    LOL!! The father of my best friend in high school had served in the Merchant Marine during the war and had all sorts of sayings like that. :) Thanks for the memories!
    I don't remember my father ever saying that...but I'm sure that he thought it many times. ;)

    I forgot one until reading a reply that I made on another post elsewhere. "If you go looking for trouble, you'll probably find it." And believe me, I learned this one the hard way. I find that the older I get, the more I become like both of my parents. I was blessed. :)

    Stay safe, Emily

    A slight variation on that from my dad. “No need to go looking for trouble, it’s not that hard to find.”

    Where Dad came up with this I don't know. Seems that he said it prior to taking the family to the local drive-in.

    One for the money
    Two for the show
    Three to get ready
    And four to go.

    My Father was a house painter. One of his favorite expressions was:
    You don't have to smart to be a house painter, but it does not hurt.

    When we were both carrying something heavy, with him on one end and me on the other he would say, "Some SOB is not lifting!"

    Don't let him $#iT all over you, open your mouth.

    The best part of him ran down his mother's leg.

    If we had some ham, we could have ham and eggs, if we had eggs.

    He had a face that only a mother could love, on pay day.

    "Close the door you're letting all the bugs out"

    "Don't stare at it ! it's a refrigerator not a TV" his favorite when we would look in the fridge and try to figure out what we wanted to eat.

    "Were you born in a barn? "

    "If you would just slow down!"

    Normally right after some kind of accident from being too rambunctious.

    "The sooner you get started the sooner you'll get done." (I had a wee tendency to procrastinate...)

    "Apparently my pliers have grown legs and run away again. They better be back here in five minutes or you'll be buying a new pair out of your allowance."

    "Close that door! You trying to heat the whole outdoors??"

    "Turn the light off when you leave a room! You think electricity is free??"

    My kids make fun of my sayings. I must be old;
    "Got a hitch in my git-a-long" - arthritic hip.
    "It must be out in the North 40" - Far away from our location.
    "He sure is a long drink of water"- Tall
    "Good enough for the girl I go with"- Asked about the quality of work.
    "You gonna eat it or wear it?" Messy kids at dinner table.
    "That dog is so ugly he would be better looking if he walked backwards".
    "I am not gonna die, I'll just ugly away".
    "I'm so horny the crack of dawn excites me".

    Just a sample.
