    Maybe it's my southern roots, but old sayings always seem to convey a meaning better than plain words. In the south one can pretty much get by with saying almost anything about a person if the comment is prefaced by, "Bless his/her heart..." One of my favorite old sayings was taught to me by my Grandfather. It is one which to me is loaded with meaning and wise advice. It is, "Don't get into a braying match with a j a c k a s s !" Do ya'll have any old sayings you would care to share?

    my grandpap likes to say he's "busier than a one-eyed cat watching 9 mouse holes"

    I like the jackass one, its kinda like saying:

    "I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an un-armed person.."
