    Yeah, that one was on one of the trail at 6 Flags over Ga in Atlanta as I remember.

    One I saw as a kid was:

Ma loved Pa.
Pa loved Wimmin
Ma caught Pa with 2 in swimmin

I'm not saying it's a typical saying, but........

I remember when we were all still at home, I would hear my Mom say every once in a while: "I'm not going to tell you again", but she usually did!

Ah, the memories!

My Grandma Carson would call out when someone knocked on the door, "String's out, come on in."  So when I built the mud room onto our 5th wheel I put in a door with a string.

Someday I hope you have kids just like you, then you'll understand exactly what I'm going through now...........turns out my mom was right about this too.   

A customer of mine was told by his wife he had to keep an eye on his daughter and her boyfriend this past weekend so they didn't do anything "wrong", while they were out deer hunting, he asked why she didn't do this herself.    Her reply was because she was "his" daughter and the only reason she was concerned was because she was his daughter thus it would his fault if something were to happen that shouldn't happen.       

So he told his daughter and her boyfriend to not do anything that would upset her mother, because first she'd be upset with him, then shortly later she'd focus on "her" and to trust him, it wouldn't be pretty when she'd be that mad.      The way he told it was really funny, then he asked us, have you seen them, and we said, yes, they were out deer hunting dressed in orange and looking at each other and we think we think they each found the dear they were hunting for.      It took him a few seconds then he stated, my mom was right, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.       

Then we told him to not worry, we were pretty sure they were both looking hot and sweaty and winded due to walking and not other reason's.....................took him a few seconds to say, well then maybe she's more like her mother than me, if she'd be like me, there wouldn't be much walking involved to get hot and sweaty at that age. 

I told him to keep one thing in mind when it comes to teenagers, sex is heriditary  , chances are if your parents never had sex, neither would you...........he laughed then told us, maybe you should be the one to tell my wife that one, she's really not interested in anything I have say right now, most everything these days is my fault.

I told him to look at the bright side, if anything goes wrong, the husband is to blame and when things go right, the wife deserves the credit..........and behind ever successful man is a woman and behind her is a completely shocked mother in law.         

Then he told me, chances are if don't like your mother in law from the start, you'll wake up years later only to find out your wife turned into her and your then married to your mother in law.....I couldn't help it, I laughed at that one.   

He then asked, if everyone knew so much and kept telling us all the years we were growing up, why didn't we listen to any of them.   I told him it was because we were smarter than they were and we were going to prove them wrong.    He asked, hows it going for me, I told him about the same as it was going for him, we both laughed and then I told him I had to get back to work or the owner would fire me, he then said, slaves get sold, free men get fired.   

There were quite a few more but those I can't print.   

A man works from sun to sun, but a woman's work is never done.   Or the way my dad put it, a woman works from sun to sun but a man's work is never done, depends on who's telling it.   

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

If at first you don't succeed, you can always file bankruptcy and start over again.     I think it was supposed to be if at first you don't succeed, try again.   

Every neighborhood has a designated ahole, and if you don't know who it is, chances are its you.

Accidents do cause people.
