My grandma always says an odd thing "See ya on the next round."  I vaguely recall a story about a relative being chased around their house by an angry neighbor. And yelling to her that phrase and it stuck with her all these years.. Way funnier when she tells it..

One day when I was with a friend he spotted a rather skinny fellow across the street.  My friend said to me "look at that feller there.  He's got arms on him like a knot in a piece of twine".  I sure had a good laugh that day!

Just thought of another

'she could eat an apple through a picket fence'


Ok, now I need another cup of coffee! :laugh:
