Hand-me-downs…

There are family pass-alongs from Dad’s family, and Mom’s, or others!

“Etiquette or no etiquette, I am going to saucerize my tea.
I’ll be damned if I am going to burn my guts!”

“It’s time for lunch…I don’t know what it is…whatever it is…it’ll be good.”

“Close enough for whom it’s for.”

“It’s a damn poor dish wiper that can’t get a dish clean.”

“Do you know how much that would cost downtown? You couldn’t even get this downtown.”

“Ready on right, ready on the left, fire when ready Gridley.”

“I’ll eat what you eat.”

“They couldn’t fit you in (at the barber/beauty shop)?”

“Poke me with a fork, I’m done.

“I have to get up early in the morning so I’ll have to sleep fast.”

“If you think that we will miss you when you are gone, just throw a rock in the water
and see how fast the hole fills in.”
“Tilly went with the Ashman.” Great Grandpa Moehrke

“Go ahead, you’re in a bigger hurry than I am. I’ll see you up a tree!” Great Grandpa Moehrke

“The man who loans his tools isn’t here.”
