:laugh: I enjoy many of the colloquial sayings I've heard in Texas. Perhaps they are indigenous to the whole South, but they say volumes about a simpler time.

One of my favorites is: "He's all hat and no cattle." :ohmy:

Please let us know your favorite(s). Ones we can use in mixed company, of course.

My grandmother's favorite summer saying was:

It is hotter than the hinges of hell.

I don't know if it came from Texas, but I heard it here first.

It's so flat out west of Lubbock you can look out over the horizon and see the back of your head. :ohmy:

He's about as useless as tits on a boar hog.

Sorry, admin, about the crassness. It's not one I say, but I have heard it often.

"Shoot Fire"
"I'm gonna git the razor strap after you" (my grandmas favorite-....she never did)
"Tighter than Dicks hat band."(but to get the full effect you have to combine 'tighter' and 'than' together.)
"Fatter than a town hog"
"knee high to a grasshopper"

Fix'n....

As in: "I'm fix'n to go to town".

Bless-his-heart.

" He aint the sharpest knife in the drawer, but Bless-his-heart, he tries real hard".

Give me some sugar.

When we visited Grandma, and she wanted to greet us with a kiss, she would say: "Come over here and give me some sugar".
Why let the truth stand in the way of a good fish story?
