My mother had some beauties. A couple I liked are "back to your dugout"
(learned from her teacher who had been in WWI) and "If wishes were horses
then beggars would ride".

The sad thing is that I now find myself using them and although it's
understood by my generation and those one generation below me, those
under 30 (the TV saturation generation) don't seem to possess the skills
to figure out what the sayings mean.

"You look like the wreck of the Hesperus". And, "You look like you were
dragged through a hedge backwards".

Ahhhh, memories. She used those 2 sayings too.
