Need Some " Old Time Sayings "

PostBy: theo On: Sun Jan 16, 2011 12:22 pm

Morning All, I need some old time sayings that maybe your father or grandfather use to tell you when you were a kid. I'll give a example such as, The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse get's the cheese! Also, Some minds are like concrete, thoroughly mixed up and permanently set ( My Father use to tell me that! ) Anyone know of a site that has sayings of this nature on the internet? Let's hear what you can remeber of some old sayings, I need to hear some so i can pass them on to the younger generation.

You can't get blood out of a turnip. Leave well enough alone. And my grandmother(pa dutch) would say " OH yamma yaa" I believe that was "oh my yes". Belly up to the bar boys.

My father always tells me "I forgot more than you know". Yet, he still asks me questions.

How about," There's no use in being stupid without showing everyone" Aways say that when my sons do something stupid. And " Are your mirrors all painted black". :)

measure with a micrometer, mark it with chalk, cut it with an ax.
Don't sweat the small stuff, and it's ALL small stuff.
'harder than the hinges of hell
'colder than a well-diggers butt'
Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence
he doesn't like anything,, he even doesn't like how the cow chews her cud
hotter than a $1.00 'girl' on friday night.
more nervous that a '$1.00 girl' in the confessional.
older than a witches t.t
Stirring 'sh*t' only makes it stink worse
don't throw rocks if you live in a glass house
You'd gripe if you were hung with a new rope
You can't wean a car/truck, keep gas in it.




I'll keep trying to remember more.
