I thought it appropriate that we never lose sight of our heritage. I have heard a lot of cutsie sayings and quick comebacks in my life. One of the best I recently heard comes from Charlie. He and I were discussing technology and older folks. Anyway, here it is. I hope you guys come through with some good ones.

My 84-year-old dad just got an iPhone. Talk about a lost ball in high weeds…..

I remember helping dad replace brakes on his car and after tightening the lug nuts he asked if they were tight enough. I asked how tight? He said, “Tighter than a bear’s butt in a swarm of bees.”

Heard often on the jobsite;

the painter will fix it.

When something is out of plumb or askew;

Ray Charles could see that!

Or;

dumber than a box of rocks,

couldn’t pure p!$$ out of a boot with the instructions on the heel,

that’s finer than frog hair,

you can’t make a Cadillac out of VW parts
