okay, Ronnie, this Okie needs a little more explanation.

**This ain't my first rodeo. - Don't teach your grandmother to suck eggs. **
I thought the first one means something like you are experienced, but that translation is very strange and means nothing to me. ?? but I have lived a shelterd life. :wak

Texas Dictionary

>>A good friend from Texas (El Paso) sent these to me - they are a hoot!!

Yep, they're a hoot, all right. What's funnier yet is that many do talk like that here in Texas. The scary part is that we don't even have to have a dictionary to understand them!

Couple more:

Looks like she/he's been rode hard and put away wet - Rough around the edges.

This dog's too old to hunt - I've been there, done that, and too tired to care about it anymore.

Don't teach Grandmother...

Here's one translation that I found on the web:

... here’s what Charles Earle Funk says in “Hog on Ice” (Harper & Row, New York, 1948). “To teach one’s grandmother to suck eggs – To offer needless assistance; to waste one’s efforts upon futile matters; especially, to offer advice to an expert. This particular expression is well over two hundred years old; it is just a variation of an older theme that was absurd enough to appeal to the popular fancy...

Yep. Sure 'nuf. It's the same thang as ''This ain't my first rodeo.''

I always understood "Paint your butt white and run with the antelope" to mean "We done been caught doing what we hadden't otta be doing and we had best run, hide , and blend in with the crowd"
And once upon a time my ex wife , who at 20 was a pretty little thing, was described by my great uncle as "Pretter than a new born colt"
A man that worked at Shell oil with my grandfather was prone to be unpredictable and some times plain confused, Grand dad told me " he's only got 3 cylinders loaded and he don't know which ones", that was my clue to stay clear of the fellow.
From my fathers side came the expression"Booray Money" maybe spelled wrong, but it meant free unaccounted for cash to party with or just blow on a whim.

Can you stand one more?

... tighter than a tick.

Pronouced as two words: ty-der-in-a tick.

Usage: Man, 'em two's tighter 'n a tick.

Meaning: Nothing or no one can come between them.
