When you are doing something with a certain, not too common tool, or something that you do not see very often, and someone says "What is that?" Some people will get smart and say, "that is an eyecatcherformedelers" ;D

I read the whole thread to see what was there so I didn't repeat.

My dad is not a patient man when he is working. So he had a few good ones. "C'om on Grandma was slow but she was old!!"

My grandmother used to say, "Don't have a conniption."  I hadn't heard that expression since she passed away in the late 1980's until last week when an Amish woman was describing how her husband would react to her not getting home on time.  Her exact words, "He'll be throwing a conniption fit."   :D

I was just trying to think of some of the ones my grandpa "pap" uses. The ones that stick out are "fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." and "You're either gunna have to get tougher or smarter son." A friend of mine always used to say "if ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we'd all have a merry Christmas"
