Today is Ancestor Appreciation Day. I admire people who have the perseverance to discover their roots. It is a task I am not patient enough to tackle!

We are composites of things we see and hear. The most memorable we incorporate into our everyday conversations. Here are just a few of my favorites:

All right then. (Billy Bob Thornton, Slingblade)

Alllll RIIIIIGHTY then! (Jim Carey, The Mask)

Yippee skippy. (Ms. Piggy)

Okey doke/dokie.

Don’t get all twitterpated!

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. (KL about to partake in sushi for the first time!)

What don’t kill ya, makes ya stronger.

God willin’ and the creek don’t rise.

Whatever trips your trigger!

Whatever spins your wheels!

Yippee ki yay ______!(explective) (Bruce Willis, Die Hard)

Jeez  Louise!


Smooth move, Ace!

When hell freezes over!



Hold your horses!

Larrupin’! (My grandfather)

I’ll snatch you bald-headed! (Ditto)

Jeez O Pete!

Criminitlies! (Don’t know if it’s a word and don’t know how to spell it for sure  . . .)

Oh, boo/oh, waa. (As in boo-hoo)

What a goofer.

Say WHAT??

Celebrate your roots, and express yourself! C

    Criminitlies! My Pop use to say that a lot… He passed more than 10 years ago. Talk about a connection and appreciation for family ties – This one sure did it for me. Odd world sometimes how certain things lead together in some kind of twisted, yet ordered fashion. Guess it’s like Benjamin Button said – Life is best understood when looking backwards.

    I’m so sorry for your loss Cynthia… And that your grief is still so heavy.

    Cancer, or rather “the cure” did my Dad in… It was colon cancer and he opted for a clinical trial… Within three weeks the cocktail killed him. That has put a whole new slant on things when I hear that doctor’s “practice” medicine… Indeed they do. 😦
