When we were kids in the projects my brother and I had the job of bringing in the coal from the "coal bin" on winter mornings.

Don't forget the GUM BANDS for your paper route. 75 papers during the week, 120 on Sunday earned $5.00

I also delivered the November 3, 1948 Chicago Tribune with the banner that read "DEWEY WINS"

There is a town in N. Fl called Keystone. We went to the police station the other day to buy a tag for our RV. I couldn't help but laugh when a Keystone cop took care of us.

Sawbuck.

Rags to riches.
A penny saved is a penny earned
You can't light a fire when the wood's all wet (or make a silk purse out of a sow's ear)

And my personal favorite:

Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill

I'm only 27, and I know a great deal of these. I'm lost when it comes to my generation, and those younger than me (and a few older ones too!). I have never understood them. I would get along better sitting around a campfire with all the fine folk on this site than I would with anyone my age.

I spent a lot of my spare time with my grandfather at his camp, and out in the wilderness and on Lake Michigan. While most people my age and younger can't even drive a car correctly, I was out as a teenager driving the old 8N plowing up the rye field for the deer.

And work hard? Trust me, they don't know what that phrase means. The gentleman I am working on my weekends (aka no days off) for in trade for his motorhome didn't expect me to get much done at first. He figured it would take us the entire weekend (9 hour days) to strip off the old skirting on a mobile home he was going to rent out. We had it off and ready to re-frame the first day! Really shows how lost my generation is.

I'll stop rambling now haha.

Not a phrase but something we did- take you broken bike with the banana seat and weld (braize with coat hangers) an extra set of forks on to extend the front to make a chopper! Didn't work on the homemade jump very well but sure was fun!

Ride the bike on the top of the concrete sidewall of the bridge- if you made it the whole 150 ft everyone looked for pop bottles to buy you a soda if you didn't they would line up on the bank of the river to help fish you out of the creek 30 ft below!

"He doesn't know whether to S**T or go blind."

"You can find sympathy between S**t and syphilis in the dictionary"

"Cat" used to reference a man.

"Talked Turkey" was a serious discussion.

When you wanted to play with someone, you "Called for them". Nowadays you have to arrange a "Playdate".

I miss how simple things were when I was a kid. Funny how I'm more respectful of people older than me than kids are of me. (Of course my kids would have "their rears worn out with a switch" if I ever heard them being disrespectful. )
