Going Down Memory Lane

Take a gander at this list. If you have some age on you, it'll take you back to days of yore. A lot of things that were said, are just not said anymore, because things have changed so much. Thanks Betty, for forwarding this to me. I hope the rest of you will enjoy the memories...

  • 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 it's 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 on the 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 awhile.
  • 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 will 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!
Bring back any memories? It sure did for me!


Did you ever just wonder? ... If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

Joke of the Day
Once in a men’s locker room of a golf course a mobile rang, every body stopped to listen. The man picked up the phone and on line was a lady "Darling i saw a very beautiful dress Its only for $5,300 can I buy it?"

Man: Sure darling

Lady: And I saw a very elegant gold set for a $54,000

Man: Buy it sweetheart

Lady: And a decorative painting for our room how about that only $75,000?

Man: Of course, sweetie.

Lady: Thank you, I love you!

Everyone in locker started staring at the man.
After sometime the man shouted "Does anyone know the owner of this phone?"

Well Jim maybe you don't hear "Let me know when the Fuller Brush man comes by, I need to get a few things from him." But it's still a slogan that is in it's 102nd year!

Granted most of my business is now done over the phone or internet but people still "catch me" when I'm out doing deliveries.

Every time I read one of these "Do you remember things." I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm still with the living. Shout it from the roof tops THE FULLER BRUSH MAN LIVES! Yes we are still going strong with over 200 high quality products to choose from. And as you "old timers" surely remember we still give a free gift with every order.
