Great stuff. I work at a university and it is amazing what the kids have no clue when I say some things. Just the other day I mentioned something and referred to it as High Test, the student that worked for me was like what?
I think I AM GETTING OLD :oops:

My wife likes to use the expression "like flies on a rib roast" about something that is attractive lol.

Or my grandpa (bless his soul) would say, "useless as tits on a rain barrel".

That was a very neat read though, thanks. Pretty "top shelf" stuff there lol

I always get a laugh from the talking heads on tv news channels when one says "A hard road to hoe". It's pretty obvious they never worked a garden, and I wonder if they even know difference between a hoe and a ho.

But then when I was a trucker I encountered quite a few of the second type on the road, aka lot lizard. So I guess they could be called a road ho. BTW, I used to keep a women's purse laying on the dash where it could be seen from the ground. In some places that was the only way to get some sleep and keep them from beating the paint off the doors by morning.

But back to a garden hoe, back in the middle of the last century I met this gorgeous tall, long limbed girl with beautiful long blond hair, who had just recently found her way out of the backwoods of West By God Virginia. Driving past a huge field of corn nearly ready to harvest she say's "I'd sure hate to have to hoe all that corn." And she was absolutely serious. Got mad when I laughed.

Those hanging around street corners are what a friend used to refer to as, "Roadside scholars"

A sarcastic play-on-words of the term "a Rhodes Scholar".
