    Did your Mom have certain sayings that you grew up hearing? Here are a few from my mother. "Waste not want not." I have lived my life by this one, and it has worked for me. "Sing before you eat, cry before you sleep." There was another one about if you did something you would marry a crazy wife. Life shows I didn't pay attention to that one.[​IMG] And then there was the one delivered by my Dad the day I threw the rubber snake into his bed. Picture this- him by the side of the road where he had chased me in his birthday suit fist upraised, "Boy you have to come home sometime."[​IMG] Post your family homilies or sayings.

    "Scoot the Boot" = Hurry up

    "If you're going to be dumb, you've gotta be tough" = Basically anytime we got hurt doing dumb things as kids... Which was a lot.

    "they're crazy as a sh*t house mouse" = Apparently mice in outhouses are crazy?

    All I can think of right now...I'll post more as I think of it.

    Another from my Dad. "Boy you better tell the truth. You're not smart enough to be a good liar." This one stuck too. BIRD, sorry, but it doesn't appear that your Mom's warning took.[​IMG]

    "Sometimes you have to thin the herd" = Usually meaning that person is dumb and shouldn't reproduce

    "Do as I SAY not as I DO" = Don't smoke even though I do.
