Dad's words...

I saw a scrapbook layout today that got me thinking about some of the things that my dad always said when we were young, and still does today. I just want to list some of them here while I'm thinking about it.
"It's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick"=look on the bright side, be optimistic.
"Are you red-eyed?"=are you ready?
"Oh, horse collars!"="Oh bologna!"
"How y'all are t'night?"=from Justin Wilson, I think...Dad's favorite comedian.
"Rootin' Tootin' Raspberries!"=I'm not actually sure what this one means...
"Well, I'll be dipped!"
And he used to sing to me, "Annie Fannie, daddy's little fatty, bread and butter 20 times a day!"
