Had an uncle who'd tell his slow son, "one of these days I'm gonna trade you for a horse, then shoot the horse..."

Granny used to say "if cow [I have typed a profane word that is automatically changed by the forum censored words program I should know better] were peaches we'd all be rich"....any time we'd wish we had something different.....

A fella I've heard of was so cheap, he has a drawer built into his kitchen table. Any relatives come over during supper, he's slide his plate and place setting in there, so the visitors wouldn't know he was eating and want to stay and have some..... I guess he was as tight as the bark on a tree in February.....

There are "old sayings... " and then there are "old cruel sayings" ....  I don't like the cruel ones.

Would take a cruel person to tell someone some of these that have been posted. IMO  just sayin....

If you ain't the lead dog the view never changes.

Someone was beat with an ugly stick.

If at first you don't succeed, so much for sky-diving.

She'd skin a flea for his tallow.

River sure is low - nope, I've seen it so low all the catfish had ticks and fleas (or We had half-grown bluegills that didn't know how to swim).

Oh-dark thirty.

Tom Selleck in an old western when surrounded by 25 armed opponents and asked by their leader "You think you can kill us all" and Tom replied "He's first, you're next. Do you really care after that?" (Of course that backed them down.)
