A couple I had heard before and a few I had not. I got a smile out of the WP as well as a few points.

Used near every letter on first puzzle & thought, oh no, but trudged on. Second much better & rest not bad at all. Glad I didn't bail, would have missed a few smiles

It's always interesting to see what puzzles are easier and which are harder for people around here. Clearly there are quite a few who had no trouble with it, while I, despite my Southern roots, found it to be uncommonly difficult, with lots of multiple possibilies and solutions that logic was useless in figuring out. And it did not get easier as it went on for me. Of course, there are plenty of times when the situation is reversed and I have much less trouble than many others, so I guess turnabout is fair play.

I took a couple of gambles on guesses.

It was not my lucky day.

Other than that, my day was fabulous. Thanks for asking.

I bailed with the first one as my 'Moma' (grandmother) didn't ever say that

I really had to think hard on this one and as most people know thats something I find hard to do.

Worst ever.

Can't think of a joke, just worst ever.

Sounds like a guy who may have had a bad experience on a river float through that area.

JNo, Miss Smarty Pants, I have wonderful memories of that area and its people, including one very heartfelt compliment that I have "a real purdy mouth".

My husband who grew up in West Virginia said he's never heard of anything even close to these sayings. They were fun.....but...

The key word on this one was "old". They were collected by someone who has studied old folk sayings --some were a hundred years old. I'm glad some of you found them amusing.

I picked a bad week to be a city boy. Not that that indicates anything wrong about the puzzle ...

I really enjoyed the puzzle, thanks Unsploofable. I was just thinking the other day about the many age old customs we have in our society and how their importance seems to be fading away. Thanks for including some of them here. God I hope I am dead before everbody forgets about what made us us.!!!

My first one was hitch in my getalong (which I misspelled as gitalong) and I thought it would be smooth sailing because I was old enough to know most of them. Not! BTW, I probably use the 'hitch in my gitalong' at least a couple times a week when I tell my body to get up and move and it does so but under protest for the first several steps.

Fun quiz.

My granny used to say she had a hitch in her gitty-up which of course didn't fit.
