My TT List

Thirteen Sayings You Don't Hear Any More

1} Be sure to refill the ice traysText Color, we're going to have company. { Now we have it automatically in our fridge.}

2} Don't forget to wind the clock before you go to bed.

3} Wash your feet before you go to bed, they are nasty from playing outside all day barefooted. { Now even on the beach, I hesitate to take my sandles off.}

4} You have torn the knees out of that pair of pants so many times there is nothing left to put a patch on. { And now for $50, you can buy them like that}

5} Don't you go outside with your good school clothes on! { I wouldn't leave the house if I didn't have Good cloth's on}

6 } Be sure and pour the cream off the top of the milk when you open the new bottle. { To me this sounds cool}

7} Let me know when the Fuller Brush man comes by, I need to get a few things from him. { Door to door salesmen....Wish they still came}

8} You boys stay close by, the car may not start and I will need you to help push it off.{ Poor Kids}

9} There's a dollar in my purse, get 5 gallons of gas when you go to town.

{In Oslo, Norway gas is $6.82 cents, In Venezuela it is .12cents a gallon}

10} Here, take this old magazine to the toilet with you when you go, we are almost out of paper out there. { Thank God times have changed, but when I was growing up I remember this.}

11} Go out to the well and draw a bucket of water so I can wash dishes. { Many times I had to carry water, I remember being 5 and caring the water before school, the bus came and I hid so the other kids would not see me, LOL , I had the day off school that day.}

12} I don't have nine cents for you to go to the show. Do you think money grows on trees? { Now days it's over $6. to go.}

13} If you get a spanking in school and I find out about it, You will get another one when you get home! { Yikes, nowadays that's abuse}

#13...there are still places that do this...with the parents' permission. I remember it, too...except that I never got into trouble THAT badly...

Patching the pants, carrying water, washing off the feet...I remember all of was simpler, but dang hard work!

Happy T-13!
