    Default God willing and the creek don't rise

    My kid came home from school with some long complicated project, but one part was "Things that are family mottos."

    He came up with
    1. Jimmeny Crickets
    2. God willing and the creek don't rise

    God willing and the creek don't rise?! Where the hell did that come from?

    So, I'm just wondering, if any of you have crazy sayings. Because it reminded me of my grandfather who used to say "Yeah, you are funny like an open grave."

    Does "Get off the couch and get a goddamn job," count?

    J/K. No one ever had to say that in my family.

    I distinctly remember my Grandfather telling me "Hate people the moment you meet them, it saves time later".

    A old guy talking about why he treated his wife the way he did later in life, "When you catch the trolley, you quit running."

    My great uncle told me "know where you stand, otherwise you'll need to chase the bus."

    I think this relates, but he was really old and said alot of crazy things.

    "You look as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs."

    "These pants are like the Lyndonville Hotel, no ballroom."

    "I wouldn't piss on her if she was on fire."

    My Dad has never had great hearing so inevitably one us always had to tell him someone was at the door or the phone was ringing. His response was often "you must have ears like a sh[*******#000000]i[/COLOR]thouse rat".

    My old man says that one too, usually in relation to my mothers supernatural ability to suddenly stop being deaf when the word pub or pint is used in a conversation with me

    I'm not even going to fact check that. Because I soooo want it to be true.
