Subject: RE: Origins: 'Skin the Cat' and other family sayings
Some that I recall from youth and often still use..I got what Paddy shot at..meaning nothing. Cold as a well diggers arse. He's all boat n no fish, meaning a braggart. They live on the smell of an oil rag, meaning they are poor. I must have a Dot Myra, meaning to wash yer face. He's lazy as Larrys' dog, he lays down to bark.
