My dad had a funny limerick. Not exactly an old saying, but still pretty old, and funny. He told it to me when I was a little kid, scared of going upstairs by myself.
I met a man upon the stair -
a little man who wasn't there.
I met him there again today.
I wish that man would go away.

A guy picked up his lumber EARLY today ( Sunday Morning ).
He was so excited he had actually brought logs out of his yard and got enough lumber to put board and baton on his shed.

He said, "I'm as happy as a Carp in a Septic Tank!".   :o :o :o

I'm thinking holy ........ :D :D :D :D :D

He was jacked!

I wonder if that's happier than a dog with a stick.

There are some really good sayings in this thread, one of my favorites that a friend used once.

"You can never go back and have a new beginning, but you can start today and create a new ending."

This thread is so lame that it only proves the old adage that "There's only three kinds of people in this world.  Those that can count, and those that can't!"
