Thought I would add this photo of my great-Grandfather (on the left) and a family friend. This was taken in 1909 in an Oklahoma oil field.

HH means Handy Husband (he is). That saying came with him from Memphis. Maybe it's a local expression?

Nice photo, turtledove, but who are the people in the wagon?

For those of you unfamiliar with Frick and Frack, go here to see an explanation by Wikipedia.

In short, they were Swiss comedic ice skaters, but the "rest of the story" is interesting.

Buck and mudbug, both of you have me a-laughing!!! Buck, My great-Grandfather is the human on the left with the reins. the other human is a family friend that may be a distant relative; I got to dig a bit farther in the family archives. Although from the little bit in the photo, I do like the head of the bay better than that of the buckskin!! Mud, yup, they ain't a-rearin' but you could see how that would upset the little buggy they are in, lol!

I picked up a few sayings from my dad...

When asked something like when someone would see him again my dad will say, "Someday soon or Sunday noon."

When getting ready to leave after a visit, my dad often says, "Glad you got to see me."

When he has to go to the store to buy something he says he is going to the ____ store (whatever he is going to buy). "I'm going to the glue store." I'm going to lightbulb store." "I'm going to the underwear store."

When it is time to eat we all say it is time to "Wash your front feet."

Someone else already mentioned this one, but my mom used to say, "Hold your horses" a lot. I say that one now too.

One I just started saying one day when my daughter was younger was (when I'm talking to my daughter or a kid) "Okey Dokey Kidokey." (James says, "Okey Dokey Karaoke.").

When I asked for something and my Dad said, "Second Tuesday of next week.", I knew I wouldn't get it.
How about "Shoot fire and save matches"? My grandma never cussed, but came close with "Shooooooot!" or "Helllllp"
