do with this situation - but - it's a good saying just the same" (he always thought this was so funny - I find myself saying it when something happens that would be easy to make a big deal about but shouldn't.

    Have a great day - blessings,
    Scherrie

    1.Don't let your aligator eyes overload your hummingbird your stomach.
    2. Any thing worth doing is worth doing right.
    3.To every man there openeth a way, of ways, and away. The high soul gropes the high way, the low soul gropes the low, and on misty flats the rest stroll to and fro, but to every man there openeth a high way and a low, and every man must decideth the way his soul shall go.
