Old folks' pearls of wisdom
 
I heard two southern colloquialisms today I haven't heard in a while.

"There is no wisdom in the second kick of a mule".

"Never sleep with a mean person, you never know when you will fall in love".

What have y'all heard from the fogies that made you cock your head like the RCA Victor dog?

"You'd be hot too if you'd just come out of the oven".

Cemetery = "marble orchard"

I don't know if health care from a glass of whisky with a raw egg in it is a pearl of wisdom or a plea for help from the modern era...

In my best Aw Shucks voice,,,,,, I only made a comment about the opposite sex, if I had been a girl/female/woman/whatever I would have specified a man. Nothing personal at all. :rolleyes:

Back on track

From my 80 year old mother.

White trash, always trash.

And East Hill

I just figured out that my post, coming after yours could have been seen to have been aimed at you, and nothing could be further from the truth. I did not aim it at you. Sometimes I am dense but I sure did not want to insult you.

I've always been fond of "When you lie down with *****es you get up with itches."

When I was getting ready to move to Texas, I was excited about making up my own homespun wisdom. The best I came up with was "You can put your boots in the oven, but that don't make them biscuits." I'm not sure what it's supposed to mean exactly, but I would love for it to really take off.

"Let me tell you how the cow ate the cabbage."

Don't ask, I don't have a clue.
