Do you remember?

Hello everyone! Grover is busy this week with a “fly south for the winter” committee meeting. Therefore he did not have time to gather his usual humor for us to enjoy this Monday morning. So, in its place we have some phrases that you do not really hear much, if at all, anymore. We hope that you will enjoy this slight change of humor. So, sit back, relax and read on with your favorite cup of coffee!



~ “Be sure to refill the ice trays – we’re going to have company after a while.”

~ “Don’t forget to wind the clock before you go to bed.”

~ “Why can’t you remember to roll up your pant legs? Getting them caught in the bicycle chain so many times is tearing them up.”

~ “Be sure and pour the cream off the top of the milk when you open the new bottle.”

~ “Take that empty bottle to the store with you so you won’t have to pay a deposit on another one.”

~ “Let me know when the Fuller Brush man comes by. I need to get a few things from him.”

~ “You can walk to the store; it won’t hurt you to get some exercise.”

~ “Don’t sit too close to the TV. It’s hard on your eyes.”

~ “Go out to the well and draw a bucket of water so I can wash dishes.”

~ “No! I don’t have nine cents for you to go to the show. Do you think money grows on trees?”  

~ “It’s time for your system to get cleaned out. I am going to give you a dose of castor oil tonight.”

~ “Quit crossing your eyes! They’ll get stuck that way!”


I hope you enjoyed a little walk back in time this morning! Have a marvelous Monday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. β€œDon’t sit too close to the TV. It’s hard on your eyes.”
    Been a loooong time since Mother said that! Most of them I recognize, even if they were not exactly part of my growing up. Thanx for the day-brightener.

  2. Beautiful memories πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜
    I remember once we siblings were watching children’s program on our tv sitting “too close”, and the host said, “hey there, you three cute kids you are sitting too close to tv that it can effect your eyesight. Be like a good kids and keep a good distance, shabash* my kids.”
    We siblings literally thought that she was actually talking to us πŸ˜πŸ˜…
    Beautiful memories those were.
    Take care and stay blessed Sir Steve 😸😻😺🏡🌼🌹🌱🌞

    • So glad you enjoyed this Saba! Once when I was watching a children’s program the lady said Hi to me! I said, wow, how did she know I was watching? Actually she would say hi to different children, just saying a number of different names. She just happened to say my name that day. But I was so amazed! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή
      Thanks for the wonderful comment Saba! Have a lovely week and blessings to you! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜»πŸ˜ΊπŸŒžβ˜•πŸ‚πŸ

  3. Ah, metal ice cube trays with the handle to loosen them. Impossible to work.
    My dad had a Big Ben alarm clock he wound up religiously.

    • It is always interesting to remember these different things from the past. Things sure change over time! Have a great day! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜»πŸŒžβ˜•β˜•


  5. Thanks Steve for sharing this nostalgic look at the past. I can vividly remember the Fuller Brush man, raising the weights on our cuckoo clock to keep it running, and keeping those ice trays filled. In fact, I am still refilling them.
