I think I will keep posting more of these posts.  I hate when you know a saying and recognize it and you can't remember who wrote it.  Or if you remember part of a saying and you know you've got it worded wrong.

I started a little black saying book when my mother was alive and all the relatives wrote in it.  It was our coffee table book. One night, two of my uncles were drunk and got writing in it.  It was really funny.

Maybe I'll dig out the book and those ones can be the next post.
