I also remember the "Black over Bills mothers" one. If ever I asked what we were having for dinner (lunch) or tea (evening meal) the answer from my mum was invariably "A run round the table and a lick of the cupboard doors". A couple my grandmother on my mums side used to say regarding her own procrastination were "This won't get the stove black leaded" or "This won't get the babies bathed". Just within the small circle of family members who remember these sayings I have sometimes combined the two and said "This won't get the babies black leaded". Wink

Longford lad, nicely put, I also heard all of them as a child, but what of words of wisdom, even if unbelievable. I was told by my gran 'get your haircut' - I was in my late twenties, and had been suffering headaches for some weeks, gran said 'your granddad suffered headaches when he needed a haircut.' I cut my hair short, and no more headaches. Kept it short ever since. Even as a child feather pillows troubled me. I was told by my wife, no cornflakes - I had been suffering stomach pains for some weeks, missed cornflakes a couple of days, no pains. Never had a cornflake since. I was told by a friend, take zinc - a group of us seniors (I was late fifties) were discussing prostate troubles, friend said take zinc. Taken one zinc tablet each day since, the only thing I do take, no other medication, worked for me.
