"month of Sundays"

Example;

It'll take me a month of Sundays to split all that firewood.

That's a good one that I haven't heard in a coons age!

WM Fritz,

    I used to tell my son back when we had goats and when we had real bad weather I'd move our goats into his room except for the smell then I'd tell him, "Oh well, they'll get used to it after a while."

That was my Grandmother's favorite expression, Sprucegum.  One day she yelled that at my sister and me, and my sister in complete sincerity, lifted her arm and sniffed her armpit area and said to me, "I must have a Presbyterian under my arm."

Pertaining to be the wiser, "The old coon walks last" The old coons will let the young coons walk across a log etc. If they make it, then the old coon will go ahead and cross.
