Rainy Day Sayings

Sayings -

Can't dance and it's too wet to plow.  Not sure where this came from but I imagine it is something from the rural area.

You kids quit piddlin' around and get some work done.  - This is a quote from Grandmother Bessie who didn't like kids very much.  (Or at least me as an example)

If the going is easy it is probably an ambush.  - I am not sure if this was Robert's Rules of Order or Kilroy's Rules of Warfare.  Either way, it is relevant.

The race doesn't always go to the swiftest, but that's a good way to bet. - Not sure who said this but in my family someone would say "Duh!"

Did you wonder why we drive on a parkway and park in the driveway? - I have no clue what genius giant thought that one up. 

We have Freedom of Religion or Freedom from Religion - How you act on this makes a world of difference in the meaning. 

Freedom of Speech makes no difference if you silence your critics because you don't like what they say. - I for one don't ever want to start down that slippery slope because I could be at the top of the list to silence.

One of the rules for individuals is that income must be greater or equal to outgo. - How come the Government isn't held to these standards.

Never ask a man how much something costs if you don't intend to buy it.  -  This is especially true of cars that have been restored by a guy who's wife doesn't watch the outgo.  Most people see the shinny chrome at car shows and all I see is Green.

If people didn't die, we would be up to our armpits in really old people. - Not a really big motto, but food for thought. 

I wish I could duplicate the exact saying but Hilliel the Elder, a Rabbi form years ago said something that went:

Be careful of what you say, it may become your thoughts.
Be careful of your thoughts as they may become your actions.
Be careful of your actions as they may become your character.  

So, if you don't want to go places where you don't want to go, don't say things you don't really mean.

Lastly, don't squat if you are wearing spurs. - Quoted by a guy that never wore spurs

Kid, while you are up would you get me another beer? - Grandma Erma from her lounger on the front porch in Arkansas.  You would have loved her too.
