When someone would pass my Dad at a high rate of speed, he would shake his head and say;
I'd rather get to where I'm going 10 minutes late, than get to the grave yard 10 years early.

when my granddad and great granddad  would shut off the tractor or vehicle they would always say "fed and watered". they also called under brush in the woods and field scrub brush. I never made the connection til my wife ask me what kind of brush was on the side of the road and I said it was scrub brush and she laughed at me.  I have hundreds of sayings from my granddad! he was a great man!

As requested; I'm "green as a gourd" when it comes to saw milling. Another old saying.

Hahaha. That made me think of my Dad.

one of my first bosses told me after looking at something he didn't like "I looked at with my good eye, I looked at it with my bad eye, then I looked at it with my brown eye!" as he bent over.
