I would here this a lot, "Cats fur, to make a pair of kitten britches"!

Sometimes I heard this, "I'm happy as a clam in high water".

"Don't go making a mountain out of a mole hill."

"Quit your bellyaching"

"Don't make me turn this car around!"

Probably an old brand furniture maker like Broyhill or Barcalounger.

Here ya go

What is the difference between a sofa and a Davenport?
The word davenport actually describes a specific type of sofa, made by the manufacturing company A. H. Davenport and Company. Davenports were similar to futons, as they could be converted into a bed. Today it's hard to tell the difference between a couch, sofa and davenport.

That makes sense. When I was young, My moms parents had a couple of weird sofa combos. They would fold down into a bed. Not hideabed. More of what you are talking about. Finally, after 50 years.

Jeez, you know I love ya mother but (fill in the blank with the current complaint)

Alright son, quit making it hard on yourself (whenever I was trying to do something and was obviously doing it wrong.

Where the hell is my drink? (we all say it at family gatherings, and if you really lost your drink, you don't want to to be the one to say it...)

First and middle name whenever you **** up.

OH, Lord have mercy (when the old man was tired, amused, pissed...was a good all around catch phrase).

And below my Alice pic, that was one my dad said alot...

Man, I miss em both like crazy. Mom died 8 years ago and dad went 4 years ago. Hard to believe still...

My grandma used to call the couch a davenport. But it was just a couch.

My grandpa used to say after farting, "There's thunder on turd island, pretty soon there's going to be a shower of shit"

A bird on a telephone wire was a mugwump. His mug's on one side, his wump on the other.

He was a farmer and whenever he drove past a feed lot, he'd take a deep breath and say, "smells like money"

He had a bunch of stuff like that.

My dad used to say, "what goes around, comes around" whenever I fucked up.

When I was playing high school sports my dad would say:
Choke Up with two strikes
Wait on the hammer.
He's gonna waste one.
Rub some dirt on it.
Walk it off.
You didn't play well unless you walk off with a dirty uniform.
