Maybe not old but I saw a cute bumper sticker today "When I die please bury me at the Mall so my wife can visit my grave." :D

   I heard a guy tell my dad one time "It sure is dry. I bet that's the lowest that river has ever been." Dad told him, "Nope, when I was a kid one time it got so low we had half grown bluegills that did not know how to swim and and when you'd catch one all the catfish had ticks and fleas on them."

If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a WEEK. . Quite from Theodore Roosevelt
We have a lot of good boys and girls in harms way

Had a very good friend of the family went to church with us when I was growing up who was a logger. Use to like to ruffle my hair and say," hello rosebud" and when asked why rose bud he would say," because you're a real blooming idiot" and he would do it with the biggest grin. I miss that Ole guy.
One of my granddad's favorite sayings was,"better to be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt."
Just an ole farm boy takin one day at a time.

Don't let the facts get in the way  of your opinion!
If you  don't know where you're going, you'll probably end up somewhere else!
