General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

Much can be said about how our present day lives are much better, much easier than in years past.  Maybe that’s true, but somewhere along the path we have lost the gentleness and simple ways of life.  I hope you truly enjoy the following pictures and accompanying words.  For those who can truly remember these words, may the smile they bring not be limited to your mouth but transcend to your heart.  For those who have no memory of these types of phrases…well, ask those who do recall them what other memories they might share.  OK…OK…enough of my words.  Let me step aside so you can “mosey on by” and enjoy some words of yesteryear.


Be sure to refill the ice trays, we’re going to have company.  Watch for the postman, I want to get this letter to Willie in the mail today.  Quit slamming the screen door when you go out!  Be sure and pull the windows down when you leave, it looks like a shower is coming up.

Don’t forget to wind the clock before you go to bed.  Wash your feet before you go to bed, you’ve been playing outside all day barefooted.

Why can’t you remember to roll up your britches legs? Getting them caught in the bicycle chain so many times is tearing them up.  You have torn the knees out of that pair of pants so many times there is nothing left to put a patch on.

Don’t you go outside with your school clothes on!  Go comb your hair, it looks like the rats have nested in it all night.  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.

Put a dish towel over the cake so the flies won’t get on it. Quit jumping floor! I have a cake in the oven and you are going to make it fall if you don’t quit! Let me know when the Fuller Brush man comes by, I need to get a few things from him. You boys stay close by, the car may not start and I will need you to help push it off.

There’s a dollar in my purse, get 5 gallons of gas when you go to town. 
Open the back door and see if we can get a breeze through here, it is getting hot.

You can walk to the store; it won’t hurt you to get some exercise.  Don’t sit too close to the TV. It is hard on your eyes.

If you pull that stunt again, I am going to wear you out! Don’t lose that button; I’ll sew it back on after a while.

Wash under your neck before you come to the table, you have beads of dirt and sweat all under there. Get out from under the sewing machine; pumping it messes up the thread!  Be sure and fill the lamps this morning so we don’t have to do that tonight in the dark.

Here, take this old magazine to the toilet with you when you go, we are almost out of paper out there. Go out to the well and draw a bucket of water so I can wash dishes.  Don’t turn the radio on now, I want the battery to be up when the Grand Ole Opry comes on.

No! I don’t have 10 cents for you to go to the show. Do you think money grows on trees?  Eat those turnips, they’ll make you big and strong like your daddy.  That dog is NOT coming in this house!  I don’t care how cold it is out there, dogs don’t stay in the house.

Sit still! I’m trying to get your hair cut straight and you keep moving and it is all messed up.  Hush your mouth! I don’t want to hear words like that! I’ll wash your mouth out with soap!  It is time for your system to be cleaned out. I am going to give you a dose of castor oil tonight. 
If you get a spanking in school and I find out about it, you’ll get another one when you get home.

Quit crossing your eyes! They’ll get stuck that way! Soak your foot in this pan of kerosene so that bad cut won’t get infected.  When you take your driving test, don’t forget to signal each turn.  Left arm straight out the window for a left turn; left arm bent up at the elbow for a right turn; and straight down to the side of the door when you are going to stop.

It’s: ‘Yes Ma’am!’ and ‘No Ma’am!’ to me, young man, and don’t you forget it! Y’all come back now, ya hear.  I truly regret some of you are young enough that you missed out on most of these great memories!!!  

During the American Revolution 30% of the people fought and founded a Nation. The other 70% were apathetic

 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” -Isaiah 40:31

  1. “I need a quarter for the phone booth.”
    “There’s the water fountain!”
    “Go play in the sandbox.”
    “I’m going to the store…”.

    • Thanks for adding a few more, Marlene. Just wonderful, and I bet collectively we could come up with still more!! I remember my mom saying, “you will get nothing else to eat until you finish your supper!” If there was such a thing as Child Protective Services at that time, I doubt it would have made any difference calling them. How about this…as my mom was administering IVORY Soap down my brother’s and my mouth, “You will chew every last bit and NOT throw-up or you will eat another bar. You Don’t lie to anyone, especially your Mother!” Or try this one…”Don’t forget to wash behind your ears, I’ll check, and I don’t want to see dirt there that can grow an onion!” How about this one…”You will eat ALL of your dinner and be grateful for food to eat. There are starving kids in Ethiopia who have NO food and would be grateful to eat your dinner!” I had no idea where or what Ethiopia was, much less kids lived there and would eat the squash on my plate. I debated about whether or not I should ask my mom if we could share the squash on my plate with those starving kids?! My mom was a terrific mom of the fifties, and had grown up with brothers who taught her how to play football, as she taught my two younger brothers and me. As loving and doting as she was, she was ALL MOM, she could take you down in a heart-beat if you became a “wisen hymer.” ~LJR
