I recall my grand-dad calling the "trunk" a "turtle." As a small child I was always wanting to get the keys to his car so i could play with his turtle.

There was another I was going to comment on too.

Horsefeathers and Tits on a Boar are a couple I don't often hear much though I did hear that last one recently.

How about being "just about half a bubble out of plumb". I tell my wife that is her condition sometimes. She in turn tells me that I am "too old to cut the mustard anymore" Aaah, the joys of growing old.

My dad used to say "handy as a third handle on a pi$$ pot". Could never figure that out as a kid since we had real indoor plumbing.

Also $&!t or get off the pot. I wondered why someone would want to do that in a pot anyway. Hope no one is going to cook with it.

Any other phrases you use that are outdated?
Joke I made the other day:

Someone pulled in to the park with a trailer made by Keystone.

I ask if the plant security team was called "The Keystone Cops"


Detroit, MI has a road, Washington Bvld. it is (or at least was in 1980) one of the "Showplaces" in the city.. I conducted a short tour from the staff of one of the republican governors when the party had its national convention in Detroit that year. (Hams do not do politics, but we do handle communications, for either party in this case we worked with a fleet of mini-buses to haul governors and staff around Detroit and environs including Windsor)

There is a trolly that runs Washington Bvld down to the Ren-Cen in Detroit. There is a very lovely Catholic Church on the Bvld as well.

There is a very elaborate fountain.. Many advanced sensors, it responds to both light and sound among other things.. As I said, a Show place, at least in 1980.. I've not seen it since the turn of the century however.

The police foot patrol on that stretch of road was called the "Keystone Cops" dressed in the Keystone type uniform, and were trained to LOOK like the Keystone cops as much as possible.. They are also some of the best police officers in Detroit. The position was very competitive.

(They may look like Keystone Kops, but trust me. You pull any "Stuff" on their beat.. and your name will be BUSTED!!!!!)

You must never had to deal with an outhouse in the winter. As gross as it sounds, people kept a chamber pot under the bed so you didn't have to get all dressed to go out to the outhouse. Sometimes a second person had to go real bad and couldn't wait on the person on the "pot". How times have changed! I don't miss those days at all!
