    OT: Things you don't hear much anymore...

    Be sure and refill the ice trays, we are going to have company after while.

    Watch for the postman, I want to get this letter in the mail today.

    Quit slamming that screen door!

    Be sure to pull the windows down when you leave, it looks like it might shower -- and bring in the clothes on the line, too.

    Don't forget to wind the clock before you go to bed.

    Wash your feet before you go to bed, they are nasty from playing bare footed outside all day.

    Why can't you remember to roll up your pants legs? Getting them caught in the bicycle chain so many times is tearing them up.

    You have torn the knees out of that pair of pants so many times there is nothing left to put a patch on.

    Don't you go outside with your good school clothes on!

    Hang up your Sunday School clothes, you know you need to pass them down to your brother in good condition.


    Go comb your hair. It looks like the rats have nested in it all night.

    Be sure and pour the cream off the top of the milk when you open the new bottle. I need it for baking and Pa's coffee.

    Take that empty bottle to the store with you so you won't have to pay a deposit on another one.

    Put a dish towel over the cake so the flies won't get on it.

    Quit jumping on the floor! I have a cake in the oven and you are going to make it fall if you don't quit!

    Let me know when the Fuller Brush man comes by, I need to get a few things from him.

    You boys stay close by, the car may not start and I will need you to help push it off

    There is a dollar in my purse, go by the service station and get five gallons of gas when you start to town.

    Open the back door and see if we can get a breeze through here, it is getting hot.

    You can walk to the store; it won't hurt you to get some exercise. Maybe you will learn to be more careful with your bicycle.

    Don't sit to close to the TV it is hard on your eyes.

    If you pull that stunt again, I am going to wear you out!

    Don't lose that button, I will sew it back on after while.

    Wash under your neck before you come to the table, you have beads of dirt and sweat all under there.

    Get out from under that sewing machine, pumping it messes up the thread!

    Do you want to go get me a switch?

    Be sure and fill the lamps this morning so we don't have to do that tonight in the dark.

    Here, take this old magazine to the outhouse (toilet) when you go, we are almost out of paper out there.

    Go out to the well and draw a bucket of water for me to wash dishes in.

    Don't turn the radio on now, I want the battery to be up when the Grand Ole Opry comes on.

    No! I don't have five cents for you to go to the show, do you think money grows on trees?

    Eat those vegetables; they will make you big and strong like your daddy.

    That dog is NOT coming in this house! I don't care how cold it is out there, dogs just don't come in the house.

    Sit still! I am trying to get your hair cut straight and you keep moving and it is getting botched up.

    Hush your mouth! I don't want to hear words like that. I will wash your mouth out with soap again!

    It is time for your system to be cleaned out, I'm going to give you a dose of Castor Oil in the morning.

    If you get a spanking in school and I find out about it, you will get another one when you get home.

    Quit crossing your eyes! They will get hung that way!

    Soak your foot in this pan of coal oil so that cut won't get infected.

    When you take your driving test don't forget your hand signals each turn. Left arm straight out the window for a left turn, and left arm bent up to the sky at the elbow for a right turn and straight down to the side of the door when you are going to stop.

    It is "Yes, sir!" and "No, sir!" to me and your elders young man, and don't you forget it!

    While we are at Aunt Mary's and Uncle John's you kids eat when the adults get though and I don't want to hear "I don't like this stuff". You better keep your mouth shut and eat everything on your plate.

    Young man if I hear you repeat one word of this I will beat the daylights out of you, do you understand that?!!

    With energy costs skyrocketing quite a few of the above saying will become common again.

    Our State Legislature just passed a bill, and the governor signed it, requiring HOA's to allow clotheslines and other energy saving devices - and most of these were things we had in the 50's, such as evaporative coolers instead of air conditioners, etc.
    or solar devices a la the Jimmy Carter era.

    "(I) AN AWNING, SHUTTER, TRELLIS, RAMADA, OR OTHER SHADE
    STRUCTURE THAT IS MARKETED FOR THE PURPOSE OF REDUCING ENERGY
    CONSUMPTION;
    (II) A GARAGE OR ATTIC FAN AND ANY ASSOCIATED VENTS OR
    LOUVERS;
    (III) AN EVAPORATIVE COOLER;

    AND
    (V) A RETRACTABLE CLOTHESLINE."

    Also a solar energy/wind device can not be prohibited:

    Yep -- do you think we may be returning to a simpler time when there was just one car in the family, all the kids rode bikes, and summer evenings were spent catching fireflies in a jar?
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"

    Here's a dime, go get me a can of White Gas so I can clean these parts.

    Where's THE BELT!

    You're gonna have to choke it if you want it to start.

    Shoot, now it's flooded. Either pump it or choke it but not both.

    Stay out too long and you'll get Sun poisioning.

    Watch out for yer Grandpa's spit can.

    Is that price for a private line or a party line?

    Were you raised in a barn?
