Some sayings I have heard from my youth describing another person- They are...
Smart as a whip
Strong as a bull
Wise as an Owl
Swift as a Deer 
Sure footed as a Goat
Loyal as a Dog
Cunning as a Fox

Never give up!
Every time I hear that, I think of the stork swallowing a frog with the frog 1/2 out of the beak with long arms and hands around the throat of the stork keeping it from being swallowed.

  Good things come to those who persevere!    My dad always said to me when I was about to drive away " Don't go over a hundred and fifty unless you have to"  That was his saying  :)

While driving @ 57 mph:
Ma: "Slow down!"
Granny: "I don't care if you floored it and we took off a flyin'!"

I always minded my Granny!

Not sure how common this on is, only heard it once..... from Dad. But it has stuck with me all these years.

"At least three times a day, ask yourself:

Who am I?
Where am I?
What am I doing?
What am I SUPPOSED TO BE DOING?!?"

from my brother Jim, which have also stuck with me for years. Very sound advice:


"Don't give advice, the wise don't need it, and the fools won't heed it."

Justin Wilson the Cajun comedian and cook had a saying to describe certain ladies: "She is so good looking I looked her up one side and right back down the same side!"

Unfortunately it is the unkind things we remember, they are usually funnier anyway!

One more saying found at many businesses and offices. "Everyone that passes through this doorway brightens my day. Some by coming, some by going!

There was quite an attractive co-worker that had recently been hired at a friend's workplace. The guys couldn't resist talking about her a little, nothing crude. Just as my friend commented she was cuter than a speckled pup she rounded a nearby corner, so close it was obvious she had heard the comment. When another guy in the group commented about it my friend stuck by his guns with the lady still in earshot. "If she doesn't know that is quite a compliment I feel sorry for her, she has never seen a speckled pup!"

Remember when we were all young and wishing we would hurry up and grow up so we could do what we wanted to, when we wanted to?

Well how's that working out for you?   ???
