They weren't PG though, and I got in trouble for repeating them.

Ol' Poppie used to say, "it's rainin' pitch forks and n***** babies!"


He also used to tell me to stick the blade of my pocket knife into the ground before cutting any food with it - because the dirt would sterilize the blade.

My other grandfather would say, "A place for everything and everything in its place".

Both of them loved Jesus and followed Him until the day they died. I expect it will be a great joy when I get to worship with them around the throne of the Savior. I hope I have sons and grandsons with me there and then, too.


What from Christ that soul can sever,
Bound by everlasting bands?
None shall take thee
From the Strength of Israel's hands.

Gpa was an onery ol man, and the best man I ever knew! My gpa had many, 2 of my favorites were:

I wish I had that(speaking of a tractor or a truck or something similar) and he had a feather up his arse and then we’d both be tickled

It’s best to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt!

I once hired an old man who I learned to love like he was my Grandpa. Harry came up with several sayings in the several years we wored together.
The one that I remember best & I still use is "To each his own said the old woman as she kissed the cow."

My dad had some corny sayings I recall over my lifetime.

Three that stand out:

Son you will be a man before your mother is.

When driving past a cemetery dad would say how many people are dead in that graveyard.

Boy if you are going to play with the Owls you gotta fly with the Eagles.

Tighter than a bulls butt at fly time
Put a little fur around it.
About a large woman: If she was hauling (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) she would have to make 2 trips.
& when he saw a woman on a bicycle he would say "She is peddling (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman)"

Pop - "She had a face that would stop a nine day clock" (no idea what a nine day clock is)\
"If it ain't broke, don't go trying to fix it!"

MomMom - Jurtle it! (when something was stuck like a door, or the faucet leaked,( figured it was jiggle, turn, twist, wiggle all in one)


Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure

Marry a girl with a tractor. She is so ugly,she would scare a dog off a gut wagon! You move any slower,we will have to call the undertaker! Neighbor's mother always said,"if you kids don't settle down,I'll punch you blind"

Nine day clock is a clock you’d have to wind every nine days. That is pretty funny!!!
