Whenever my mom asked great grandma "What is that?" Great grandma would answer "I put that there to catch meddlers"

I don't think ma got the joke until after great grandma passed away....

An old German saying, translated by my grandfather.

When a man with experience meets a man with money, the man with the experience gets the money and the man with the money gets the experience.

When ever my father got praised for anything, he would always say "Yep, no flies on me, that's for sure" or "The grass don't grow under my feet"

And then there's "The only thing wrong with that machine is the operator!"

I just heard this on an old episode of "Maverick".

he said…..A man is the only animal you can skin more than once.
In reference to beating another player twice at a big poker game.
I'm thinking......

I heard a new one for me yesterday.

"As fine as a frog hair split three ways". 

I don't care who you are, that is fine.

If I need a frog hair split, I always call Jake. 

I bet that Julio could make an awesome frog hair soup.

Poston could sell a $300 oak slab to a Frog Haired Dude. 

I might be back in the Shed-Design-Business soon after I receive your "gift"  :).  I might need a Snow-Load-Consultant.

One my 11 year old son just told me:

Whats the difference between roast beef and pea soup?

You can roast beef, but you can't pee soup!

We have all heard or used the expression"the rule of thumb for such and such is",well tonight my wife enlightened me as to where that one came from.
Seems that back in time it was illegal for a man to beat his wife with a stick larger in diameter than his thumb.She looked at my hands and said "I should have married a smaller man' She comes up with some dillies.

Enercraft was made in Canada and was bought out by Baker. There the same mill as there Baker 18. A nice well built mill.
